"Amy Schumer was playing the man-child role, and Hader was the responsible woman role"

>>>good point, I did think that was the goal. I'm not a fan of man-children roles in movies, tho, but i'll give the writers credit for reversing the roles. Its been sorta tried before, say Gary Cooper in Ball of Fire. Except back then, there was usually a moral about how the simpleton's way is better than the urban cynic. Maybe that's all a holdover from comedy in the silent movie era, where the stumblebum always wins against the rich swell. "Lowbrow" was more about the working class/ tramp doing well, than a reference to material about bathroom humor. Tho when Groucho Marx got his own TV show...he could get quite bawdy with the crowd when the camera was off for a commercial. Back then, tho, the yokel was like a noble savage against the city slicker...now the yokel is Redneck target, proud to be unrefined.

If you like George Carlin, I think "Dogma" is still available in full on YouTube for free. He plays a bishop, if memory serves. It may take two times to watch to figure out what's going on in this satire on religion.

back at university, we'd have comedy club night every other Friday. I couldn't name any of them, but most were really good, confident on stage...they were fun to watch live. I don't know how these things are now.

when i was 11 12 my mom and dad got many george carlin on vinyl- he is one of my all time favorites.
i do not always get amy schumers humor on her night time program, i really enjoyed and laughed during snatched.- The man i was with and other men in the theater were laughing at all the same places the women in the audience were. so maybe it was a script she did not write or input, and the writer was better at relating to both genders? i do not know, yes much of the humor was directed at or about women's experiences- however many male comedians make jokes about men and directed at men's experiences but i find them funny- i can appreciate men's view point. to say women's experiences can't be related to if your a man, are women's opinions that devalued and misunderstood? we got serious problems.
I like gaffigan, very innocuous, non offensive, the food junky at 3;00 am in the grocery buying oreos, doritos, ice cream etc- and the cashier starts asking him and talking with him about his purchase- does a drug dealer do this he asks, does a little skit. it was funny. he does focus a bit much on food he could attempt a bit of variety. He also over deprecates his looks and size- the exaggerations are too much- calls himself something akin to scary monster lol he looks like an oversized pink easter bunny- nothin scary there. (sp? i never figured out the difference between scar and scare)
there is another forum on funny movies?? i cannot recall from all the post what the O topic was ?and now it is oh your cheating hair- mine too a box lol

Mustang, Amy was making a statement with that movie, so it was a complete ripoff as far as entertainment goes for me. That's the way her "Inside Amy Schumer" show changed to be also, so not a fan.

Pig, what's your take on Richard Pryor? He was so freaking funny! His routine about when he set himself on fire while freebasing was hysterical! There are some good comedians out there that I've seen on comedy shows that don't have recognition yet.

Marina Franklin is very funny. She does dating humor, with black/white humor:

Holy shit. You DO look like Carlin.

As for Carrot Top's condition, when I saw him, he was wearing a very loose fitting shirt that had the word "Caribou" across the front of it. He was 2-3 inches shorter than me and a smaller frame, but one could tell by the toning of his body parts that were exposed he hits the gym very hard and is a far cry from what he used to be. Yes, it is also refreshing considering how many famous comedians live/lived self-destructive lives.


Pig, what's your take on Richard Pryor?


Undoubtedly a legend. His life story is jaw-dropping, too. There was a time when he would have made my comedy Mount Rushmore, but today, I'm not sure.

Oh we are talking about comics? Awesome. I haven't seen a lot live but -

Amy Schumer - saw her when she was doing her Back Door Tour. Had a great time. She wasn't pee your pants funny nor was she fall asleep bad. I was with four close friends and we all had an amazing dinner with drinks before the show, we didn't have to make the drive in and out of Jax, and the entire night was comped. We would have had a great time no matter who it was so my review is definitely tainted. The fact that I don't really recall any of the bits she did than night is very telling. I watched her latest show on Netflix and it was gawd awful.

I saw Chappelle when he was here in February. He was hilarious. He did three shows. I like that he is so topical. No two shows are the same.

Saw Andrew "Dice" Clay Sunday and he was pretty funny and a nice guy.

Seeing Jo Koy tonight (and Sunday). I wasn't very familiar with him. I watched a couple YouTube videos to familiarize myself with him. I guess I'll know what I think later tonight.

Nothing compares to the Carlins, Pryors, or Hedbergs. I wish I had seen any of them live. I remember going to the theater to see Eddie Murphy Raw. It was one of the first dates my ex and I went on. We were able to sneak drinks in the theater. I just remember laughing so hard.

I know he's a pariah now, but one of the most debilitating laughing jags I ever had was the first time I watched "Bill Cosby Himself". Brain damaged kids. Too f'n funny.

Pick your brains up, and put them back in your head. I brought you into this world, I can take you back out again...

