What makes me laugh ... (part 1)2:55:00 PMPaul Clemente
Not to start this post off as an attention seeking plea on your sensibility, but I have been in need of laughter for the last week or so. Ian has been kind enough to take the helms of most of CxNx while I get everything back in working order in my life. Maybe I'm phoning this one in, but I think by putting down what makes me laugh (everytime) it may give you a bit of insight on how my brain works, and where my humor comes from.
1. Tom Green at Joker's Wild
Say what you want about Tom Green, but I was (and still am) a huge fan of his. Maybe a career self saboteur, Tom always did what was funny to him and his friends. It wasn't until the twilight of his Mtv stint where everything seemed forced, and fame came to him too intensely, and prematurely. This was a skit he did at a comedy club with a concealed camera capturing every glorious minute of this hilarious performance.
4. Trigger Happy TV
What now has become an obscure find, Trigger Happy TV was a hidden camera prank show with tons of visual humor, animal costumes, and pretty amazing music attached to the background of it all. Dom Jolly was the mastermind of this barrage of uncomfortable public insanity, which included a man screaming on the phone which trans-mutated into a catchphrase of a loud "HELLO!" . There are dozens of other skits, and brilliant pranks on the show, but the over-sized cell phone, and the "HELLO!" catchphrase cracks me up everytime.
