    Went to a casino in Windsor Canada to see Howie Mandel tonight. Shuli opened for Howie. He was absolutely harrable. 100% of his act was wife/kids, and weed comedy. All hack jokes, recycled through the ages. At least 4 uncomfortable pauses, that resulted in "baba booey", his only laughs in 20 minutes. I honestly felt bad for him. Howie was pretty decent. I have seen him two other times, and this was on par with previous shows. Is Howie hurting that bad that he has to put hacks on in front of him? I know most openers are hacks, but this bad?

    Just surprised he was actually working a 5,000 seat venue, with a good, well known stand up. It doesn't add up.

    Must be a Buchwald thing. I've seen Shuli with the Killers of Comedy. He really does kill comedy.

    The wig had some thing to do with that… Not sure the wig would do any thing for any one, though.

    Smart move by Howie. Shuli is an extremely easy act to follow. Plus, he probably works for peanuts.

    Always said he does too much weed shit. A lot of the audience can't relate to 35 minutes of pot jokes.

    I don't think I have ever laughed at anything Shuli has ever said. Pretty damn sad.

    shuli is a superfan from the 90's another hack ass licker they gave a job too. no talent not an ounce of an ability to ever make anyone laugh. If he wasn't jewish, howard woulda fired his usless ass during the great purge a few years back.

    I have never, ever laughed at anything Shuli has said, I really don't like him at all. I hope he stays out of the studio. He has never been back in the "Artie chair" thank God.

    Hey, he's paid his dues. 13 years in Vegas. Calling radio shows. Doing open mic nights. Pushing wheelchairs in airports.

    Anyone who was born with the name Shuli and never changed it deserves to be shit on

    Shuli was not his birth name. It was Shlomo. But the other kids teased him when his parents moved to America from Israel when he was young. The kids called him Sholmo The Homo all the way through school, so when he turned 18 years old, he had it legally changed. Or maybe they gave him Shmuley as a birth name and he changed it to Shuli. All right, I made that up. But it coulda happened. Maybe I have a hard time with Yiddish names.

    The wig only does stuff if there is something in it for him. A marble is a marble.

    Looks like the show was over and they stood up to leave the venue. What a tool and not surprising from Mr. 1.52%.

    I think you're right. The house lights are on and look at that Fat woman just right of center... She isn't standing to clap, she is heading for the aisle to leave.
