Can someone at HBO rent the Howard Stern movie or read his book at least, the part where he explains that even crude humor still has to contain the humor part? This "comedy" special is so not funny, that it is almost a parody of bad comedy, like a Simpsons or Family Guy insert. But more accurately, its more of the Sarah Silverman style "look ma, Im swearing on stage and people are clapping for me". It is all so inane, that your blood pressure rises and not at the "performer", but at the dimwits who program this fare and their even dimmer wit counterparts that applaud or support it, which as a subscriber sadly includes moi. The TV directory channel contains more laughs and more pound for pound return on your cable buck. I will admit that like hookers, and wine and buildings etc., bad comedians age pretty well. An old guy mincing around telling horrible jokes actually is genuinely funny. I saw Charilie Callas in Vegas a few years back and almost croaked I was laughing so hard. So give it another 30 years, and Saget will be the bomb. Until then, Masochists will want to view Saget's other monuments to banality, "Full House" as well as the appalling and toothless parody, "Farce of the Penguins."
P.S. now he's on Broadway, and don't bother, I already asked and the theater won't let you in with a crate of old tomatoes.
