Its 2012 and Jackie and Billy West are still on the show. What would it be like?
I probably wouldn't fall asleep listening to it.
I Love Jackir and Billy Wste .
they should have there own post show & make fun of the hss.
Those 18 live-read commercials during the news would be *hilarious*.
Marge Schott would be back from the grave
I'm a Willy Best fan
love them both but I am afraid they would be neutered to the point that they could not provide any "real" humor in the "evolved" show.....I think nobody could save the show anymore.....
Until Shuli came in to tell about how he has been doing comedy for 32 years and that he taught Billy how to do the Larry Fine impression.
If Jackie were allowed to be honest about Wiggy and Wonky it would be great and I'd gladly pay to listen but no way Wiggy could tolerate that
plus they could bring artie in to top off wiggiy's top.
Billy West would be prank calling Tradio as Larry Fine. Jackie would be headlining Ronnie's Block Party.
I hate to say it, but they don't work hard anymore on that show including guys like Fred.
Fred was once really talent too. He did a lot great bits. Now he has been relegated to providing Howard's laugh track. He isn't coming up with the well timed sound bites anymore. There were days in the past where Fred's well time sound bites made the show. Now he does almost nothing and when he does half the time he is late or doesn't even play the right clip.
Howard has set the bar pretty low these days and everyone is following suit. I think even Billy and Jackie would do the same.
the return of "dueling Andy Rooneys"
we're supposedly PAYING for an AD FREE show..
who gets the money for these commercials?
let me guess....hmmmm..not sirius I bet.
Put that guy in the Artie chair.
Yup...the show is a different show than it used to be for sure. But it is what it is .No point in wishing for what was and never will be. Live in the now.
Sirius should hire them to do a show on Raw Dog or one of the other comedy channels.
To show how really lazy Fred has gotten, back during the Krock years, fred had to use tapes. Now his sound effects are all digital, and can be accessed with a click of a mouse. How much simpler could it be? If he is writing anything for Howard as of late, it surely isn't funny.
Lack of Jackie is what made Howard lose his edge. Jackie had that cruel, inappropriate sense of humor that just made the show hillarious. With Benjy writing Howard's lines and premises now, it's more neurotic type humor. And Howard just doesn't pull it off. Jackie also wasn't a kiss ass, so he kept Howard's ego in check.
I love Billy west. His interviews on the nerdist and talking toons podcasts were great.
i don't think it would do any good. look at the last 2 times gilbert was in. howard got mad at him for being funny
