The audience is going to ruin this show.Reply
Seth, may I introduce you to a concept called “#TheFile”. It was created by a couple of Hall of Fame radio DJ’s.
The File is something like this: whoever written, or said a really bad joke, Or in this case, written a really bad joke. That joke is placed in the file and they are branded for life “The World’s Worst Joke Teller”, or in this case “The World’s Worst Joke Writer”. The only way they can redeem themselves, kind of like your surprise inspection, is to confront them with that same bad joke. Like if your parents shamed the dog for peeing in the house. If the writer admits that was a bad joke, they are redeemed and they are saved. However, if they still believe that bad joke was still good, even though it was rancid beyond belief, they will still carry on that shame for the rest of their lives.Reply
When the audience comes back, I hope Seth keeps the casual look. Makes the show seem more fun!Reply
Here’s a better version of one of those jokes: Over the weekend, passengers on a Spirit Airlines flight were forced to deplane after a large bird caused an engine fire. And here’s the really sad part- the bird had a better experience with Spirit than anyone else that day.Reply
That depressed lab rat joke was great.Reply
I prefer the show without the audience. FYI
I liked the lab rat joke.Reply
Good joke Schumaker!! Gotta love BTOReply
justice for large birdReply
You can name this segment “White people and one asian write terrible jokes”Reply
I actually had to follow Scollins on Twitter. I just don’t want to miss any of his “jokes?”Reply
It’s interesting to see how hard joke writers work. Failed jokes reveal how hard it is to write a really good one, especially based on random news events.Reply
This whole thing was contrived and certainly not an unannounced surprise by any means. But it was bafflingly funny in certain spots.Reply
Does anyone else think Seth’s writer looks like Tucker Carlson? @ 1:57Reply
Collections, your time is up!Reply
If the writers fail inspection, will Seth order them to drop and give him twenty?Reply
Hil,-friggin-larious! This one’s definitely a keeper.Reply
The rat study was hilarious, that it wasn’t included was… A TRAVESTY. That’s for you, Amy (sp), lol.Reply
The jokes are bad but this segment is hilariousReply
