I do like Big Dawg being so high up. But yeah, that list order isn't great. It did remind me of some older eps I need to check out, though.

I think it might've been Vulture who ordered the I Think You Should Leave sketches that had me scratching my head (opening sketch of the first episode is amazing, and they listed it last), but I guess it was nice that some people loved the things I didn't care so much about. drat that show is so good.

If your list's top 10 doesn't include a single Andy Daly character (let alone 10 like any decent list would ) then I gotta dismiss the whole thing right out of hand.

Though I'll get flak but I think Tiny/Victor should be one shared rank.
E: and not even a passing mention of "Hey Nong Man?" I just think Jason got shafted. He/Jeff should have been higher.

Really solid episode today. Alimony Tony isn't my favorite PFT but he's still a PFT (and I do like that he originated from an off the cuff embrace of a catchphrase submission). Rhys Darby and Matt Apodaca were both great. And the new plug bag theme made me laugh.

For those who didn't listen, also some bad news, the CBB TV show will be leaving Netflix on June 2.

I dunno. Maybe she was just in promotion mode but she was on High and Mighty and was really talking it up. She's a big David Spade fan. But I can never tell if other comedians are really into people like Spade and Sandler or just don't want to say anything bad for business.

She got to work with some of her comedy heroes, she was 2nd billed, she had a good time doing it by every account, got a paid vacation out of it, and it is probably a guaranteed hit due to a modest budget plus how popular Happy Madison films are, especially on Netflix. She's on a billboard in Time Square. I'm sure she's fine.

I think it's a bit of both. Sandler and Co were really fundamental for that generation of comedians. I get it. My indie theater showed old Sandler comedy routines as a pre-show to Uncut Gems and it was still pretty funny. But yeah, Hollywood is a small town; Gabrus and his group aren't going to talk poo poo about the highest paid comedic actors who make a bunch of movies every year for Netflix, whether they like the movie or not.

They save that for the Shadow Wolves.

She's amazing in it. You don't see a lot of women going for physical comedy, I guess Melissa McCarthy...

Anyway, Lauren killed it, Hellstar is amazing, I laughed a lot! I encourage you to see it if you are a fan of Lauren's. She worked hard and and she showcases her many talents.

Reviews can be helpful, but when it's a broad comedy, maybe just shut your brain off and enjoy yourself?

One of her recurring characters sells sopping wet rugs out of I think an old pizza place... what exactly is so sophisticated about her comedy that makes this movie not worth it?

My problem with many of the Happy Madison movies is the misogyny also some of the gross out humor isnít to my liking but otherwise Iím sure itíll be funny. I like Lauren and Iíve enjoyed many of Sandler and Spades movies.

She sells rugs sopping wet with dirty water from the leaking toilet, and she only likes pizza served in a very specific, unusual way: she likes it round, with a layer of sauce (red sauce, tomato sauce), evenly distributed cheese, and maybe, maybe some pepperoni.

I was watching a live stream thing about a month ago or so, and Bert Kreischer was introducing Adam Sandler and he fanboyed out so hard it was embarrassing. I'm sure Sandler is used to regular rear end people telling him how much they love him in [insert wrong name of movie here], but for a fellow comedian to do it... painful.

Bert loves to fanboy though. I mean, he still loves Ari Shaffir even after he drugged him. He wants to be liked a bit too much I think. Except when it comes to PFT though.

I went down a Kreischer rabbit hole not to long ago and while I'm not a big fan of him, his love of comedy was a bit infectious and I like a bit of the 'inside baseball' talk.

The majority of the negative review of The Wrong Missy are essentially ďthis would be great if everyone was up to Lapkusí level.Ē Though I thought Swardsonís character conceit was also funny (HR guy who spies on everyoneís private data because of course he does).

Then thereís Schneider just kind of existing to go on vacation.

It has some draggy stuff on the back end of the movie, but if nothing else just watch the cold open style intro scene to see how unhinged Lauren is rather than the party girl aesthetic the trailer highlights.

Yeah he's a good storyteller, and I found the show I watched to be entertaining enough that I considered going to his show (that was then covid'd out, funnily enough I did have a ticket to the Sandler one also covid'd). He shoud've kept it in his pants a bit more when telling Sandler he loved Precious Gems, though.

What's the thing about PFT, I'm intrigued!

I get it. He does the same around Dave Attell.

The PFT is just based on random thing's I've read but nothing definitive. I might be conflagration the "beef". I'd say ask the Google. I've only done a shallow dive into it. I think on one level it was just a business thing at one time and on another they're both really other ends of the spectrum and I think PFT is a bit of the Platonic ideal of improv, pretentious, "cerebral" comic, in Bert's eyes. It's the anthesis of his method. He believes in crafting jokes and honing a bit as opposed to making comedy in the moment. That's not to imply that PFT only does that. He was a stand up too. But he's just the one on Bert's radar.

There does seem to be the difference between standups and improv ("alternative" comedians"). I kinda get it but there's room for both. I mean compare PFT in a suit to a shirtless Kreischer. They're just too different I think.

I do think and ep of Bert on PFT talking it out would be fun/interesting.

Edit: Looking around again, it may have had more to do with Ari. I'm still not sure why people put up with him and he should have had the poo poo kicked out of him and been black-balled out of comedy years ago. He's just a punk. The only time he was right was about Kobe and it was the only time he got any flak.

Peak CBB was loving amazing. I think the first episode I listened to had Andy Samberg and Daly's life of the party character. I remember something about wet jackets for some reason but don't remember the context exactly. After that I was hooked and Andy Daly was someone I actively watched out for in any media (the CBB bump!).

As do I. One of my favorite moments of CBB history is when Scott asks Don if he manages the arclight. It's such a perfect payoff to a long running joke i've ever seen. Andy is clearly delighted by it.

I watched The Wrong Missy, overall it had a bit of the gross out and misoginistic stuff I was expecting but there were also a few really good laughs. Nothing was so terrible it ruined the movie for me, which is a nice plus, even had some nice moments. Overall I thought it was a pretty funny movie and Lauren and her humor are definitely the best parts of the movie, worth a watch if you're into the kind of stuff Happy Madison produces.

Also listened to the CBB episode and it was alright, not a huge knee slapper but a nice middle of the road episode. It did make me want to watch the movie though so not too bad I suppose.

Best laugh for me was the cliff diving scene
