Is it time to let Michael Richards out of the doghouse?

Good ol' Jerry, trying to polish up Michael's image. As shocking and unfortunate as his outburst at the comedy show was, I found it difficult to be outraged by it the way members of the media seemed to be. Michael Richards always struck me as a pretty likable guy and not like someone who's truly filled with hate.

I could totally relate to Michael Richards. I'm not even a racist, and I yell at black people all the time.

 I have no opinion one way or the other, really. Comedians often say stuff they shouldn't - that's partly why they're funny.

I used to think that about Sam Kinison. I downloaded a couple of his albums last year and gave them a listen with a fresher, adult perspective. The guy's just no funny to me anymore. I listened to about two hours' worth of material, and I think I chuckled twice. He's supposed to be famous for unashamedly saying "what people are really thinking," but he's certainly not saying what I'm really thinking. Louis C. K. is a lot better at that, in my opinion. Not only does he do a decent job of saying what I feel people are really thinking, but I give him bonus points for making me laugh when he says it.

I'm sure some of it is the generation gap. Times are different, and modern topical humor is going to play better than topical humor from decades back. Even some of the material Kinison does that should be timeless falls flat for me. Bill Cosby, Bob Newhart, Nichols and May, and Shelly Berman make me laugh with material almost thirty years older than Kinison's.

In hindsight, Kinison comes across more like an ignorant, louder Bill Hicks--though Hicks's stuff still hold up for me. It's often not all that funny, but it at least holds my interest.

Kinison has a bit on condoms ("Rubber Love") and a pro-drunk driving bit that really make him come across as a moron. The latter one especially, considering how he died.

You'd think the least palatable bit about the condom routine would be the gleeful homophobia, but it turns out it's the suggestion that he's ever stuck his cock in another human. It doesn't help matters that I can't help but picture him doing it while wearing that stupid beret/trench coat combo.

 Recently over here, a Premier League footballer got in trouble and banned for several games for calling another Premier League footballer a "Black Bastard" during a game.

The player on the receiving end was being a bastard, had just said something bastardish to the player who got in trouble, and was black.

Does this mean that Goiter could get banned for calling me an English Wanker?

The video crashed on me about a minute in.

I sure hope Michael Richards hasn't turned into one of those bitter old funny guys (Chevy Chase). Jerry has seemed to keep a good perspective on things. He isn't necessarily funny anymore, but he's not a giant asshole either (Chevy Chase).

A black guy in my wife's facebook account got fired on his day off from work.

Well, we know they're not making movies. Rodriguez and del Toro attach their names to ten a year and only manage to make one a piece every five.

 I never thought Kinison was funny, but clearly someone did.

I admit that I've paid almost zero attention to Louis C. K. I hear he's funny.

The first time I saw Kinison was on a Rodney Dangerfield HBO special where they had a whole mess of new comics, and I thought he was hilarious. He had this bit where instead of sending food and money and aid to starving countries like Ethiopia, we send one guy over there and tell them not to live in a desert.

The next time I saw him, it was a huge disappointment. I don't remember too much funny stuff from him after that, though his guest appearance on Married With Children was ok.

Spacey, I forgot to thank you for directing my attention to "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee." I've only watched four of them so far, but they've all been enjoyable.

Thanks!

You're welcome!  The world could use more Jerry Seinfeld right now.

I just watched the episode with Colin Quinn. It really only gets funny after Mario Joyner comes in.

You'll not see nothing like the Colin Quinn.
