Let me just start out by saying that Ralphie May and Dat Phan are two unfunny comedians. I hardly cracked a smile during either of their sets. Ralphie had a year to come up with new stuff and he STILL recycled material - either that or he stole it because I know I’ve heard the jokes before. Dat Phan was his typical self, I wasn’t frowning for some of his set but that’s as much as I’ll give him.
Watching the sets the top three did, Season 2 is MUCH funnier than season one. I know comedy is subjective but I don’t think it’s even close. The top six of this season would bury any one in Season 1. Comparing Alonzo/John/Gary to Dat/Ralphie is like pinning seasoned pros versus amateurs. I don’t even think they are in the same class?
As for the winner, John Heffron well done sir. You can’t go wrong with any of those three but after rewatching tuesdays show I’m pretty sure he deserved it. I laughed at his set a lot even after rewatching it which is a pretty big deal. The others were worthy of being in the final three for sure and I wish them the best of luck.
Pitting Season one versus two doesn’t seem all that fair to me. Dave Mordal is a solid comedian and I have a lot of respect for him but there isn’t much else in that house. I’d put a lot of money on Season two at this point. John Heffron is one solid comedian and will have a great career ahead of him - as will Alonzo, Gary, Kathleen, the sicilian, and even Jay for that matter. I can’t say the same for any in the other house or at least not a career on the level of any I’ve mentioned from Season 2. Season 3 is fixing to be a blowout.
What did you think?
