Big Lob has no love interest. Big Lob never will have no love interest. Big Lob is all business. he shakes his head at the whole Duke/Scarlet thing. If you give Big Lob a love interest, it is no longer Big Lob.

Maybe 'they' could make him the CBS version of Jay Leno so I can see him every night. Boy oh boy do I love Seth Rogan. And Jonah Hill as well. I like anything that I momentarily found to be amusing to be run into the ground, which is why I'm such a huge fan of Kevin Smith and Austin Powers movies. "YEAH BABY!"

stealing jokes, a bad reality series with three comics no one can remember, bragging about all the places he's had sex. i mean it's nice of Aziz to be graceful about it, but fuck Dane Cook forever for ripping Louis CK.

Because the whole fuckin' cast is jewish. I think even the key grip is jewish. the Closed Captioning is in Hebrew. I hate Adam Sandler, Rob Schnieder, Set Rogen, Jonah Hill, Judd Apatow, Jason Segel, Andy Samberg, Seth Green, Mila Kunis, Alex bornstien, Ben Stiller, Michael Ian Black, Lewis Black, John (Iwant to kill him) Stewart, and every other frickin' jew they stuff into this ridiculous movie!

I'm a fan
July 29, 2009, 1:03 a.m. CST
I hate Adam Sandler movies. <p> Oh and now we are adding Seth Rogen into the mix? Wow it's the perfect recipe for Utter Fail.

I want my 5 minutes back! Drunks will laugh at anything. Ohhh he said pussy. Pussy underwater for ball azz playa's. When will this ig'nt speak fucking die the fuck off? Ebonics needs to catch aids.

Just because you know the trappings of viral marketing (secret websites, alternate reality video clips, astroturf reviews) doesn't mean you have a good product. <p> This looks like utter shit.

...what's wrong with satire today. Inventing a stand up comedian who makes bad jokes, just to show that there are other stand up comedians who make bad jokes is neither smart or funny. Same with these strange Adam Sandler teasers, where he plays a mermaid or a baby. <br> You are not satirizing it, you are doing the same! And to know that it's bad, doesn't make it funny.

Hilarious. It's so fucking retarded and that's the point and it's hilarious. If you don't like it go fuck some pancakes.

and I think Randy is a very funny character. He's not making fun of other comedians so much as he is making fun of the culture that supports the work of people like Kat Williams and Dane Cooke. The people who lower the common denominator. It's sort of cerebral in its stupidity because it forces you to question why you're laughing at it, but you're still laughing.
July 29, 2009, 4:27 a.m. CST
and it's awesome-- it IS nuanced in its levels of performance. One of the funniest things I've seen associated with Apatow, ever.<p> Also, Seth Rogen sucks.
July 29, 2009, 4:51 a.m. CST
he hates australians. "im gonna count to ten"
July 29, 2009, 6:55 a.m. CST
Don't compare old P.G. to this guy, just because they share the element of parody.

the DJ cracks me up... "I was a dental hygenist...TRYIN' TO GET YA TEETH CLEANED!!!"
July 29, 2009, 7:46 a.m. CST
That Randy is based on...although I could see Katt Williams too. In at least one of the viral videos I've seen "Randy" mentions Facebook, finding him on Facebook and how many friends he has. Also there's a bit in the fake documentary where he talks about doing stand up for about 2 months and really struggling and paying his dues. Also clearly a dig on Cook. But then there's the dancing and yelling and sex stuff, that's more Katt Williams.
July 29, 2009, 7:54 a.m. CST
I want a documentary on Randy's DJ. The part in the studio was the best of all three parts!!
July 29, 2009, 8:05 a.m. CST
Setting off Randy's lame jokes with the fucking Reggaeton horns... genius.<p><p>I haven't seen anything in the Funny People trailer that makes me want to see the movie, the fucking stale super lame Harry Potter joke at the end of the commercial hurts every time.<p> Human Giant, however, is fucking GREAT and was one of the only good things to air on MTV in years. I got the first season on dvd for dirt cheap.

