Comedian The Movie

I watched the movie Comedian last night. For those unfamiliar, it's a documentary following Jerry Seinfeld's return to stand-up comedy with all new material. It also profiles a younger comedian, Orny Adams, looking for his big break. Yep, you read that right, Orny Adams. During his entire set the man does not say anything about his own name. He's a stand-up comedian, and not one word. How is that possible?

This movie made me really like Jerry Seinfeld, and really dislike Orny Adams. While Jerry is professional and relatively humble, Orny is arrogant and condescending to everyone. I was actively rooting for Orny to crash and burn. I feel bad, as he was moderately funny, but the fact that he was such a dick destroyed any chance that I would ever want to see him again.

He also really seems like the type of guy who would Google himself constantly to find out what the world is saying about Orny Adams. So, if you're reading this, Orny, FYI--you came across as a real dick in the movie.

Oh my god - that's too funny!! My husband and I also watched that video and thought the exact same thing. I couldn't stand that Orny dude. He was totally annoying and we kept saying to each other, "What the hell is this guy doing on this tape? He's totally ruining it."

I couldn't figure out why he was so great. Most of his comedy wasn't very funny either. The stool-as-cell-phone thing was OK, and using the mike as the antenna...again, OK. But for a guy looking for his big break, I really think there's better stuff out there in a way less high-maintinence package.

My friend has known 0rny Adams for a few years and believe me the man is an arsehole.
