Tosh's incredulous comedy leaves no conversational stone unturned. Thankfully everyone is safe because these are just jokes. This awaited special shows the evolution of Tosh as a comedian and preeminent voice today.
Several comedians perform at the 2015 South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas. Hosted by W. Kamau Bell. Performances by W. Kamau Bell, Matt Braunger, Mark Normand, Iliza Shlesinger, Nate Bargatze, and Beth Stelling.
W. Kamau Bell,
Completely out of touch. More entitlement than comedy.
First of all, regardless of the weak personalities making awkward special interests group speeches, the low quality (and often incongruent) laugh track makes very difficult to consider this a credible production. If television reflects our culture then I can only hope the viewers of this show are a small and isolated group. The episode I viewed this evening included a man introduced as a comedian. He apparently read a TelePrompTer and paused seconds before each laugh track audio. His jokes were a litany of comparisons between 7 years of working at McDonalds with 7 years in the US military during the Vietnam war. The biggest surprise was a few incidents in which the audience in the studio groaned along with the laugh track.
