Quotes

Cloris Leachman: I'm not here to roast Bob Saget; I'm here to fuck John Stamos. Stamos, you shouldn't talk so much; your mouth is canceling out all the work your ass is doing. If you play your cards right, I'll do something no girl has ever done to you: Put you in the movies.

Insipid Comedy
25 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

I like roasts. I like comedy. I am not offended by blue comedy.

I did not care for this.

First off, Bob Saget isn't exactly my kind of comedian. Yes, I am aware his comedy is different than his Full House persona. He was about the highlight of the show.

John Stamos hosted. I suppose that is forgivable given their careers. There isn't much forgiving the stream of comedians who followed.

Most of them were C+ comedians at best. All worked blue. It seemed like the F-bomb was required. One here or there would have been no problem, but it was some people's act.

Why was Cloris Leachman on the dais?

Love Norm Macdonald, but his set was awkward. Would have liked to have seen Sarah Silverman at the lectern, not taped.

What was most horrific, however, is that the comedians worked from very visible scripts, often reading their jokes. Really? This is how you are going to present yourself on national television?

Don't waste your time on this rubbish.
