even jackie could make this sinking ship funny, only if he had the balls to call howard out.
For those who may have missed this in the "Breaking Wiggy Wig News" thread:
sorry jackie haters - jackie fucking ruled. as a subject of ridicule AND as a staff member...
As time goes on there seems to be a lot less Jackie hate. Everybody remembers how good the show used to be with the Jokeman. I wish Jackie would grow a pair and go on the attack against Wiggie
Give Rodney a chance!!!!!
He called people on their Bullshit
We wouldnt have Ronnie coming in every 5 minutes and can u imagine how much fun Jackie would have with JD?
And that fuckhead Bababooey would not be as pompous with Jackie giving him the abuse he deserves
Damn those show were funny. I could listen to Jackie busting for hours.
I didn't like Jackie because he wasn't funny. Now, however, I realize just how important he was to the show. He drove a lot of the funny stuff. He may suck at telling jokes or doing standup, but what he didn't suck at was creating comedy on the show.
That was the point.
His unfunniness was funniest.
Jackie wrote lines for Howard and the Jackie Puppet, goofing on how hacky Jackie's stand-up was -- never mind the material he wrote for others to goof on his wife.
That's f*cking funny!
Also, there was no one better than Jackie at instigating a Baba Beatdown.
I love Jackie!
Not just Baba, but everyone. Jackie kept everyone honest - including Howchie and Robin. The gay and faggot subjects Howard drones on about, the twitter pictures, Beth at every social event, Robin's snake oil weight-loss plans.....etc. All these would have been fodder for Jackie.
Exactly. Let's face it, Jackie played a major role in Howard's success. And when you had Jackie and Billy together, it was the best radio there ever was.
Howard is now, who Howard is now. Nothing would have changed that. If Jackie was on the show now, he would shut up, collect his check and kiss Howard's ass like everyone else. The reason Jackie was able to bust Howard's balls in the past is because that was the kind of show it was back then. Howard wouldn't tolerate it now. Part of the reason Jackie didn't return to the show was because Howard knew it was time for him to go. Howard could have forced Cheaposano to take Jackie back but he didn't.
Good point, Popeye. Jackie would have fell in line just like the rest of them. Fred won't even play sound effects anymore let alone play an inappropriate laugh during a news story. Gilbert hasn't changed, so Howard simply doesn't have him on anymore. Howard runs the show, so people can only be as funny as he allows.
