  2. He is a genius, in my opinion. Funny and deadpan. We need more humorists like him in America.

  3. It just sounds like he is trying way to hard.

  4. You should pick up his book. I think a lot more of his sense of humor will be understandable when you read some of his essays.

    Conversely, watch those TMBG Venue Songs clips. Great stuff!

  6. I'm with DJ hojo, his deadpan humor wasn't funny to me. Kind of wore me down.
