I'm quite partial to the Who "medley" myself.

Oh. My. God. That was beautiful. Extra points for including a Twisted Sister song.

That's so odd. I was just showing this to a co-worker of mine just a few minutes ago.

I wish a fat android would post to MetaFilter every once in a while.

You know, it wasn't until a few weeks ago while watching comedy central that I realized this is a promo site for a standup comic named Eugene Mirman. That's his picture as a young child.

He was a painfully unfunny standup horrible in fact. and truth be told this site gets old REAL quick- especially since it's made the rounds for some time now.

someone should take that child to a hot dog plant, and i ain't talking about just watching meat get made.

I agree. It was much better a while ago when it was simply the singing photo, with no options. The sense of mystery was far more rewarding than the reality.

Those videos are wretched (the one and a half that I sat through). I'm still waiting for the punchline on the "new media" video, and I'm going to spoil his "secret" video by saying that it's about carnal relations with badgers.

HA, HA, HA. Sheesh.

I think it's suprisingly easy for people to be hypercritical of other people's creativity, especially when the critics spend half their lives hitting refresh here on metafilter.

Give the guy a fuckin' break, mefi-boy.

It is fun to rediscover this stuff. I appreciate the addition of a Michael Jackson song. Makes the kid just that much more creepy.

I saw him too on some late night show and he was terrible. He was so bad, I felt sorry for him. The audience gave him some sympathy laughs. For awhile I was thinking to myself he looks oddly familar but couldn't place him until I heard his name.

Yeah, well if I'd ever gotten the chance to make a little scratch by appearing as a comic, then I'd stand corrected. But I know my own comic talents- or lack thereof- and so I know better than to get on a stage with a microphone and try to make people laugh. It's especially easy to be hypercritical of someone who makes a living- what with me not having a job right now and all- doing something they're so clearly not suited to do. Eugene Mirman is the pointy-haired boss of stand-up comics, yo.
