So fuckin' fun!

As per usual Mike Lawrence was amazing that crowd interaction was just beautiful, but then Katharine Heller showed up and just blew it out of the water.

Viewed, enjoyed and voted.

I like the secret voting this year. I voted for a person whose performance was better than their performance last year. ;)

I guess, technically, that could mean me buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut... hmmm

For anyone else who might be confused about how this is supposed to work, I made a helpful graphic.

Vote for Hookers and Blow 2014!

That's impossible, I didn't compete last year. :D

I have listened.
I have laughed.
I have debated.
I gotta give this to Katharine (sorry Matteo).

*pause to wait for stern stare and VIP tech issues from Michael Kahlili*

ghauck 06-06-2014 05:06 PM

Dear KATG, thank you. Thank you for turning 40 minutes of a dismal raining Friday into belly laughs, smiles, giggles and cringe worthy insults among guests.

VIP is like having endless surprise parties, just when you least expected it BAM!

Special shout out to Katharine’s ‘So I Married and Axe Murder’ coffee shop infused poetry. It was fuckin brilliant.
--
If Danny first got his part,
By showing his dick in the start

That means to continue will depend,
On continued pictures of parts to be send

Until eventually one of his heart goes to all
And finally we say! A parts that’s not three sizes to small!

Katharine came in second for me. She was great.

Bucho 06-07-2014 09:02 PM

Myq [6/10] Not preparing, as a bit, is pretty played out, so if you're going to play it you better nail the eff out of it and Myq doesn't really get there. The mirroring of Keith's best offs concept is solid though, and Myq's always a magnetic stage presence, so even when he doesn't kill he's good to watch.

Micah [6/10] I love him and the character was a fun idea but the Keith joke didn't land and the Chemda stuff wasn't funny enough to override the creepiness. I did like the intentional(?) use of the 2 min cut-off for comedic effect though.

Chris [7/10] He's very enjoyable to watch/hear, and what we heard of his material was stronger than either of the previous comics, but the KATG element was barely connected and his pacing was a little slow, which only made the cut off even more frustrating.

Michael [8/10] The fact he wasn't the smoothest actually worked well with the concept and every time he took one of those asides it delighted me. Bummer about the cut off but he gets a bonus point for not being a pro and for his promo efforts on KATG this week.

Mike [9/10] What a goddamn pro. Perfect pacing, perfect timing, perfect beard. Would have been a 10 but a couple of the punchlines were just a touch soft. Just a touch though.

Mike & Brandon [7/10] Very fun energy but as a racist I've never seen a Tyler Perry movie so the references flew over my head. If there had been an attempt at a Keith impression that wouldn't have mattered as much, but as it was the concept didn't fly. Some nice jokes though, and even with the cut off the final line worked.

Katherine [7/10] I hate comedic poetry but I love her so this was oddly uncomfortable to listen to. Also, her face is so nice to look at but the dark glasses hurt her stage presence so this was oddly uncomfortable to watch. Tough to score.

Danny [8/10] Kissing Keith on the cheeks was hilarious but his salvo of opening burns on Mike didn't land for me, which felt odd since Mean Danny is usually one of my favourite things. But then his angle on JFOD was great and his burns on Liam, Victor and Andrea were perfect. He fucked himself with the cut off though.

Emily [7/10] What the eff with that dress focusing all the visual energy between her legs? How is that even fair? On the plus side her delivery is magnetic and her material was very fun.

Matteo [6/10] Seemed underprepared and started half-assedly but eventually got me on board with that ridiculous "note", and mad kudos by the way to whoever cut the video so that it went to that wide shot of someone walking by (with antlers?) in the middle of it, giving it a visual punchline to go with the aural one.

Andrea [8/10] Of all on the night this was maybe the strongest, most confident performance from start to finish. She has killer stage presence, the extra prep to bring in the audio and play off it physically paid off beautifully and even if her burn on Ray wasn't a total bullseye her energy sold it well. If it hadn't been for her missing the cut off she'd have a 9 and be challenging Mike for first place.

Myka [8/10] What a killer. Not everything landed but even for those that didn't her magnificent ballsiness carried the momentum over until the next one did.

JFOD [7/10] He has the most natural stage charisma of anyone who was there that night but the material was barely KATG-connected and not as strong as the best of the bunch.

