I Have no idea where to but this.
Mother of fuck.
Fuckin' home run Sol-leeee!
Literally got 1 minute into the first clip. Terrible.
well....he's trying....he needs to watch these videos and work on his timing and pacing...he doesn't seem to have confidence in most of what he says...
That was a carpet bombing. His material AND delivery suck: a crackhead doesn't hallucinate and think he's an orange - even if he did, it's just not funny.
He shoulda done the whole act in Chip's voice.
Well, he's wearing a Sabaton shirt so all is forgiven.
The sympathy laughs from the crowd were the most cringe inducing part. That wasn't people genuinely laughing, that was people trying not to make him feel bad.
Sympathy laughs are the participation trophies of comedy.
The audience is other comics waiting to do 5 minutes and tourists that got strongarmed into buying tickets by some guy in Times Square.
These guys are brand new at it, you can tell by their pacing and how nervous they are. So of course they're awful.
I don't feel right blasting an open micer. I have some limits. They tend to be a bit odd, but they are there.
A couple year old videos with less than 220 views between them. The guy is just starting out, and doesnt seem like comedy is going to work out for him. I dont see the point of starting a thread about it, he's bad, big deal.
He's not a newbie or an open mic guy. He's been at it for at least a year. He even got intro'd as a "regular" at that club.
Here's a gem from his "Comedy Empire" Facebook page:
I fart when I'm high on weed and I'm like "yo, dat roast beef smells great!" And the black guy thought I was talking about his dick.
So he put it in my mouth and gave me more free drugs.
The only thing he's got going for himself is the shameless ability to self promote.
Guy tried to give me shit for quoting Mark Twain in defense of smokers.
To be fair, honest autobiographies are rarely funny.
That is so douchechilly and embarrassing.
Why that isn't douchey at all.
Don't care. Don't tell me my video is shit when I'm quoting Twain you fucking turd hack, especially when your points are dogshit.
A whole year? Im surprised he hasnt been on the Tonight show by now.
Oh, he's not funny, but you know that it takes longer than a year to get over being nervous and learn pacing.
I guess the question is, will he ever be funny? I doubt it with that material.
So did you throw in the Jefferson "blood of tyrants" quote? You know, being all cultured and all.
A year is long enough to either come up with ONE good joke or realize you're not funny. He deserves a trashing. His problems go far beyond timing and confidence.
You can't become a good singer no matter how long you practice if you don't have a good voice to start with.
You can't become a good comedian no matter how long you practice if you don't have a sense of humor to start with.
Let him be a lawyer like the rest of them.
I know you think you're smarter than everyone here, but you don't know what you're getting yourself into here.
The fuck does that have to do with Twain and smoking. I wasn't making a liberty point just quoting a well known social commentator about the busybody nature of the aggressive anti smokers. If you want to say Twain's full of shit then do it but for fucks sake do it well.

I'm sorry. A battle involving an open micer and Mark Twain quotes is something I shan't josh about.
(I seriously can't be the only person who thinks the using famous figures quotes gimmick is slightly hacky. Maybe it's because I've seen the same quotes repeated ad infinitum, but I always imagine a smugness when the quote is delivered/posted.)
