Well, it was obvious from the beginning this show is flawed. I mean the selection process allows the producers of the show to pick the comics. Sadly, they forgot to tell the panel of experts. How bad is Jay Mohr?
It is too bad this show didn’t have the courage to follow the format of American Idol. Why not have real comics pick the ten finalists? Come on. And then, let the audience knock them down one by one (last five).
The decision to pair off the comics head-to-head in groups of three near the end is stupid. Is this really a fair test? And now the worst decision of all to put three comics in the final and you get to vote for one. This makes absolutely no sense. And statistically since you are voting on one category “who is the best comic” it makes less sense.
What can you say about a show that numbers the comics 91, 92, 93? This show must run on a very tight budget. Or, are they trying to differentiate themselves from American Idol with these little differences? Come on, gives us the viewers a break, we know its a copycat.
My personal pick would be Alonzo. This guy writes really good material. I could listen to him for an hour. I did like Jay London but do you really think you could watch and listen to this guy for 45 minutes straight? Does anybody believe that John and Gary deserve to be in the final three? John in my opinion did not deserve to be in the final five. Boring.
In closing, I will admit that I found myself laughing, often, throughout the season. So this comedy is fairly priced. But, if I had my druthers I would prefer to see more head to head comedy and less of “Ant’s” antics in the house. Of course, I did learn something I already knew; there are a lot of dysfunctional comedians in the world.
I would be interested in hearing the opinion of other BlogCritics.
