    I have noticed quite a few people have called in to criticize The Wig (AGT sellout, etc). 2 minutes into the conversation they do a complete 180 and up the call with "Gee Howard, you convinced me you are not a sellout!". Who's idea is this? Marci? Fred? Wigward? Jason? Will?

    The guy today who started out by calling him a sellout was so obviously fake it was laughable.

    It's Howard. He has been using fake callers who claim Howard has influenced the way they think for years. I remember a few months ago a "caller" called in and said he was against gay marriage and then he heard Howard say "how does two men getting married affect my life?" and the caller said that Howard opened his eyes and he is now an advocate of gay marriage.

    Howard likes to make his audience believe that he has some kind of Svengali type of hold on his listeners and he can change anyone's way of thinking.

    The same people who write Howard's monologues must write the scripts for those calls. Nothing believable about them.

    Yep, I noticed this today on a call. It was not even close to seeming genuine. Wow what a bizarre show this is now.

    So what are the arguments/points Howard makes to Mr. Obviously Not Fake Caller to get him to change his mind so quickly and dramatically?

    Right, AGT was just a big money grab for Howard. The caller seemed to forget to mention that.

    Save everyone some time and effort and just have Richard call in as Ethel.

    Wow. No wonder he has been a struggling comic since the 90s.

    Fake callers have always been a part of the show....now they just don't care to make it seem remotely genuine. They don't give a fuck.

    Wiggy's explanation on how he is not a sell out didn't even make sense. Then the caller says thanks I changed my mind. :facepalm:

    Would love to hear the audio of this, but not enough to listen to the show to hear it! Hopefully someone here can post it! :hat:
