Pretty much. Some of us were busting Jays balls like we would do to...say...
TImmmy, whom we like, but find ridiculous. Its the Hampur way.
SAR posted as if Jay had wronged him somehow...it seemed oddly personal and vindictive.
Enough. Time to set the record straight:
SAR posts the video of Jay Jay on Leno. Says "looks like Jerry Maguire was the peak".
Sooth says "yeah, and he still makes more money than you".
Jay Jay says "Gentlemen. Always play to the largest possible audience. What am I supposed to do? Go on Leno and be the guy that smashed Justin Bieber? Funny in the short term, money loss in the long term. Companies like to hire safe comics for corporate gigs."
32green (that's you) writes: Did Lenny Bruce craft his material to secure corporate gigs? Does Gilbert Gottfried fake an old Jew's voice to secure corporate gigs? Did Emo Phillips bang Judy Tenuta to secure corporate gigs?
SAR says "I drive a BMW". Talk then goes to auto leasing for about two pages. Things are okay.
Jay Jay comes back. Posts "so who's coming to the show??????"
32green (that's you) writes: Say what you want about that steroidal shemale....Carrot TOp would have put Justa Beaver in a headlock and choked her out for our entertainments...Corporate gigs be damned!!!!
Jay Jay writes: "you completely missed my point"
Badniss chimes in: "Booked in minus 5 degrees Atlantic City over SuperBowl weekend! The dude should be ridin' high in DALLAS next weekend with all the playa's...booked at ReUnion Arena, 2 sold out shows in front of 18,000 on both Fri & Sat nites. Tell your agent to WAKE UP & get to work..."
SAR, a day or two later, reports back: "There are millions more fans in your target demographic that would have worshiped you had you pwned Bieber than there are fans outside your target demographic that appreciate the fact that you took it easy on the kid. If, say, your audience is made up of 35-55 year olds, well, you just were spanked by a twerp and made to look irrelevant. You'd have been a YouTube sensation for ripping him to shreds, making the teen girls in the audience enraged, getting Leno to throw you off the stage. An edgy comic should, you know, be edgy. Normally I wouldn't be so bold as to tell a TV star how to strategize his career, but then again I do lease a BMW so I think I have legs to stand on here."
32green (that's you) responds to SAR: "Didnt he say the demographic he is appealing to... is anyone booking corporate gigs? I guess he tried edgy and it didnt pay the bills. Heck, Leno hit paydirt the second he turned into a bland, pandering arse kissing hack.
SAR responds to TJ&TW: "As a sitcom actor, Mr. Mohr is pretty good, stringing along a bunch of "B" shows for a nice bit of a run. Nice bank, hot wife, well played. But as a stand-up comedian, well, not the same thing. I mean, is there even a stand-up industry any more? Who goes to these things? Is there a single comic you could say you just have to go see these days? Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, even Andrew Dice Clay had a bit of a buzz. No such thing today."
escamother2: "I've seen Jay's stand-up plenty of times. He's talented and very funny. He just bombed on Leno with Justin Bieber because he wasn't true to himself. That was my biggest issue."
Jay Jay reappears, does his best SBIII impersonation: "It still amazes me when people heckle the comedian onstage and think they are "helping".
B rated actor, lousy career, dying stand up career. A ton of laughs and a real help. Soothe was trying to get a Jetsinsider roadie together and I went ahead and organized a meet and greet just for the guys on the site afterwards at the casino. How wrong of me to try and get some Jets fans together to share some laughs. The show WILL be a sell out. As will foxwoods and the shows after that. Bunch of freaking internet bullies. I CAN take it mind you. I just shouldn't have to. Wanna know what I was doing when I read your insults? I was minding my own f ucking business.
This site had gone the way of many, many fan sites before it. It took a long, slow deliberate turn towards negativity and nastiness. You all have the luxury of being anonymous on here. I don't. So I will tap out and leave it to all of you helpers. LATER: JON FERGUSON COX MOHR"
SAR might have been a bit harsh, but at least he was being honest, not kissing ass.
Oh, and he wasn't (ahem, 32green that's you) alone.
I gotta admit, the thought of Carrot-top grabbing little BeBe and putting him in a headlock on national TV would be potentially the funniest network Moment-of-the-Year occurance that I can imagine....national headlines everywhere...tabloids..etc
as hysterical as that sounds, maybe jay just isnt quite ready for such a radical (yet funny) maneuver...
(I could also see Charlie Sheen doing it).
Oh well Jay, just mark it up as a missed opportunity for MAJOR world-wide media spotlight/attention. No problem, those kind of things come along all the time...
