Pete Holmes has a sneaky good Bill Burr impression

The Patton Oswalt Gala is tonight

More from Jimmy Carr

Mag with your daily comedy news coming to you from Montreal. It’s about 1130. It just came out of new faces group two. Can I wait to tell you about that? But quick, late night, if I can squint on my phone here in the dark to see the charco taco is going away. See if a Cobert said no, not the Chuck Osako was the only dessert with as much a real. A taco bell. Go there again. I guess the answer to what would you do for a KAK bar? The answer murder, your childhood. Wow.

Trevor Noah, the taco taco is the perfect

American fusion of cultures. That’s right. It’s Mexican and sugar.

Now let’s talk new faces in group two here P homes, by the way, really impressive MC and I didn’t really do him justice in, when I said about yesterday’s episode in group one, he did a great job of not throwing fast balls. And he talked about on stage. I, he comes out in, he absolutely crushes. He’s making it harder for the new comics we were trying to request, especially the industry.

So Pete would kind of lo him in and not try as hard, not bring his best stuff. It doesn’t mean. Funny, but it was not his a game, but that was delivered. Nice move by Pete Holmes,

new faces grip two. Wow. Nine outta 10, crushed it. First up all Culbert. She had some really good material about being a serial killer. Um, my own little notes here is some of the, community’s got a star LA Cobert got a star for me, whatever that’s.

Second up a Emil Waki. I wrote down the word a charisma, really great stage presence

and did just a killer joke about, uh, Greta Berg, the environmental spiral. I will just go his material or ruin it. When you see him, it is just a great, great set. Pink Fox is a transgender comedian. They absolutely. As well. So those three stars, three for three out at the top and his next couple were really good.

Just half a step down from the three openers.

Andrew Arafo. I liked him a lot. I wrote he’s got a little Hannibal burst in him, meaning his storytelling style that I did have a tough draw. It was just, it wasn’t bad at all. In fact it was really good. Wasn’t as like really awesome missed the first three,

Laura peak was in the five slot and a nice solid set there again, another tough draw. She did some really good jokes about Tennessee. I’m trying to read my own chicken scratch here in the dark on number six was a Skylar HBI. Skylar did some material about growing. As an African American,

his parents are white

and he had an absolute great, great closer, uh, did some material about Jesus Christ as being part of a fraternity. Uh, I was really apostle telling the stories about all of JCS. Awesome adventures. Really fantastic.

Seventh up Forio Kaso from Chile had a really good take on Americans and Americans calling themselves Americans, not the most original premise, but a good, good take on that one. And had probably the best joke of the entire night, all 20 comedians. So keep an eye on Forio.

The eight spot. Uh, Brian Bahi is an indigenous comedian. Really good set as well, a half step down off AIO. Uh, but by no means bad Hannah burner in the nine spot. Um, my college age son, the nine, neither one of us was feeling it. Hannah was doing her material clearly targeted to resonate with women and I’m not a woman.

So I just kind of, I don’t know, didn’t didn’t connect. I’ll let someone else stretch that. Um, but here’s the one to keep the eye on and the. Of group two,

John Marco CREI, he’s got some John Melan in him. Pete Holmes called him, that serial killer version of Jeff BL. And he said was absolutely fantastic. The writing was so crisp and what a great way to go out on. I’d probably put him, so he definitely won the, the group two. And if I had to look at the combination of both sets, I’d put.

A second best overall. And I’m looking back from my notes. I gotta learn these people’s names for group one.

Ethan summons is a Pressman. I can’t read my own notes in the dark. I’m standing seriously in new illustrate across from McDonald’s trying to get some light from a store, but the guy I told you about yesterday, He’s the best one. And, uh, the, the closer tonight, the second best one, I’m back home. And I have proper notes in front of me.

