welcome to dark side of comedy week, for everyone that didn't get Child Death Week
I don't know, this is less the dark side than the mediocre side (so, like 90% of comedy).
But seriously, this is the kind of show that nobody who wasn't a bar regular or friends of the performers would sit through, much less enjoy (so, like 90% of comedy).
The only funny part is that Michael Moore Jr. was an NYU film major. It reminds me of a few months ago when a kid who was dressed in what amounted to a literal Woody Allen costume came in where I work and started talking about how Woody Allen is his idol and asking about Woody Allen (Woody shot some stuff there a year or two ago). Having people you look up to in your field is fine, but don't fucking dress like them.
I watched the whole thing waiting for said "destruction" too and all I got was people reading - READING - some C grade playground insults with a bit of casual racism thrown in.
Also missing the misogyny. All either of them did was insult the other's bodies and vices (his being food, hers being alcohol).
The only thing that was explicitly misogynist was the video title.
I'd change the "misogyny" tag to "casual racism"
the CONCEPT and fact that this went viral is rooted in msogyny, all the reddit neckbeard mofos watching what is just a straight Roast Battle (even kinda tame), you can see the professionalism between the performers at the end, they're really just battling it out for a cash prize (NYC expensive)
dont get your waddles in a bunch trying to wrap your head around it, Return to OZrk
The incredibly banal and fucking boring side of comedy.
The concept is just a shitty, tame, white people version of dozens.
I have no idea who any of the people in this are or that it went viral, I can totally see THAT being related to misogyny (especially since you mention Reddit) but since I don't know or care to know anything about these people I'm judging it solely on the actual content.
Yeah, this is most comedy clubs. Nothing special but there's a professionalism to it. This isn't misogyny or the dark side of comedy.
this is 'nothing happens'
There is nothing professional about reading off scripts. That's about as amateurish as it gets.
i think i get what you're trying to do, but wouldn't it have been better served linking to one of the inevitable 40-minute videos featuring fedora manbabies explaining how this innocuous routine totally proves women are incapable of stand-up comedy?
Yeah, the only time I've seen someone reading from a script has been in the corner of a bar with no stage.
And it's hard to say for sure because it was 7 years ago and I didn't know who he was back then, but I THINK it was Sam Hyde right before he moved to NYC.

Love the Euros asking what the reference is at his last joke.
Is that fucking Lenny Bruce on the end of their sign?
Why yes, I do believe that it is. Ghost stars for that.
Honestly, I'm not sure it is, I think it might be Dustin Hoffman in "Lenny" rather than the real Lenny Bruce.
I love women and I particularly like their twats and boobies, but sadly none of the above are on offer to me because I am a creepy fucking loner.
oh man so is the roast battle going to be a mainstream thing now
