Discussion in 'The Anthony Cumia Show' started by Dionysus, Jun 11, 2015.
"Did Opie EVER make you laugh once? Like one hard laugh like Cumia use to do to you?"
Jimmy stayed with Opie for one reason - so he can hype his stand up act to the Sirius audience, which is larger than Cumia's.
No, but i did hear a chuckle a few weeks ago
I agree. He couldn't leave Sirius at the time the contract was up for renewal.
He did the right thing for his career.
The answer has to be no. Opie is dry as fuck..I've listened when to many hours of the show and have yet to hear a truly comedic comment from him.. Wish it was him being ousted..cumia and Norton would be a funny fucking listen
Might get to hear that soon. Once the new studio is up I think you got a good chance of Chippa and Ronnie B swinging by.
Opie's not supposed to be funny. He's a good broadcaster and radio host who surrounds himself with funny people. That's why he needed Anthony and eventually Jimmy. That's why now that Ant's gone there's usually another comic in the room. Opie knows how to work a radio show and keep it moving. Jimmy without him the other day was proof.
Valid point..however, folks like stern (maybe not so much these days but in the past) are able to perform both functions...I think the listener would hope that one of the dominant voices on a comedic radio show was actually funny
Yeah but can you imagine what the Stern Show would be like without Jackie or Artie?
Haha..yea..ive heard it the last 5 plus years..lower quality product indeed
Jim not answering question,too busy making money?
He made me laugh when Joe Piscapo called in from the airport
Opie was just ribbing him relentlessly and it was totally lost on Piscapo
What was Jimmy really supposed to do in that situation. Ant blew up his spot on purpose, for his own reasons, and Opie and Jimmy were left holding the bag. There was an entire staff of people to think about, and let's be honest, Jim's a very funny guy, but in this day and age he's too abrasive to rise above "niche" status. He also flat out said he didn't want to drive out to Long Island everyday. I also highly doubt Ron will ever be on Ant's show, he already does several hours on the air at Sirius with his various projects, he likes the gig and it's pretty clear the brass at Sirius like and believe in him, he ain't rocking his boat. It also seems like he's better friends with Opie off air.
Jim's humor goes over me. I tried. His fake tales of junior sex with boys and girls make me want to call the police for his concern.
Ronnie B has called in several times to cumia's show.
I wonder if Sirius ever told Jim to tone down his uncle Paulie characters pedophelia humour. Yesterday he went further than usual with raping kids jokes. I am not offended,but at some point Sirius will probably tell him to tone it down.
I think these tales were true,he is convincing about them at least.
He has carte blanche because he talks about his love for trannies. That means he gets a PC pass
He seems like a good guy. When I met him twice in montreal,he was pissing every half hour like me,we seem to have the same problems. And no,I didn`t peek at his genitals.
