I'm definitely watching that. I love Lisa Lampanelli's comedic style.

But seriously, does Larry the Cable Guy warrant a roast?

Wow, watch the audience wake up and briefly remember it has a conscience.

F*ck that. The only reason Lisa can say the most outlandish racist stuff is because she's a female comic. Any male white person with as much media and public exposure as Lisa would have already been sued multiple times.

It doesn't make it any less funny, it's just f*cked up that only certain people can say certain things.

Seriously, she's the tragic, fat, fag hag; not the funny one.

Please, god, rip this woman's tongue out! We homersexuals are not such a narrow demographic anymore.

I don't understand all the people who question whether or not Larry the Cable Guy deserves a roast.

The way I see it, if anyone deserves to get ripped apart in front of a live audience and a television audience, it's that douche.

1 - if you're obese and ugly, you shouldn't really make fun of others.

2 - what does 'Git-R-Done' mean? What language is it from?

3 - Is Larry actually a cable guy? If not, why is he called that?

No. Neither does this guy.

I actually like Lisa Lampinelli but this joke wasn't even that funny as told. Her set up was very weak: "beaten that concept" is just poor phrasing. I would have said "beaten that joke" calling back the cliche "beating a joke to death." Instead she throws out an intellectual word like concept and I lost a millisecond associating concept with Git-R-Done. She went for the brain when she should have gone for the jugular. That said, I'll be stealing the joke anyway.

1. It's called comedy. Stop being a Nancy-(D).

2. The "language" would be English, from the Southeastern part of the United States. It's another way of saying "Get her done", for those that don't speak redneck, this phrase usually can mean, "Atta boy!", or "That was rather smashing, I must say!", or if there is a difficult task at hand, rednecks sometimes take the phrase to mean "It's a tough job, but someone has to do it", it can also mean: "She's ready for sex, now let's get down to the business of doing it", and sometimes rednecks say it simply as a form of celebrating being alive, a primitive rebel yell, if you will, "Whoo-hoo! It is past five o'clock on a Friday night, let's close up this auto repair shop and Git R Done!"
So, as you can see there are many interpretations for "Git R Done", and this is how Larry the Cable Guy has sustained a very lucrative career.

3. Larry the Cable Guy was never a Cable TV installer, he created the character when he was calling into radio stations as fictional characters. Oh, and his full name is Daniel Lawrence Whitney.

GungFu: Is Larry actually a cable guy? If not, why is he called that?

Apparently, when he was starting out as a comic, he had several characters he'd play. He'd earn extra money calling in to morning radio shows posing as a local listener and banter with the host. "On the phone we have Larry the Cable Guy, good morning, Larry..."

It got the point where he'd have to tightly schedule the calls, wake up ridiculously early, and call many radio stations every day. It took off from there.

Really wasn't that funny. Lisa Lampanelli is a one trick pony. Find a new schtick besides making black cawk jokes on CC roasts.

Ok, guys. Thanks for the info on Larry the Cable Guy.

Heard of him; had no idea what he did - something to do with comedy, though I've never heard any of his stuff. I know he did voice over stuff for 'Cars', but that's about it. He seems to be a showbiz figure of sorts.

Winner of the "I don't understand how roasts work" award.

GungFu: 3 - Is Larry actually a cable guy? If not, why is he called that?

No, and his name isn't Larry either. People are stupid.

And this "joke" was horrible (I don't mean it makes light of a tragedy -- I don't give a fark about the woman, the guy, the violence that has been played up to make for multiple news reports because there's apparently nothing else going on -- I mean horrible "wasn't funny"). I was going to give it a "meh" until she said "BEST. JOKE. EVAR." Really, you fat talentless biatch? It's really not up to the performer to decide that. Please get AIDS from the next black man that takes advantage of you.

Yeah, between this and Joe Rogan's pique with Mencia, it just makes both of them look like petty, jealous losers.

I like Cross, but 90% of a comedian's act is invention, at least for 90% of the comedians out there, so ragging on a guy for creating a persona while you "keep it real" is, at the very least, a bit lame.

/Dane Cook, however, deserves all of the hatred

Wait, Larry the Cable guy is a character this guy plays, so they roasted a fictional character? Isn't this the equivalent of roasting, say, Homer Simpson or George Costanza?

Part of the "appeal" she seems to have is based on the way she looks and acts. We are weirdly fascinated by this matronly, flower-print-style figure because she reminds some of us of our mothers, at least if we're in a certain age group. Yet all this expectation and stereotype is gleefully punctured when what she says is just barely publishable enough to make a few things clear: she is not shy about chasing some Negroes whenever the mood takes her, and she'll casually debase anyone to amuse herself in the process.

Lighten up, Francis. Carlin said plenty of shiat about race. Other comedians too, but I'm not a repository for jokes and it's too early to look for more examples. Maybe later.


coco ebert: Man up nancy, and stop contributing to your own emasculation.

Nail, head, etc.


Also, I saw Lisa live. She puts on a great show, and really enjoys ripping into the audience. I got to speak with her briefly afterwards, and she was a completely chill person. She's a little raw, but in all, a great human being.

Joke repair squad:

The joke as written doesn't make sense.

"You've beaten that concept so hard it's now dating Chris Brown." implies a cause and effect relationship--that the beating somehow prepared the concept for dating Chris Brown, instead of the beating being evidence that the concept was presently dating Chris Brown.

Therefore, it cannot be the BEST JOKE EVAR.

"You've beaten that concept so hard, people said it must be dating Chris Brown."

There are plenty of insult-based comics out. Plus, sorry, but are you kidding? Have you never seen a roast? Lisa is probably in the middle of the road when it comes to telling "offensive" jokes at one of those things.
And also, name the last comic you know that got sued, period. Frigging Kramer screamed racial slurs at his audience, in a non-funny way, and people simply turned their noses up. Say whatever you want, but make it funny or interesting, and you're usually good.

You're lucky you have a Simpsons based name.

Dr. Q Alias: Wait, Larry the Cable guy is a character this guy plays, so they roasted a fictional character? Isn't this the equivalent of roasting, say, Homer Simpson or George Costanza?

Yeah, they actually mention that in the roast itself. Greg Giraldo actually says in the roast commercial clip, "Next year, are we gonna be doing a roast of Spongebob Squarepants?". So I'm assuming that you either haven't seen that particular commercial, or you have seen it and are trying to pass off the joke as your own observation (I'm voting for the former, because it's an astute enough observation that I can give you the benefit of the doubt).

Actually, wasn't there a lawsuit over that incident?

LesserEvil: Yeah, between this and Joe Rogan's pique with Mencia, it just makes both of them look like petty, jealous losers.

For telling the truth? Carlos Mencia is a farking hack who steals jokes, its plain and simple. Larry The Cable Guy is a one joke retard who tells racist and homophobic jokes, its true. Maybe they are both guilty of caring too much about what they do and attention whoring, but at least they picked someone worth of wrath, both of them...
