I had been looking forward to this HBO miniseries for months. :) That is, until it actually premiered last week and I found myself let down a bit. :cry: I really like Dane Cook and I was looking forward to the behind the scenes look...but last week for the first episode there was WAYYYYY too much whining between those guys Jay and Bobby. :rolleyes: It was ridiculous, they were BOTH annoying me and I wanted BOTH of them to just STFU. :rolleyes: Of course, I'm sure it's edited down that way to present some conflict but I'm making these comments based on the "characters" represented in the show. Gary Gullman seems promising though, so I'm looking forward to seeing some more of his bits (I never heard of him before this show).

Of course, Dane is great so I like that part of the show. He sold me back when he did the Denis Leary Roast and gave that bit about Gina Gershon (I can't even bother trying to type it out here ;) ). I don't even really remember him from Mystery Men, probably because I hate that POS movie and have blocked as much of it as possible from my memory? :crazed:

I haven't seen the show, but I just helped shoot the final episode last week. Dane is great and I was hooked after shooting him a couple years ago at the Comedy Store in LA. I have to admit though that he's much better LIVE. His 2 CD set let me down a bit.

What??? Retaliation is great ! :grin: Sure it's not as good since you can't see his goofy antics but the stuff that's on there is superb, for the most part. :grin:

Last night's episode of Tourgasm was way better than last week's, I thought, so that was cool. The whole thing with Jay trying a new joke on the fly was interesting and I could never work under such pressure. :D

Also, I liked Dane standing up for his tour manager guy and being accountable for the logistics of running a tour. It's one thing for "celebrities" to get to run around goofing off but there are tons of people (like you, stillakid, since you worked on the end of the project ;) ) working behind the scenes (and I mean actually working :D ) who don't get the glamour or anything.

I'm sure it's a comparison that holds true for many examples throughout the entertainment industry. ;)

I know, I was just goofing that there have been enough posts made by many of us over the years - enough to put into book form. :crazed:

Good luck with your proposals ! :)
I hope SSG forumites will get first crack at the initial batch of autographed copies? ;)

This show still hasn't impressed me. That Jay guy's "new joke" about killing people with kindness was horrible. Hopefully this show will improve as the season progresses. I can only hope.

I decided to watch this series too and found it mildly entertaining. Before this I had never heard of Dane Cook or any of the other comics for that matter. I think the show would be better if it was an hour long though. Its hard to tell who is funny and who isn't when they don't show much of their routine but based on what I've seen so far I'd say Bobby is my favorite.

Dane Cook is pretty damn hilarious, but there's a few kids at my school who don't shut up with his quotes. It's funny to a point . . . oh, and it helps if you're actually Dane Cook.

I'm still not overly impressed with this show although I found last weeks to be better than the others. That was a good little bit when they were at Niagra falls. Sucks for Bobby that he basically destroyed his knee. Maybe this will put an end to him and Jay's constant bickering though. I wonder if Bobby will be able to continue the tour with an injury like that?!?!?

I still haven't got around to watching last Sundays ep. I was thinking about throwing in the towel on this show but if you say this past episode was good Cae I guess I'll check it out.

Maybe not the whole episode but believe me, when you hear Bobby screaming about a f***in' turtle, well, you'll like that part I think. :D

I know I did. lol

Caesar I'm not sure if this has been said or not but you should be happy to hear that Dane is hosting the season premire of SNL.

Already ? He was just on last year but this will be cool...I hope it's better than the last one he did.

I suppose it makes sense since he's got that new Employee of the Month movie coming out. :)

Now that Tina Fey is gone I don't think Lindsey Lohan will be showing up as often.
