Yes, on more than one occasion. What I wrote is what I observed. You want to see what happens when a bunch of talented people come together to do crude humor, watch The Aristocrats. Bob Saget's version of the joke is entertainment genius.

Yes, it turns out that at one time I was 15 year old boy with barely a brain between his ears, then I grew up.

Yeah, that's roughly the same age I was when I listened.

About The Aristocrats, Bob Saget's delivery was spectacular, but I the way Martin Mull restructured the joke was brilliant. Possibly NSFW due to language.

I agree, Howard really livened up the show a lot, and plays off the other 2 real well.

So many good acts robbed tonight, worst results ever, disappointed doesn't even begin to describe it. I imagine Howard will be ranting about it on his show, as he should, because man the voting was so wrong.

I am pretty sure William Close the Harp guy will win the show.
His top 48 performance shows he could start a Vegas show tomorrow.

The Sand guy is pretty awesome too.

I agree about William Close, so do the judges evidently. Looking forward to next week, he's performing, and I absolutely love Dittleman (the mind reader).

I voted for Tom myself. Close was great, and will be great, but I loved Tom Cotter and wanted him to win real badly. It's unfortunate that the dogs won, because really, can you even see sitting through them for an hour long show? They repeated most of the same tricks every week. People just voted for them because "aww, dogs are so cute!"

Oh well, here's hoping this catapults Tom's career forward anyway, the guy's amazing.

Tom Cotter supposedly already have had a Showtime Special, a Special on Comedy Central and A Reality Show.

I have not searched for links however. He probably should not have been allowed on the show.

So in an interview Horse said he now has a show on MTV2. He also said he sells the stunt clips he makes to shows like Tosh 2.0 and other clip shows. He gets maybe $500-1000 for a clip.

Doesn't surprise me, I expected him to get some kind of show and/or movie after that exposure. There's a void to fill for that kind of thing since Jackass has been gone.
