I'm glad I didn't go to the Tampa tryouts. They only took one person from Tampa to go to the semi finals and it was Jim Norton...I was really surprised by some of those picks they made to go to the finals, especially that large Jessica girl that just screams all the time. Also couldn't believe they took the woman from the married couple, she just wasnt funny.

It's pretty obvious that 3 or 4 of the spots in the house will go to the established comics like Norton and Todd Glass even though they're not that funny. I'm really rooting for that caveman looking dude, he's funny as hell.

I agree. From what they showed, Tom Cottle (The husband) was a lot funnier than his wife was.

What a shit show. I was hoping to like the second season as much as the first, but other than Norton and Glass, no one else made it that I thought was funny. Hopefully there are more auditions to come, although if not, this could be a very short season.

Yep. Because of him, there was a small mention in the credits that "judges may've previously known contestant's work". (In this case, Quinn & Norton. I imagine they were also somewhat, if not very, familiar with Durst & Madigan)

Kathleen Madigan was a gimme. Expect her to get into the house. I remember her doing HBO half hour comedy specials 15 years ago.

Frankly, I'm shocked that Norton made it & Will Durst didn't. I've been a fan of Durst's for years. I can't stand Norton, but that might have to do with my general hatred of "Tough Crowd".

I find it amusing that at least two of the Vegas judges (Drew Carey & Brett Butler) are has-been sitcom stars. Kinda gives an iffy omen of the winner's future, eh?

I'm picking Sue Costello to win the whole shebang.

I didn't watch it but...NORTON is in the house? WHOO-HOO! I love Jim Norton. He was usually gold on the Opie and Anthony show, and unlike Da Madman, I love Tough Crowd and Jim's involvement. I'll have to catch the 200 reruns on Comedy Central over this weekend.

He's not in the house yet, although he's pretty much a gimme. They have 20 contestants left that will be taken down to 10 after next weeks ep.

Does anyone else think that Monty, the bald old guy looks like and sounds almost exactly like Carl from Aqua teen hungre force? Does he do the voice?

I missed yesterday's episode, but saw Tuesday's. BUT, I was really impressed by the dude that followed them from city to city for the tryouts (his name escapes me now). He wasn't awful, he wasn't great, but he really wanted it. He also seemed to carry himself well. If preserverance and stage presence count, I like his chances in the future. He would be handicapped by his gangly "Carrot Top" like appearance though.

Ah, yes. The Buck Star show. You had to admire how tenacious the kid was.

Who was the chick that did the frieking LAME ASS wedding routine? Did she really think that shit would fly outside of a gay club? I mean, it was just HORRIBLE.

Tammy Pascatelli is hilarious whenever she is on Bob And Tom. I hope she makes it to the house. The stripper chick sucked balls too. I hate female comics that make jokes and then sit and smile, as if they are waiting for us to "get it" God she was horrible.

THe screaming chick was annoying, but the bit she did about the kid going MOMMYMOMMYMOMMYMOMMYMOMMY was funny.

The caveman guy was fun, but not sure how long he will last.
I like this season far more than last, simply due to the abscence of Ralphie. That fucker was just plain unfunny.

The Iranian guy might be really funny to.

Yeah, but I believe the mention in the credits also said something to the effect of the judges and producers were in contact with the agents of the comedians, as well. I think it also said that judges could judge on their previous experience with the comics.

People are saying that the fix is in, and in a future version of the show, two judges walk out, declaring a fix because a comic totally bombed, yet wasn't eliminated.

I don't care about the reality stuff. I just want to see guys on stage telling jokes.

Buck Star's big problem was no material. But he said the callback was only his, what, ninth show? He's got time to work on it.

Missed the cut-down to 20, but it'll be eeeeeenteresting to see if any of Jim Norton's habits make the show, should he get in the house.

And it wouldn't surprise me if the show was fixed... I thought I also saw during the first ep's credits that the producers made some picks instead of the judges. Dunno if anyone else caught THAT part.

Jay Mohr was on Bob and Tom the other day, talking about the contreversy and he said that Brett Butler and Drew Carey left because the one guy bombed and was not cut. He said that the producers and NBC has always had final say in who gets kept and who gets cut. I found it interesting that he said of the 10 that makes the house, only 7 were chosen by the judges. The rest were put in by NBC.

I've seen Pablo Francisco a few times and have thought he was hilarious. So I was pulling for him to make it but he didn't, I also liked the guy who talked about how his dad was more scared of the boogey man that he was. Now that I think about it most of the people I liked were cut.

The caveman was funny the first time, but it's not something I think is going to be good if you've seen him before.

I think i'm pulling for Dan Ahdoot out of the remaining 20.

I saw Pablo, just by chance, 9 years ago as the opening act at the Improv - and he was by far the funniest act on the bill. Just tore the house down. Sad part is, he's still doing the same "Arnold as the tortilla saleman"...

Semi on topic but what did you guys think of the results of last year? I though Dat Phan was OK, but he kinda only had one bit and that was making fun of his mom. I do like Rich Voss, but I do agree Ralphie Mae wasn't that good.

I saw the big Italian guy from Boston doing local shows when I lived back in those parts about 14-15 years ago. He's pretty funny. That one old guy with the long hair and "did you poop?" hat sounds like the host of a late night AM radio talk show.
I've seen a DVD that Pablo Francisco is shopping around for distribution. OK, but nothing groundbreaking. I think Dave Chapelle has raised the bar so high that compared to him, no one seems that funny anymore.
I think that at least some of these people got picked for these initial rounds more to see how they would interact and possibly affect the chemistry in "The House" more than their actual comedic talent. Some of the ones who didn't get picked actually had me laughing out loud the hardest.

She was so awful. Then she has the sack to blame the audience for not thinking it was funny.

Speaking of female comics, is it me or do all guys find like 90% of female standup comics unfunny?

after watching season 1 with Vos in the house, and hearing that Norton, Francisco and others have tried out, i wonder why LCS doesn't set some sort of guideline for the selection process.

i always thought that the show's premise was for unknown comics to get discovered, but this is the second year that people who have had their own specials on comedy central (Vos, Francisco) or have been on CC shows (Norton) have tried out. doesn't the winner get a 1 hour slot on the channel amongst other things? for the above three, that doesn't seem like a valued prize. to go along with how they are casting, i wouldn't be surprised if Elaine boosler or Kevin Meany auditioned.

while i know that not everyone has heard of Vos, Norton, etc. it just seems odd that the show picks people who are already known somewhat instead of picking unknowns, or underground comics.

I was so shocked that the small town cop didn't make yet Tony Sorprano's sister with the kid voices did? Me and my wife was like WTF! I thought the black woman who said they should make a show called Who wants to marry this bitch? Was the funniest woman. I couldn't believe she didn't get picked. And my mouth hit the floor when she said she was 41. I thought she was mid twenties. I hope she doesn't quit comedy, she could make it. I was also a little disappointed that the russian kid didn't make it but he has plenty of time to make it.
