rickythepenguin: blue_2501: It strikes me just as odd as saying Lewis Black is stealing Hick's jokes. No, they just have similar topics of comedy.

i find that a fascinating subject (comedians stealing jokes).....i only recently heard the Dane Cook  vs Louis CK controversy, apparently on a "itchy asshole" / "sweaty asshole" bit CK did first.  some comic was on i think Marc Maron's podcast recently and alluded to that, about how Cook was on Louie's tv show and there was tension i guess.

like above, Hicks doing a bit about how non-smokers hate smokers, which Leary evidently did, that's a pretty common subject.  but a bit about a itchy asshole?  that does sound like stealing. or the obvious one, Mencia's "who's gonna build that fence?" joke, which is well documented (or robin williams stealing Jay Mohr's "i talked to christopher walken about what it would be like to have a tail" bit).


Mencia's theft is Legen-dary. I've seen a clip of him doing the whole raising a boy to be a football player bit from Bill Cosby "Himself."

I've also seen clips compairing Leary from "No Cure for Cancer" to Hicks and they are practically identical.

kg2095: timswar: The Stealth Hippopotamus: In other news Denis Leary's wife is hot.

Dennis Leary's wife looks like Dennis Leary in drag. And yet, yeah, she's hot.

Yep. They look like brother and sister.

it happens sometimes -- i have enough features in common with my wife that we can pass as siblings. Its weird because she looks nothing like my actual sisters.
