I am certainly not.

I sure do feel the "impermanence of life" weigh less heavy on my soul after having TJ Miller stimulate hitherto unused thinking muscles by pointing out female comics constantly talk about the vagina. Political correctness: 0, TJ Miller (The Emoji Movie): 1

I'm starting to come around because it's looking more and more likely that he's going for an Andy Kaufman thing.

It absolutely is. He's an absurdist. This is what he does. I loving love it personally as I often behave the same way.

Now, being an absurdist comes from like... one of the deeper levels of insecurity - so I wouldn't say it's a *positive* trait necessarily. But I totally identify with it.

He's being super blunt about what he's doing and a bunch of people are still reacting like he's serious. Maybe it's just an element of people only reading headlines.

He doesn't have the comedic chops to pull a move like this off. He's not funny enough to pretend to not be funny like Kaufman did.

If it was like, Nathan Fielder or something I'd probably be on board. This, however just sort of seems like a legit meltdown thinly veiled as comedy.

its not like he isnt funny, its just that the vast majority of people dont find absurdist humor funny because its their first exposure to him.

Listening to his podcast even, its rarely the highlight of any of the episodes and what is usually the funniest bit is regular story/anecdotal comedy, or the in-jokes with the other host, which is what I think most peoples only exposure to absurdist comedy is.

If that's what he's aiming for, he's in trouble, because Andy Kaufman wasn't funny, and TJ Miller has even less charisma. Oh well, he got confused as to whether I was tuning in to watch Silicon Valley or to watch TJ Miller, that's fine, there's other loud people that good writers can write for.

How is "female comedians aren't funny, they only talk about their vaginas" absurdist humour?

Solice Kirsk

Reminder that Mel Brooks and WB cartoons use absurdist humor, so it's not like he's even close to doing that "medium" well either. I think he's not as funny or important as he thinks he is and once this cache of movies is over he may very well slip into obscurity, or wind up just doing voice over commercials the rest of his life.
