...then it is no longer a comedy show. Like obscenity, funny can't be explained or defined, but you know it when you hear and see it. If you have to keep telling people what the point of the show is and that its a comedy show, then by definition it is no longer funny. For example: When the Jackie Puppet was interviewing Conan O'Brien in 1994, we all knew the HSS was a comedy show. It didn't need to be explained to us. But when you keep interviewing the same dull guests over and over, we don't think its comedy and no amount of reminding us will change our minds.
