I just remember him being on fire across several appearances earlier this year, especially during the Bailey Jay Saga. But these last couple of appearances have been pretty bad , boring movie talk, like his weird rant on After O&A about how Terminator 2 is a complete piece of shit that doesn't hold up at all.
Jimmy gets old on occasion too, but at least he can back off his schtick and be a part of the conversation without killing the room.
That's one of my least favorite Jimmy things. That and when he starts talking fast you can hear him struggling for air haha. Once I noticed it I couldn't stop noticing it.
But on topic, I was just thinking the same thing during today's show. I used to really like Derosa's appearances on the show and I liked his one special I got. As time has gone on though, I've become really bored with him and his always sounding like he had a cold. I hope I come back around to liking Joe. I liked liking Joe.
Maybe if the show's talent booker wasn't a morbidly obese guy who can't speak and spends all his time following around shitty old Bruce Springsteen, they could find one of the fucking hundreds and hundreds of hungry young comics in the city to bring on.
Most funny stage comics wouldn't translate well to the air, it's true, but many of them have their own weekly podcasts where they bullshit with other local comics(I can think of like 10 off the top of my head), so they do have some kind of free form broadcasting experience.
Love the YKWD podcast in it's present incarnation. Soder, Fastuca, and the rotating cast is even better than when DeRosa was on. I listen to a bunch of podcasts with comedians, and Bobby has put together the one that I most look forward to listening to.
