This is our second look at Daniel Songer aspiring open mic’r. I do believe the funniest parts of this video are when Mr. Songer decides to crouch for some unknown reason. My second favorite is when there is a little girl playing in the yard, just beyond the camera and you hear her say “hi” (1:43).
Oh what can I say about Skip Towne. He seems like a nice enough guy and it seems like he would do well, but speaking from an artistic standpoint his act includes so many no-no’s.
Street Jokes – First off, his act comprises of only street jokes which reeks of his inability to create an original joke. Some may ask “What is a street joke?” A street joke is any joke people tell to their friends or pass along the Internet, or may be printed in a “joke” book. For example, Skip’s first joke about being on the grand ol opry more than any country singer, because he was fixing the roof. I have also heard it on stage in this version. “Do you guys recognise me from the movies? What? I go every saturday night!” – street joke.
Street Jokes set to song – Roadkill Cafe. Not only is eating roadkill a completely hack topic, but Skip has the talent to set this to song! Don’t argue when my husbands drunk. Same thing, street joke set to music.
Singing Comedy – There are some good singing comics, check out God’s Pottery, the Hazzards, and The Dustballs. It takes a lot of balls, creativity, and talent to make singing or musical comedy funny. Skip can sing and play guitar. I’ll give him that much. I will be posting more bad comedy guitar singers who can’t sing or play.
Gay Bashing – Ha ha ha, isn’t it funny that he is really a gay cowboy? hahaha. Why is that funny? How is that funny? “Gayness” in and of itself isn’t funny.
Laugh Track – Really? Why can’t you get stage time in a regular club to film this in front of a real audience?
Lazy Comedy – Slap the curtain up so we can make this video. At least its not a sheet.
Prop Comedy – Always a lazy crutch for not being able to to write a creative joke. His record went aluminum, in case you forgot.