Chemda [Aces10] Love her to bits.

Keith [Aces10] Best host ever did.

Thanks but it sounds like you voted for Mike. Is that correct or did I mistakenly cancel your VIP?

WittyReference 06-09-2014 12:05 AM

I voted for Michael before he started this campaign and the contrarian in me now kinda wishes I didn't. Like how I never want to hit like when someone on facebook says hit like. But he was the most consistently funny across the whole 2 mins so he deserved it.

Every time you do something in this style, it's interesting to see how some people interpret "Roast" as spitefully bringing up any grievances rather then a good natured ribbing.

That's totes true of roasts but this wasn't a "Roast" bro, it was just
Do KATG-Themed Stand-up". Spitefully grievancing is totes fair game.

Loved it! Michael was fuckin great! You can vote for yourself for me.

2014 KATG Stand-Up-Athon
 
Michael for some reason I cannot download any VIP shows from the podcast app on iOS all weekend. Is this a poor coincidence? LMAO I swear you can reset my vote!

Thumbnail 06-10-2014 03:13 AM

The good news is that I voted for someone named Michael so please don't kick me out of VIP.

I love Katherine but, much like Bucho, I hate slam/ comedy poetry. She was so well prepared that I really regret giving my vote to Mike Lawrence.

I don't think I could enjoy the slam / comedy poetry for an hour either but I was super impressed by the preparation and the hilariousness for the 2 minutes format

As much as I would like to wield my powers in code, I actually didn't change your account. Marisela is going to contact you and help you fix the problem.

There's only one person named "Michael" in the list. There are people named Myq, Micah and Mike but only one Michael. Shall I correct your vote for you?

Your campaign is so damn funny that you SHOULD.

But seriously, don't.

Love you.

Seriously.

Scumhook 06-10-2014 11:26 PM

This was a tough one. I had to decide between the Michael named Katharine, the Michael named Danny, and the Michael named Emily.

I ended up going with the one that made me laugh the hardest, which was Emily. I'm still laughing about her monologue bit where she's not allowed to talk while Danny hammers away.

The divine Ms spk and mean Danny were a fucking close second, not that that counts for shit.

Is Emily Lubin TAFKAP on forums?

Sparrow 06-16-2014 10:56 AM

nope.

Keith 06-16-2014 11:45 AM

yes.

Sparrow 06-16-2014 11:46 AM

way to look out, bro. you owe her an apology danish for the PMs she's likely already received.

Keith 06-16-2014 11:51 AM

That yes was to something else. I meant no.

Sparrow 06-16-2014 11:59 AM

apology danish? i meant friend pastry. nothing to see here.

J. Canines 06-16-2014 12:36 PM

I only know emily as the attractive intern. Apparently shes only recently begun stand up so im wondering what noob has the ability to make that sick bastard Scum cicle laugh.

he has discerning taste. Ill prolly listen to hers first when I re up thee ol vip

knowing nothing yet I must say that michael and comedy outliers have made the strongest case for their respective votees...

...but not unlike voting 3rd party canidates like the green party, does one waste their vote or try to make a difference .? Vote w heart or try and unseat the mighty K Heller??

Votings harrrrrrrrrd

She actually prepared material, which immediately put her ahead of half the pack.

Understated delivery, and I thought her timing was spot on. Yeah, the material wasn't revolutionary, but for me it played on the mess that is Danny. He's an integral part of KATG, which is also what the show was about.

Vote with your heart, you fucking cunt. Anything else is offensive and an arseraping of the system.

Katharine did a fucking awesome job. It was only the fact that I'm not a huge fan of that style of poetry that stopped me laughing hard at her, and consequently tipped my vote to Emily.

andywebs 06-17-2014 10:46 PM

Double Pity Vote!
 
I am very glad I waited to vote for Andrea. Andrea sleeping with Danny? 2 birds 1 stone.

1.) Vote for a great performance: I had narrowed it down to her, myka, and Mike L
2.) Help Danny - Danny is great, and if she wins, I can't wait to see his conundrum of asking her to pay up or not.

My vote for Andrea is like a TTSWD awkwardness kickstarter.

Scumhook 06-18-2014 01:37 AM

I voted for MJG.

I'm not sure how - it just happened.
