(God I had to be the nerdiest looking dude in that lineup this year. I didn't even intend to wear that outfit but I arrived at the show while wearing my Mike Meekins outfit and I thought that it would have looked too distracting so I removed the police jacket and I put on my glasses so that I could properly see the audience)
Well Fazio I do owe you one, you told me about the AX Backstage interview so I had to respond in kind.
Wow, first off thank you so much for the coverage of Last Comic Standing 2009. My biggest regret was that I didn't have the other performers recorded as I kept stressing to all those who just saw my vids that the 2009 set was just brutal fight for the title. If there was anything I wish you could have recorded it would be the cheering segments. Things got real rowdy that night and it was amazing to see how into the show everyone was. In my honest opinion Fazio got lucky and was seeded in the first round and didn't have to battle the likes of Anton, Afro Samurai and the first champion
Naw I kid, Fazio is a super solid comedian with a unique style that really set him apart from many people, so unique in fact that I can't steal any of his jokes....oh darn, poor me.
Believe me folks, seeing Anton and his guitar made me sweat bullets cause the dude had the total package: stunts, jokes and music works the crowd really ate up his routine and me and all the others that followed him were just shaking in fear. When I performed I was glad I got laughs PERIOD and all I cared about was just giving a good show before dying in a blaze of glory. Hearing the huge ovation the crowd gave Anton made me think that all was lost until I heard my cheers. When it got to the tie breaker I sensed an opportunity for a come back and just fought back with the most brutal yo mamma jokes I could think of. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVN6jUd1Mus&feature=channel_page
But yes, this goes without saying that you should watch the show in 2010, Fazio is right about us joking about having a grudge match and I'm sure Anton will want to jump in as this was the first time in the show's history that the winner had to directly face off against two opponents. I'll make sure to make up a good set (I'm super nervous about the thought of me not being able to top my 09 performance as I somehow managed to make every punchline hit home) but really the show will not be about me but more so the crowning of a new winner. I really hope I open the show rather than close it out because at the end everyone is tired from all that cheering and ready to leave. The biggest strength I had this year was that I was a virtual unknown, Masa D. Luffy called me the Darkhorse while Mikado said that watching my rise to victory was like a Rocky movie. I really hate tooting my own horn but I wanted to illustrate that many of the advantages I had in 09 will never be mine again but that's not gonna stop me from getting the laughs.
Right now I'm wondering if I should wear that same outfit again for 2010.
Thanks again otakuwanted for your killer coverage, I'll be back next year making silly side comments and having an opinion that doesn't matter.