I’ll run through this again next week, but new faces group two. Wow. Uh, just for laughs. Overall, the two shows tonight. So, and I’ve seen you faces before. This was a much higher percentage than the usual of just absolute crushing from memory. I think it was 17 end to 20 were really good. And I’m not saying the other three were bad, but 17 outta 20 were really good.

And Pete homes. Job THEC. All right. So the second half of the podcast today, we’ll take the break a little early. The second half is recorded in the studio back before I left on the trip and more from, just for last Montreal tomorrow, but don’t leave. There’s more. Don’t forget to let me know who you’d rather have cooked for you. Jim Gaffigan or Sebastian Maniscalco, go to the daily comedy news Facebook group. Find the picture of those two gentlemen, you could do the same thing on Instagram at daily comedy news, as a picture of Sebastian, a picture, Jim, and you’re gonna tell me who you would rather have cook for you.

I’ll update that over the weekend. Tonight at the Montreal comedy festival of the Patton Oswald gala, the Holly reporter spoke to Patton Oswald and said, , who do you find to bounce material off these days? Pat new has a new Netflix special coming out in September, said a few months before the special I’ll book, two nights in a row, once a month down at like the Irvine improv, a road comedy club, where you really have to edit and hone your stuff down.

There’s nothing more humbling than a weeknight audience that doesn’t of time for you. They’ll let you know how you did know uncertain terms. Patton was of course asked about cancel culture and said, you shouldn’t just cancel out of context. But I also think comedians have a responsibility to evolve and try to push things forward and pushing the envelope. Doesn’t mean digging your feet in while the envelope moves forward, you should be ahead of that envelope.

That’s how you should be pushing it. And again, the whole battle over wokeness, it’s nothing new. It happened in the eighties, happened in the nineties and it happened again in another form. That’s what I was talking about in the special, I do a joke about the future. What I’m gonna be canceled for, and you don’t know, but at least you wanna try to keep progressing.

The other thing I’d say is comedy always worked better with restrictions. Think of the restrictions that Richard Pryor and George Corland had before them. Lenny Bruce, they found clever, brilliant ways around whatever the restrictions were. That’s what made it so fun and thrill.

Called MTL spoke with Jimmy Carr.

And they said, given your appearance that this year’s just for laughs apparently your efforts to end your own career have been unsuccessful. Jimmy said, it’s a weird thing. I did call part of my show, career Enders, and then almost got canceled. I mean, there’s canceled and there’s canceled. I seem to get canceled BI annually and it’s.

Always over joke. There’s a difference between the mock outrage that comes with comedian, tells a joke and gets canceled and someone who really gets canceled. It seems like an occupational hazard and it’s unavoidable given the kind of stuff I do. But I think people realize particularly comedy fans that my jokes are from my head, not in my heart, and I’m not trying to change.

Anyone’s voting habits. Am I.

If you take comedy out of context and present it to people who don’t realize, it’s not a statement, they don’t get it, but why would they, they’re looking at their Facebook feed and suddenly it’s vile hate speech and they go, this is terrible. And you go, no, no, no, no. Within context, it’s ironic. It’s SAR organic and it’s dark and it’s fun, but they haven’t seen the first 57 minutes of the show.

so it ends up becoming comedy for people who didn’t want, or weren’t expecting comedy. If I’m honest, I think the average band on the street is pretty bright and a lot of this is mock outrage who actually confuses my joke with hatred

people who choose to come and see my show have a fantastic time. We get on, you know, it’s almost like a friendship. I mean, think about the people you really laugh with. It’s your friends, family, a couple of comedians that really get you and your personality and your sense of humor really tied up together.

And then suddenly you get to a. Fame or notoriety and your comedy gets exposed to people who don’t wanna hear that kind of comedy as a comedian. You desperately wanna be like, but it’s okay for people to be offended. And to not like it, I mean, there are those who turn it off and say, I don’t like this.

It’s a bit much for me. And I don’t like it. But to say, I don’t think anybody should be allowed to hear that those are two different things.
