238th Post - My Thoughts on Last Comic Standing

I have been watching Last Comic Standing this season, not having seen the first 5 years of it. My feeling is that it is a little sad to watch the spectacle of people who have no discernible sense of humour nonetheless attempt to vie for this prize.

There are those who feel I am a comical fellow. Jaunty. Witty. Whatever. I don't especially agree with this, but it sure is nice to have someone say something nice to me and about me for a change. But I am under no illusions that I could ever take a swing at something like the last comic standing. I realize that many/most comics are neurotic bundles of nerves and insecurity. But it does not follow that a messed up dude will be funny on top of that.

I mean, just because you can sell aluminum siding with an ironic sense of detachment, doesn't mean that you have what it takes to be the last comic standing.

Now, if you'll excuse me, it's back to the show.
