Did Regan seem like Cringe Radio to you?

It might just be me (and often it is), but Regan was giving me douche chills during the interview I heard while going to work. It seems as if the guys were forcibly trying to laugh at his bits, but it all came off as fake to me...no real "just hang" or real laughs.
I'm not knocking the guy. Hell, he'll do more to make some people enjoy themselves than I ever will.
My take this morning, though, was that it was cringe-worthy and uncomfortable.
I'm just sayin'.......

I saw it the other way, he was forcing himself to laugh at the boys stuff.

Guess I really didn't listen close enough. For some reason it just seemed too uncomfortable for me to turn up the volume...

Yeah, it was uncomfortable. Opie is in love with the guy and I enjoy his act on a stage but I personally don't like him much on the show. When someone comes on and is predominantly doing material as the boys force some laughs to help it along, I feel like I'm listening to Bob and Tom.

Opie and Anthony is the radio version of reality TV. Not everyone can hang with it. Some comedians are just there to plug their gigs. They are just too used to going on regular radio shows and doing a minute of material and leaving. Just cracking jokes off the cuff doing improv is a talent all its own. Not everyone can do what Norton, Vos, Kelly, and Burr can do. Thats why they fill in for Norton so much. I have feeling that Regans comedy isn't quick. I bet He takes a while to think out his material.

Regan is a master of silliness, and deep down, our shock jocks love silliness. i think when they laugh at him, they do mean alot of it.

remember part of the fun with regan is the ridiculous faces he makes when playing the part of the fool in his bits.

jimmy being a comedian will seldom laugh out loud, but he still acknowledges when somethings funny.

It noticably turned.

I actually called in with the lead in to the news reporeters doing accents jokes.

I hung up right before Opie segwayed to it because I started thinking that maybe making a joke about asian accents in todays radio culture was not a good idea.

I wonder if they actually knew the joke, because I thought that the boys def. had the same thoughts I did after Regan did the bit.


I hope i didn't use Regan to get the boys fired :)


(seriously, I was the guy who called in with the setup, Opster refered to me as "somebody")

the boys are huge fans of Regan so there is no surprise when he does his bits

they are hilarious everytime, but you can't expect a real genuine reaction to a joke that they've heard a few times as they give when someone says something funny and unexpected on the fly

Brian Regan is hilarious and I never turn it off when he is on the show, whether he is doing his material or "hanging."

This has got to be a gag. Brian Regan is one of the best friends this show has. Not to mention a funny and talented comedian. There has got to be a "pee in butt" thread you guys can join in some where.

I like turtles.
I also like Brian Regan. So do Opie and Anthony.
They go way back.
Maybe today wasn't his best appearance, but Regan rocks the fat ass.

I've never enjoyed BR on the show. He's a good comedian (not great, but good) in his own element, but I don't think O&A are said element. The appearance today was the equivalent of slamming-on the brakes at 75 m.p.h.
Go do "Morning Zoo" radio with Bob & Tom or JohnBoy & Billy, BR. . . Not hatin'. . . Just sayin'.:action-sm

I NEVER got Brian Regan. I just dont see what's so fuckin funny about him? What, he says it in a "dumb guy voice"? His jokes just arent funny to me, I dont understand why people go so fucking crazy about him.

I was at this party in the Valley, and everyone was drinking and shit and next thing I know it's like 1 am and Im in this living room with like 15 people and someone had put on a Regan DVD of his stand up. This fucking room was going nuts over this shit. I didnt laugh once, and I was hammered. Y'know, when everything's funny? And then I'm "that guy" like, "Dude get a sense of humor, maaaaan..." Im like "Fuck you."

The guy is not funny, I fucking hate when he's on and I usually end up turning the show off. He's as bad as Bob Kelly.

Read your own post. Don't you realize, if everyone around you see's it one way, and only you see it another, maybe it's you and not them?

Brian may be the greatest live stand up in the last ten years.

There are a few "doesn't get the bit guys" on this thread. Don't you fools understand that people calling up to request his bits and O&A forcing him into bits is, in itself, a bit?

If your not a long term listener, I suppose, you wouldn't know they do that to him every time he comes in.

I completely understand, I just don't think it's very funny to hear a guy do material, as I said it makes me think I'm listening to Bob and Tom. When he's not going into a bit that he does in his act he's pretty hit or miss leaning a little more toward miss. It's only my opinion but I enjoy when a comic can come in and hang and just be a funny guy rather than come in and do bits that a good percentage of people have heard before with the occasional improv.

Apparently someone has to call women cunts or tell racist jokes to make some of you guys laugh.

Regan is probably the funniest "clean" comic I can think of.

And the whole thing with forcing him to do bits is a running gag. He's not but best fit for the show, but his wholesome shtick is a nice change up every once in a while.

Regan is a genius. Whether you like his comedy or not to be that funny while keeping it so clean takes true talent.
I personally am not a huge fan of his but can appreciate his talent in the execution of his material, and his ability to come up with new shit rather than relying on the same worn out shtick.

Regan is the fucking best. The guy is hilarious on stage and he's great on the show. There are always some moments in the show where he is put on the spot. More now then ever. Why? Because that's part of the bit. He's trying to protect an image that allows him to succeed with his material and O&A put him on the spot and make him cover himself. They've acknowledged many times that he is protecting an image and admitted they like to mess with him.

wasnt the whole bit part of an ongoing gag from years ago? they even said that on the show. Some people hear take things a bit to much and take everything as literal. Remember this is O&A they do like to fuck with the listers from time to time.

To be honest, if someone isn't offended, it's probably not funny.
Regan is the only exception I know to that rule.

Regan is probably the funniest "clean" comic I can think of.
There is another?
