I think when you're doing stand up the insinuation is "these are my thoughts". When you're on a show its just a free for all of discussion. No premeditation.
Recalling something funny that you have in your mind on a conversational show is totally fair.
I suppose unless an entire bit was made out of it. Which it doesn't sound like was the case.

In my opinion.....

This would be the only way I'd ever be comfortable being on any show.



TV writers have assistants. And a lot of times they eventually become actual writers, but before they do, all of their ideas get assimilated into the final product they don't get credit for. Oh, except for the credit they get, as a writer's assistant, in the credits.

Agreed.

HOWEVER...

In most work places when you do more work; you get more compensation. It's a tricky thing for Keith and Chemda to gauge cuz their work is dealing in ideas. How the fuck do you figure out how much to pay Danny when there's no real tangible evidence of his work? I feel for both sides because this sounds complicated.

Danny should definitely get a new title. He's constantly pulled onto the mic for KATG shows. Often 'writing in from the couch' and was a huge part of the last Marathon. This ep was perfect for this very discussion. I think Frank made some brilliant suggestions.

I feel for Danny. I don't think Keith fully understands how intimidating he is. Or how detrimental that 'elephant memory' of his can be. No doubt Keith is gonna torture Danny with, "Is it ok with you I said that? Any jokes stolen today???" Ad nauseam for the next year or two.

As a fan I'm endlessly impressed with how funny Keith is. But when it comes to him understanding things he doesn't agree with; I'm shocked with how impossible he can be. Chemda said something so simple, yet so telling. "Keith. You and Danny are two different people."

I hope Keith follows Chemda's lead on this one. He sounds hurt and maybe not fully understanding who Danny is, nor what it is he is saying.

let's frame this in a more positive light.

they prep for the show. they talk about the topics beforehand. if there's a consistency being built of using Danny's ideas, a promotion and title seems warranted and appropriate. he's doing a good job! his boss is pleased in his performance.

Keith, nobody's attacking you. downshift.

Danny, advocate for yourself. take the title, stick in your cap, and use it to fuel your dreams. this is a win for you.

Chemda, more shoulder. also, thank you for being open about blindingly making your way as a boss lady. ordering cars and growing your subordinates, whaddup.

You mean when Keith ACKNOWLEDGED WHEN SOMETHING WAS FROM DANNY.

Yeah, really, this is probably the most credit anyone who has contributed to a show has ever gotten.

You haven't been listening. Count how many times Keith says another show is funny, you're blinded by the Keithness.

It's true. Keith and I have never disagreed on anything.
