I made a long trek to LA and was part of the live audience tonight and saw our Little Jimmy perform his stand-up and I'd like to share my post-show impressions. This will be negative before it gets positive, so bear with me. The short of it is that Jimmy ruled. Skip to the bold text for Jimmy-related stuff. This was the first time I ever attended a taping of a show and wow, it stunk. As an audience member, you're herded like cattle, constantly re-seated so they can group pretty people together for camera shots, and forced to clap like an idiot. The overall experience felt like a chore and I'll never do it again. Kimmel's staff was neither courtesy nor helpful. To them, I was there simply to provide them with laughter and applause. If I was a regular fan of the show, I think I would've been majorly disappointed. I'd like to make special mention of their warm-up comedian, Don, who looks more of a giant oversized baby than Jimmy. He was unfunny and creepy, touching the female members of the audience to the point where it was molestation. The girls would give him weird looks and the husbands a deep glare. At one point, he ran around handing out tickets to some X-Games thing and he singled out the hotties. Sadly, I bet that gets him laid all the time. I hope he already has AIDS. Kimmel himself was interesting. He's all smiles with the cameras and when it goes to break, he remains pretty motionless at his desk, which is barely lit. He would either bite at his nails or peruse Jimmy's book. When they cut to clips, he focuses intensely on the monitors with a weird toothy smile. I couldn't tell if it was fake or just how he always holds his mouth. Still, a good performer. Forgetting the guests, Jimmy came on and shined. His opening jokes were the best, getting the most laughter with the 15-year-old line. I don't think he got the applause he'd of liked for the closer, but I felt he did a pretty good job, considering the crowd was a bunch of brain-dead egotisical fuckwads. God I hate LA. Seriously, though, good set, I was quite entertained. When the cameras were off between his act and when he sat on the couch, he and Kimmel were very conversational, sharing a few laughs. At one point that Implants chick said something to him, I think complimentary of his act, and he said thanks and went back to the man of the show. After the show, I made my way out back and was the only one waiting for him to sign my book. I had to stand in a dark alley with four obese autograph hounds constantly screaming "KATEE! OVER HERE, KATEE!" whenever a blonde exited the back. I feared for my life. About 45 minutes later, Jimmy and Kenny emerged and made their way over to the dank corner where multiple ***** must've occurred in the past. Kenny was a real cool dude, very nice, conversational, and he was incredibly complimentary of my contribution to the show. Sadly for me, Jimmy was preoccupied on his cell phone, but he was kind enough to sign my book and say some nice words. I wish I had more of an opportunity to chat, but it seemed important. I have to thank him for being cool enough to come outside and risk a shivving just to sign my book. Thank you very much, James! So yea, of course, Jimmy and Kenny were the only bright spots of my evening. Thanks for saving it, guys. Thank Allah I didn't pay $5,000 like that old hag in the front row.
