If you continue telling essentially the same joke ad infinitum ... you might be a really bad comedian!
Why is this the show to which I’m most looking forward Sunday? Because Jeff Foxworthy deserves to be reamed in the ass by much better, non-redneck comedians like Nick DiPaulo, Gilbert Gottfried, Jay Mohr, Denis Leary and Colin Quinn. If only Triumph were lurking about!
And Lord? Please let Larry the Cable Guy say “Git’er done!” for the millionth fucking time. Gets funnier every time I hear it.
10 p.m. Sunday. Comedy Central.

according to Comedy Central's site, they're going to show this roast unedited on Saturday night as a part of the Secret Stash. Nice to see they've taking a break from South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut and Jay and Silent Bob Stroke Back to show something different. Hopefully this roast will get released on DVD like the Denis Leary one did

has been trying so hard to milk the middle-America/redneck cash, but it's understandable. They must be getting ridiculous ratings for that garbage.

I live in Texas, and people here think this shit is the funniest thing that ever happened, ever. So much as to have big fucking decals that cover the entirety of their rear windows with "Git R Dun!" I think a law should be passed where it's legal to shoot those fuckers if you see them riding around, and thus their potential for bringing new and inbred life into this world is marginalized.

Anyone see this? Was it any good? Intersted because I didn't even know it happened. On the subject of Jeff Foxworthy, he reminds me of Ray Jay Johnson: the infinite nuances and subtle complexities of taking a single joke and driving it into the fucking ground.

thinking perhaps it was MadTV, then I realized it was worse than MadTV's ever been. That's when a graphic came up saying iyt was that Blue Collar TV show. Those guys stand up is fairly good. Esp. if you've ever been poor, have been to the south, or know guys like just like that. But that Blue Collar Tv show is some of the shittiest stuff broadcast. I guess they had to have performers that made the comedians look like real actors by comparision. They blow ass.

Once again, this aint cool news.
DiPaolo, Giraldo and Quinn (and Vos, Norton, and Patrice O'Neal) should just roast each other. Now THAT would be funny. ...God I miss Tough Crowd...

The WB really wanted to work with John Wells, the Exec Producer of ER, The West Wing, Third Watch, etc. So they dumped their old vampire soap opera for a newer one. It didn't work out so well as did som e other high profile projects (Fearless comes to mind). But the chimp that decided that was kicked the hell out the door. He was also the guy that okayed Blue Collar Tv and the Drew Carey Green Screen show that will likely show up on ABC Family if anywhere at all.

It's so easy to hate on the Blue Collar guys, but the fact of the matter is they have millions of fans across the country, myself included. And before you ask, no, I am not a hilbilly or a redneck... just a 20 year old college student from Minnesota. I guess people find it easy to write these guys off because for the most part they manage to do their comedy obscenity-free. But the fact remains... it's funny. It's funny because these guys are simple and honest, and they do the kind of storytelling comedy that, for some reason, seemed to have gone out of style until recently. Yes, I'll agree that Larry's "Git-R-Done" is a little irritating, but his act is consistently hilarious, and if you don't think that he's just created a stage character as the dumb hilbilly, then you're pretty naiive. Anyway that's enough of my rant... i for one will be tuning in tonight and laughing my butt off.

I can understand not liking Jeff Foxworthy, but to prefer Colin Quinn to him? Colin Quinn is probably the most worthless, unfunny, annoying "comedian" to ever grace Comedy Central. Has he ever been able to tell a single joke correctly? At least "You might be a redneck" was once funny a long, long time ago. Quinn has yet to deliver a joke worth remembering. Both his delivery and his material are awful. Foxworthy, at least, has good timing even if his material is stale.

...you can take a talkback about Jeff Foxworthy and spark a debate on the merits of the Star Wars prequels. ............... if you've ever typed "...has a beer and cheats on his wife", you might be a Talkbacker, ............. if George Lucas has ever raped your childhood ..............., if The Matrix owned yor ASS ........... if you've even heard of Firefly or Wonderfalls ......... Blah, blah, blah .................. I don't care about the other three (Foxworthy, Engvall, or Larry), but Ron White is funny as Hell. If he weren't lumped in with the others, he wouldn't be considered so much a genre comedian as just a comedian. I'd rather just watch an hour of his standup.

