Foot in Mouth Disease

March 13, 2012

OMG! Did you see last night’s two-hour special of the Bachelor?

Fuck no!

Okay, I was talking to a buddy of mine last night about stand-up comedy and I said “You know who’s really funny? Patrice O’neal.”

“Yeah yeah, shame about him though eh?”

“What do you mean?”

“WIGSF, he’s dead.”


“He died a couple of months ago.”

“That sucks. He was really funny… What about John Pinette? He’s a pretty big guy too.”

“He’s playing Massey Hall in April. Tickets sold out in like an hour.”

“Shit man. One fat comic dies then all the other fat comics tickets sell out instantly. Gotta see ’em before they keel over and have a heart attack and die.”

I can’t be bothered to embed or link some YouTube clips of these guys but trust me, they’re funny. Look ’em up. Funny funny stuff.

Patrice O’neal, you’ll probably recognize him from the Charlie Sheen roast. He was the black guy who was surprised and a bit awed by William Shatner’s old-racist-man attitude. His Just For Laughs clips are really funny.

John Pinette, search for his stuff. Especially his routine about the all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet. He also has another bit about traveling from France to Italy just for a good meal. That’s hilarious. He also does a surprisingly good Michael Jackson impression.

    I didn’t know either of those guys by name but I remember them as Pitbull and Bumpo.

    I was listening to a radio show where comedians were talking about things that hecklers had shouted at them. The best one was:

    “You’re just saying funny things and people are laughing!”

    What do you say to that?

    Oh, that dry British wit.

    I was born with foot in mouth disease. I just diagnosed myself.

    The after-taste of toe jam is an early symptom.

    Another funny big guy is Gabriel Iglesias. He does the “I’m not fat, I’m fluffy!” routine.

    Sad that we lose them so young.

    I didn’t include Gabriel because as you said, he’s not fat, he’s fluffy. “Houston, we have a problem.”
