It's true, it's getting to the point where I can't take a step without tripping over an improv troupe.

Groan. Well put, brap.

Well, at least it's not Improv Everywhere again.

We need more of the old Cacophony Society stunts again.

and now none of those people will ever give anyone any spare change because they'll be expecting a sketch.

Hey, I've bought candy on the way home from the bar on the D train

satanorsanta: Hey, I've bought candy on the way home from the bar on the D train

Buying 'mexican viagra' and realizing later that it's just a handful of tictacs is not the same thing as 'buying candy'.

That was a funny video.

That train could have used more SWAT, flashbangs and tear gas.

Can't be. Nobody got into a fist fight because two people's elbows accidentally touched.

Lat time I was in NYC I accidentally bumped some skinny kid's elbow and you'd have thought I'd just pulled a gun on him. He looked utterly mortified, shrunk into his seat and just started apologizing like I was about to lay him out.

It was weird.

Were you wearing pants? Cause if you weren't wearing pants that would make the story much better cause everybody knows skinny kids friggin hate elbowdonging.

As someone who uses the subway system regularly, hearing the phrase, "excuse me, ladies and gentlemen!" instantly sends a chill down my spine.

What's it gonna be today?  The down and out "single mother"?  The "I'm selling candy to stay off the streets" angle?  The crazy woman who hates her mother?, the "I just need money, so can you give me some" guy?  It never f*cking ends.

That being said, this video was pretty funny.

In SF we don't get panhandlers on our Bart system, we get punks thinking that if they protest and stop the trains they have won.  I'd take an annoying panhandler over a protester any day of the week.
 
2013-07-08 09:03:25 PM
video really made me chuckle, predictable after the 2nd guy (including the last guy), but still funny.

As a contributor to this project I can honestly say that it's an honor to see it on Fark 5 years after its conception.
 
2013-07-08 09:18:09 PM
Well that made me laugh after a rotten day at work.  Thanks!
 
2013-07-08 09:19:20 PM
even though i saw it coming, i liked the ending.  this video was charmingly offensive to the shiftless.  but it slowly cut the tension so everyone could relax.

AAAAnnnnnd "elbowdonging".

I always wonder what bored, unemployable NY theatre students do with their free time.

Yeah, that shiat sucks.

It may have been funny once, but now?  It's not funny.  I've seen so many videos of people just creating a scene for no reason other than to make a youtube video that I don't even watch most videos anymore.

I only watched about a quarter of this one.

Give it up people.  You're not funny.  This isn't candid camera.  Get a farking life.

I'm really fun at parties too.  I don't know why nobody invites me to them anymore

At least that was funny and had a message, the poor around here wait at intersections and off ramps, it's really just sad.

thank you

I am getting so tired of people coming up with unfunny, not clever stuff for the purpose of a YouTube post. It just seems so lame. If i was sitting on that train, I would yell out "Please just stop, its not funny. It's just annoying and nobody here thinks you're clever or even entertaining. Just stop. Please"

Most videos have to wait much much much longer to make it to fark.

The couple from Nantucket got a chortle out of me.  The mariachi band made me glad I wasn't on there.

I notice they always pull this shiat on the 4/5/6 in midtown or on the L at Bedford-Union Square. They may be dumb hipsters, but they know better than to try this on the J near Jamaica or on the B/D up in Tremont

Given the choice between stinky drunken bums slurring their speech while they ask you for money and sitting through ANOTHER improv event, I'd take the drunken bums in a heatbeat.

Don't get me wrong, as bits go, that was pretty good stuff.

Kind of in the funny cause it's true vein, and not really even that over the top.  My recent commute record so far is four panhandlers/performing groups in one car.  The groveling for cash thing is especially onerous around holidays.

We get these in Paris all the time too, but they're usually not selling anything, just asking for cash.

The french language is ... not terribly well-suited to mendicity. When the beggars make their appeals in that dead-eyed, flat-intoned, ratatat style, it sounds like someone using an original Stradivarius violin to play an Insane Clown Posse song.  It's jarring to the ear ; it might be offensive, even, if it weren't so pathetic.
 
2013-07-10 01:59:20 AM
Repeat from a while ago, but still pretty funny.

In Berlin the trend seems to be to play a short song between stops and then walk around with a little bag for some change.

In all honesty sometimes they're pretty good and I won't miss 50 cents.