I think that's what made Cosby's fall so far. He could do Fat Albert, tell stories of childhood anyone could relate to, kids or parents, and he could tell Eddie Murphy and Pryor to clean up their act. All before Cliff Huxtable. And then he becomes a monster.

I miss the Chappelle Show. He's one funny dude. Jo Koy used to be on "Chelsea Lately" all the time. He was silly, maybe his stand-up is better.

Bill Cosby was funny, back in the day. I saw him hosting the Tonight Show. I really wanted to see Johnny. Aretha Franklin was the musical guest

I can't help but wonder if he started the show with his infamous "soooo.....got my tongue up this chick's a$$" line.

I saw her on a few Comedy Central celebrity roasts years ago and she had some bright spots. She was like the female equivalent of Don Rickles, but much, much raunchier

You got me thinking, Pig. I only remember Rickles from Dean Martin's celebrity roasts and Carson, but I think in that time, being unPC maybe had a better chance of getting past network censors than being crude about sex. And of course there wasn't a Twitter storm that would kill future sales at the box office. Perhaps now, for comedians, raunchy sex talk is the last safe way to shock an audience. Not that they don't go after race on Comedy Central roasts, but it seems like there is more reference to sex than there used to be, like its a safer frontier or something. Maybe I should read "the Essential Lenny Bruce" still sitting on the shelf and find out. I kind of like how in the older days, sexual references were more creative, instead of just being "out there".

And then that makes me think of Buddy Hackett. Apparently during the commercial breaks on the Tonight Show, he'd let fly. I'll bet a lot of his routines are on YouTube to enjoy.

I've seen Andrew Dice Clay at the Tropicana, and I think he's fairly humorous

I'll tell you who NOT to see, and that's Carlos Mencia. His racist humor isn't the least bit funny. Also, he's known in the comedy world as a "joke thief", because he steals material from other comics.

He was at The Orleans Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas a week ago. We happened to get free tickets---otherwise, I wouldn't have paid a dime to see his show.

Old black and white clips of comics on shows like Ed Sullivan are painfully corny to watch.

I know the material was fresh AT THE TIME but now .....( shudder )

There's a list of comedy-based internet radio stations in iTunes, and several are annoying because they play maybe one joke from a standup routine or TV special, and then cut to another, along with several commercials and PSAs. Other stations play the same Robin Williams and Carlin and Blue Collar routines so much you get bored with them.

One channel out there would play pretty much a whole comedy show, or at least 20-30 minutes at a time - and played all kinds of classics back into the 50s and 60s including Pryor, Buddy Hackett, Don Rickles, Flip Wilson, Bob Newhart and Rodney Dangerfield. More modern comedians would be included too. I have a feeling they violated some sort of copyright because I haven't seen it 'active' for some time now.

Hearing how comedy has evolved over time is very interesting - but impatient Millenials probably have no idea. Instead of instantly being 'offended' by a 60-year-old off-color joke and changing the channel - you learn more about how society really WAS back then by how the audience reacted to certain types of humor. People treat comedy very personally - almost selfishly - they have to make YOU laugh to be funny - but people laugh for all kinds of reasons, and everyone else doesn't have to cater to what you like.

" I used to love Red Skelton show and the Jackie Gleason show."

Those shows would never be allowed nowadays, in the world of being politically correct. Ralph saying "to the moon" to Alice would be viewed as promoting domestic violence, and Red Skelton playing Freddie the Freeloader would be viewed as making fun of homeless people. But the shows were funny, and it was a break from the sanitized "perfect family" shows, where wives did housework wearing dresses and jewelry with perfect hairdos, and children were mature, miniature adults who never acted like children, and sometimes gave words of wisdom to their parents.

I can just see them trying to get through an entire classic Cosby routine. "O-M-G!! Get to the point already!!"

The same can likely be said about the Norman Lear sitcoms of the 70's and 80's. Just before I got rid of cable 6 years ago, I didn't watch much else other than reruns of those shows.

I know there's been talk about a "Married with Children" reunion, too, but seriously, how in the hell could they pull that off today?

I cut the cord and got rid of cable last year when they raised my bill to an absorbent monthly fee. I use an indoor antenna and get about 40 channels. About 25 are ones that I would watch and the others are shopping, religion, Asian, Spanish, cartoons and local governments shows. One of the channels I get is called MeTV and they show a lot of the older shows like Mary Tyler Moore, Rhoda, The Odd Couple, Cheers, Taxi, and Get Smart, to name a few. Comcast said they would
lower my bill, but I already got the antenna and was extremely happy with it.

I also use Hulu, because I can stream it on my tablet in my bedroom where I don't have tv reception. It's about $13 a month for their commercial-free subscription. Hulu has some good shows that are theirs only.
