Only got to watch the second half of the show - the elimination performances. Glad to finally see more material from everybody (sans Marcus), but I was kind of disappointed. I've heard funnier stuff from almost all of them. I mean, last night made me miss God's Pottery.
Funniest - Jeff Dye, Louis Ramey, and Jim Tavare Eh - Iliza Schlesinger, Ron G, and Adam Hunter.
What the hell was with Sean Cullen's song? Love the facial expressions, but I don't think this is what you bust out when going for votes.

This was my first time watching the show, but I have been a fan of Cullen for a while. You might remember him as one of the 3 guys in Corky and the Juice Pigs. They were on MadTv alot in the 90s. You might remember one of their hits that they preformed on the show, "I'm the only gay eskimo (in my tribe)." Click Here (youtube.com)
From his solo stand-up, he had a Comedy Central special and I remember one of his odder songs "Thank you for the porn." Oddly enough, the only clip I can find of the song is from LCS. Click Here (youtube.com)
I liked Louis and Iliza. Jim Tavare is growing on me. Adam Hunter was OK. Sean Cullen wasn't great, and Jeff and Ron G didn't make me laugh at all. Ron G hasn't made me laugh at all.
The main challenge was to write a bedtime story and read it to the girls from The Girls Next Door--the comic was given a title. Marcus turned it into a movie trailer and did a lot of his impressions, which is what won him the challenge. He was funny; the others pretty much were not.
Don't like how much they're rushing this. Next week is the final competition, so I guess they're dropping three this time and four next week. Yow. Obviously they have to finish it before the Olympics, but there had to be a better way (cutting the auditions a bit more would have helped).
The one interesting thing about this could be that this could be the story that would've been told in the Ultimate Comics if Peter hadn't died. Fury had asked the Ultimates to help train Peter. Who knows where this show will lead.
