    His poor attempt at humor on the Wrap Up Show show is insulting. Someone must have told him he's a funny guy. Constantly lays eggs that nobody in the room laughs at. He just needs to take a tooth back and chill the fuck out.

    I would assume he's trying. I try and fail mostly too, but I don't stop trying.

    He's elite and has evolved in many ways, literally and physically

    That's the problem now. There's no one to keep Gary in check, except for Howard. No more Jackie, John, or Artie to tell him how horribly unfunny he is, and if a truthful caller squeezes through it's the usual "listen, that's your opinion. I think you're in the minority. What do you do for a living?"

    Gary never had character. Gary was always a dick. There was simply never an opportunity to display that due to having Jackie around, being Howard's #1 go-to whipping boy, then possibly Artie to keep him neutered. A fat contract and the wrap up show were all it took for the douchebaggery to surface. Being shallow and superficially motivated, his monkey-math tells him money + notoriety + power in the pecking order = superiority (and the right to say any stupid thing that comes to mind)

    All you need to know about Gary and Fred is that once they realized Robin and Howard were mad at Jackie he was out of their lives.

    When you spend more of your life being ridiculed and you finally get the chance to ridicule somebody, most people take it. My biggest criticism of him is that he's never exhibited any kind of backbone, and he piggybacked on Artie's coattails to make money.

    Gary's a decent storyteller (though those stories are EXTREMELY finite), but he's about as unfunny as Wiggy at this point.

    The only real question is who gave Gary any snark creds? What makes him believe he has any? Its a more advanced but similar case to John Hein's smugness that I've never been able to figure out the source of. Gary is and has always been the show punchline and its amusing watching him continue to struggle with it, he's certainly not the shot-caller he portends.

    Good point. John Hein may actually be an influence on him. Monkey see, monkey do.