The Dave Chappelle show, one of the biggest shows of the last years, yet AICN ignores it? Why is that? Too UN-PC for ya.

...and I gotta say, when Jeff Foxworthy is the funniest part of his own roast, that's just a damn shame. Did they actually have to explain the notion of a roast to the Blue Collar guys 5 minutes before the show? Did Comedy Central drop the Friars from the Roast, because it seems like the quality of comedians on these things has gone waaay down, like it's a non-union shop or something. I think they have to bring the Friars back, the last couple of roasts have looked like cheap knockoffs. On a sidenote, Colin Quinn looks like a complete mess since the cancellation of Tough Crowd.
March 21, 2005, 9:03 a.m. CST
you expect to eat Jeff Foxworthy at a Jeff Foxworthy Roast.
March 21, 2005, 9:08 a.m. CST
...but I still think Foxworthy is better than most of you seem to give him credit for. So the guy's not hilarious every single time. He still is good for a few chuckles, at least, and he does it without being dirty. I love dirty humor as much as the next guy, but it's still nice to be able to tune in somewhere if I'm not in the mood for "South Park"-style jokes. As far as I'm concerned, he's okay.
March 21, 2005, 9:41 a.m. CST
Obviously the spoiler warning was to let you know that Larry was going to say 'Get-R-Done'. I mean, who would expect that? I look forward to this as much as I did the Wanda Sykes show they crammed down our throats. Please CC, please make some shows with some actual intelligence. The reason the Daily show and even South Park do well is because they work on different levels. "South Park?" you say. Sure, Turd vs Douche, Passion of the Cartman.

Let's not confuse the Friar's Club Roast with a generic roast on Comedy Central. A Friar's Club roast is a great honor, black tie event, the pinnacle of one's career, where one is both embraced and shredded to bits by their peers. A Comedy Central roast is just a TV special.

I just don't get the total NECK vibe from him. Not like Larry The Cable Guy, he's his own Granpappy. Of the Stand-up-->Sitcom boom of the 90's, you'd think this guy would have an outhouse niche all-permanent-like, but no -he needed a Clampet-style NECK administration to pave the way for his sorta thang.
March 21, 2005, 3 p.m. CST
Herc? What or who are you smoking? Two words I never want to see on AintItLameNews are Jeff Foxworthy... This just in: IT'S OFFICIAL, YOU SUCK! GFY GFY GFY GFY GFY GFY

Better dead than Redneck, but that Ron White's "Drunk in Public" act is funny as hell. I cut my stand up teeth on Steve Martin, Bill Cosby, Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Redd Foxx, Sam Kinison and esp. Bill Hicks albums. I have a pretty good feel for what is funny. The Cable Idiot is not funny. Bill Engval is mildy amusing. Foxworthy is chuckle-worthy when he steers clear of the overtly redneck material (he has a nice take on family life, but the redneck thing is soooo last-millenium). But that Ron White...he makes me spit milk out my nose.

Remember that the South is a huge area. Necks live in moutains, hills, swamps, suburbs, farmland, and on the coast. A neck from Atalanta is a great deal more "sophistcated" than a neck from Cut N' Shoot, TX (yes, it's a real town). And by sophisticated I mean that the Atlanta Neck has seen a shower. Basically, the Larry the Cable Guy character is a giddy, southern retard. Foxworthy and that gay looking Bill Ingval a more like a typical, everyday neck.
March 21, 2005, 7:06 p.m. CST
....he did it so you guys can bitch and moan about how much you hate southners without really making any effort to get know them. And Larry The Cable Guy IS funny (I actually took the time to watch his stand up, without immediately passing judgment on his redneck roots.) Ron White and Larry are friggen hilarious, its the other two guys they got stuck with who are unfunny.

No southern redneck would drink Rolling Rock beer. However, the show was sponsered by Rolling Rock.
