I like Dave Foley as much as the next guy:
Not at all.
Kids in the Hall never made me laugh. Newsradio did, but not when Dave Foley was on screen, and I have to say that the idea of having Dave Foley as some sort of comedy judge on “Thank God You’re Here” is completely laughable.
There’s no way some untalented, easy-going Canadian is going to tell ME who’s funny. I knew from the get go this would be terrible and settled down to watch the first episode of the show the other day, just to prove myself right.
I watched the debut and, while it isn’t the funniest show I have ever seen, I certainly laughed more than I thought I would – particularly at Stifler’s Mom who I thought would suck. Also, the guy who hosts Soup on E! was on, and he surprised me with the amount of times he got a laugh out of me. Newman did a good job but nothing too stellar.
But you know who I thought was terrible? Malcolm’s Dad/Tim Watley. Awful. I’ve never seen a stupider, more unfunny improvisation in my life.
Guess who Dave Foley picked as the “winner?”
I can say with absolute certainty that of all the people who are involved in comedy on TV, Dave Foley is in the top 3 of “Most undeserving of a job requiring people to either be funny or gauge the humor of others.”
The day will come when Dave Foley will die, hopefully in some sort of fight-to-the-death cage-match with fellow moron Carlos Mencia1 that renders them both lifeless from a lance that has pierced their brain, hurled by either Jack Bauer or myself making a surprise appearance.
Then I’ll host a show. And it’ll be called “Thank God you’re dead.” And Dave and Carlos will be the first to win an award. And I will pee on their graves. The end.
1I really hope someone leaves me a grammatically horrendous comment telling me how great Carlos Mencia is because he isn’t “afraid” to “tell it like it is.”
