Let's face facts here: Bono probably has a whole stable of impersonators, strategically placed around the globe, ready at a moments notice to swoop in and try to discredit Patriot Citizen Blogger Journalists. Don't worry though, they're ever vigilant and will uncover the truth.

Bono himself is a fraud, as well. Just another part of the copyright cartel.

He's one of the key people pushing the SOPA/ACTA/PIPA internet censorship laws.

But the interview Jason Mattera had with Andrew Breitbart yesterday...THAT'S real!
 
2012-03-22 04:50:36 PM
This guy was not "had", duped, trolled. That would indicate that someone went out of their way to trick him.

No, the guy made a mistake. If he must insist he was duped, then the person that duped him was himself.

For someone else to have duped him, they would have had to set it up for him to interview Bonodouble. But, nope. "Journalist" saw who he thought was Bono, and approached him on his own (Bono, Bonodouble, DeathtoAmericaLiberals, etc. did not contact him to get him to interview Bono).

He WAS NOT DUPED. He made an idiotic mistake. Take personal responsibility and own up to it.

Wait - when Breitbart realized it, or when they realized that others realized it?
 
2012-03-22 07:13:28 PM
Their first clue should have been how 'Bono' kept saying "schwiggidy schwag" and mentioning "my wife".

Reminds me of the professional Michael Jackson impersonator that basically was able to bluff his way into very high class/ expensive situations.
Albeit, a medical mask is a bit more concealing than ever present sunglasses.

rickythepenguin: I like Jay Mohr's Bono impersonation....saw Jay recently in Phoenix....he has a bit he's done before about how much money their last tour grossed. frankly teh bit isn't very funny but whatever. I guess because he was in phoenix, he wanted to do it. he's like, "so, U2's last tour, they grossed $800 MILLION dollars! can you believe that?"

and then he goes, "by applause, how many of you saw the show at Sun Devil Stadium?"

Myself and one other person clapped. Roomful of like, 700 people, and two people clapped. Completely killed the bit. Not our fault. He asked the wrong question. He goes, after an incredulous pause, "wow.....Thanks a lot, Phoenix, U2 sells out stadiums with 80,000 people, and yet only two of you are gonna get this bit." he then detoured into an abbreviatied "bono makes a ton of money" bit.

well, what Jay didn't realize is that the U2360 tour -- the one he meant -- played UofP stadium (where the caridnals play). But he didn't say that. When he said "Sun Devil Stadium", to us, he meant the December 1987 shows. i was there, as was someone else. Now, had he asked about the Cardinals STatdium shows, I bet damn near 80% of the room would have applauded. anyways.

He was kinda pricky that night...he cracked several jokes that fell flat. at one point, not pissed but disappointed, he goes, "wow.....I am shocked more people didn't laugh at that. *sigh* Folks, we're in this together, i am the ocean, you are the boats, so when the tide rolls in, we all need to rise together, ok?"

I later noticed the moment he went over 60 minutes he ended the show. i mean, boom, 60 minutes, "well thanks, good night, see ya!" ehh. what are you gonna do.

/today's lesson on comedy nerd is brought to you by the letter "U" and the number "2"


That's a nice story grandpa.

These are the kind of stories that Obama knew couldn't get out so he had Breitbart murdered but the fearless and real merkins at his blog carry on his patriotic doodies. I know that kills you libtards doesn't it?

Doesn't seem surprising. He's contracted for 60 minutes as a headliner. He probably has more material to fill 90 minutes or so, but I can't imagine it's fun to extend a set that doesn't seem to be going too well. Could have been a bad crowd or it could have been an off night for a veteran comedian. Either way, I wouldn't blame him for bailing at the 60 minute mark for a set that wasn't killing.

oh no, not at all...i mean, i said he was a bit pricky at times, but....there were several points where he was disappointed we weren't eating out of his hand. he also spent 85% of his time having the whole damn room rolling. but i think it probably was a bad room, and, hey, i did my part. but yeah, when he went on after tom segura's set, i made a point to check when he started, and it was a straight 60 minutes.

but.....there were points me and my wife laughed of asses off. put it this way; if jay comes to town i'm there, sight unseen. i love the guy.

also, he was completely respectful to the audience. he came out slamming high fives, never belittled, was just a cool dude. the U2 bit fell flat, and some other joke did too; the whole "the tide rises, we all float" thing. but hey. whatever.


/and i got to meet tom segura. yay me
