The Mighty Tig. Shakespeare (a fag) said “Brevity is the soul of wit”. Tig embodies this. Not a wasted syllable. When new comics ask me for advice (this doesn’t happen) I say “Watch Tig.” She’s a zen master. I want to be like her. Also, this clip is a pretty sublime example of turning the “lead” of a painful experience into the “gold” of a joke that can help heal the world, one audience member at a time.
I’ve only recently started watching Brendon. He’s one of those people who has funny like a disease. But a good disease, the kind that you want to get from him by letting him fuck you. He’s probably a miserable person, based on all the horrible stuff he talks about, but I don’t care, because he’s so funny. I hope he lives to see 40.
I was doing shows at the Joke Joint in Minneapolis and a comic said “Look at this shit” and showed me this clip. But I loved it. Not ironically, either. Watching it makes me happy. Never in 42,000 years would I do a joke like this, but I’m glad this guy did. I have watched this clip far more than any other on Housetop Comedy, or whatever this “website” is called.
This guy, holy shit. What a tidal wave of brilliance. Comedy is art, absolutely, but you might not always think of it that way. Even a fucking stupid idiot from Planet Shitbrain would watch this guy and say “Oh, an artist!” then piss on themselves and run over a cop on their Segway specially designed for very fat people.
A genius at the height of her powers. A fearless warrior. Maria demonstrates that you can go anywhere and make anything funny. Watching her is like going to school, if school were fun and felt like having waves gently crash on you on a beach in Tahiti. Maria is hilarious, to be sure, but her comedy is so good it’s literally Important.
