I've never understood the Paris Hilton phenomenon. Without any discernible talent, except for a tabloid-friendly name and a long blonde mane, she has spent the last few years being covered breathlessly by the entertainment media. Personally, I don't even think she's that hot. Considering that Hilton craves public attention, I think it's time to put her in a zoo.
(Voice of tour guide) Next we will visit a North American Dizzy Debutante named Paris. Many believe she is a descendant of the Native American tribe, The SKANK-a-HO. We at the Columbus Zoo strongly suggest that girls under the age of 16 not see this exhibit, as she does set a horrible example on how to behave for the young and impressionable. As we step up to the cage, let me suggest to listen carefully, as you will be able to hear (hissing sound) the air actually leaving her head. Please do not feed her, as the Dizzy Debutante will scarf and then barf whatever she ingests. The only protein Paris can keep down after swallowing is human semen. Speaking of this, let's next go to the Clay Aiken cage....
We don't do a lot of linking here at thejuiceblog, but here are couple of really funny pieces of video to catch at youtube.com
The first is Clerks 2 director talking about his experience writing the script for a Superman movie that was never made. Smith has never been funnier and even though it's over 19 minutes long, it's well worth checking out.
The second is a site called lafflink.com, which has compiled stand-up material it appears from old A&E shows like Evening at the Improv. Fun to watch early routines from guys like Dave Attell, Norm MacDonald, and Dave Chappelle. The one I recommend you check out first is from a comedian named Dan Whitney, who became better known as Larry the Cable Guy. Truthfully, it's hard to believe it's the same guy, especially with him wearing a pastel dress shirt, khaki pants, and a pair of shiny new white sneakers.
I've been pretty tough on this year's Last Comic Standing, but last week was a great example of why comics try so hard to get on the show. Each of the 5 finalists were given 5 minutes to do their act and all 3 men that are left, showed off their talents well. Ty Barnett, Chris Porter, and Josh Blue are 3 excellent young stand-ups, who deserve the boost the show is going to give them. Blue is set to be the major break-out star from LCS 2006, as his timing is remarkable.