...the official point where indie comedy hit the fucking wall.
July 29, 2009, 8:12 a.m. CST
From Aziz for people to really get it. We were watching that crap on Comedy Central and besides everyone sitting around congratulating how great they were. Aziz's Randy was the only actually funny stand up. But the rest of the crew talking about how they don't even see Aziz anymore, like its some Peter Sellers amazing character difference is just ludicrous.
July 29, 2009, 8:14 a.m. CST
Looks funny. Don't get the Seth Rogan hate either, he's in like 2 movies a year, 3 maybe? So that's 49 other weeks with no new Rogan movies. I'm not a big fan or whatever, but he doesn't bother me.
July 29, 2009, 8:25 a.m. CST
tryin to get ya teeth cleaned! was funny. i watched the documentaries yesterday, and to hear aziz today describe it as soulja boy doing stand up is perfect. i think its funny, not genius, but funny. i heard they're making a movie of raaaaaandy it could be funny. especially if it was more about his life being a crazy asshole than his standup. randy has the makings of a great comedy character, for me. self centered to the point of absurdity mixed with pointless excitement.
July 29, 2009, 8:28 a.m. CST
that funny people trailer is so lame, and to think they even titled it funny people. i enjoyed the randy documentaries but they tell me he's only in it for a couple minutes. so why should i go see this movie? oh well, im sure i'll get on netflix next year.
July 29, 2009, 8:34 a.m. CST
As the annoying phone guy before movies.
July 29, 2009, 8:37 a.m. CST
Nice to see someone have a positive first time story about stand up. I always wondered if there are stand ups who tried it and killed the first time, or at least just didn't bomb.
July 29, 2009, 8:39 a.m. CST
I couldn't believe it, granted it was during a Rodney Carrington special. So probably no one screened it, I think it was just on after I finished something on the DVR. I was like did comedy central just show something rated R? And it was not 3 in the morning.
July 29, 2009, 8:40 a.m. CST
I don't find it very funny at all. And *that's* the joke? Meh.
July 29, 2009, 9:23 a.m. CST
Judd Appatow's dick enough.

July 29, 2009, 10:32 a.m. CST
I don't get it. Raaaaaaaandy is a character that's exactly like the guy but a little more annoying? Powerful shit. Funny people looks like the misleading name of the century. Congrats to that little pecker on being the one non Jewish guy in the whole fucking movie btw. They should have called it Jewish Guys Phoning It In.
July 29, 2009, 11:28 a.m. CST
On Rotten Tomatoes yesterday Seth Rogan was their person of the day and his highest rated movie was Funny People, but as the day went on and the reviews came in by the end of the day Knocked Up was his highest rated movie.
July 29, 2009, 12:42 p.m. CST
40 Year Old Virgin was pretty funny, but Harry made it seem like this watershed moment that no comedy in 50 years was like this film. Knocked Up was an improvement in that they added some level of drama. I don't think Seth Rogen is a genius, nor does he annoy me. He is simply there.<p>Funny People seems like a logical progression given Upatow's first two films. I'll see it with reasonable expectations.
July 29, 2009, 1:14 p.m. CST
A clear dig at the Dane Cook phenomenon--thought that was the consensus? The high-bullshit delivery. Raving frat audiences. Particularly the bit where Randy steals someone else's material. Az just being political by not crediting this?
July 29, 2009, 1:16 p.m. CST
jesus fucking christ judd is getting in over his fucking head!! a 2 and a half hour comedy? (dramedy?) you got to be shitting me.
July 29, 2009, 3:34 p.m. CST
This is the first thing I've seen him do I find amusing. I don't see the character being funny for much longer, though. BTW, I took the file cabinet of jokes & studying the audio peaks as a reference to the infamous Dat Phan.

I have loved the first two Apatow films exponentially and I think this one is going to be the best yet. I like this viral marketing campaign (and do LOVE Raaaaaaaandy!) because they're making the world of FUNNY PEOPLE bigger than the movie itself and saving whats actually going to be in the movie. This will be inevitably be one packed DVD. I'm seeing it tomorrow with huge anticipation (something I rarely allow myself these days.) "That's not a cheeseburger, that's my dick!"
