Obligatory montage of comedians making silly faces and sounds. Can we just spin this off into its own series, Comedians Make The Unfunniest Noises? Obligatory snarky comment from the scouts.
More comics. Sean Rouse, Houston. He gets into the showcase by doing a long thing about Bobby Knight that, frankly, I don't get at all. It gets bleeped a couple of times. I know who Bobby Knight is, I know what the joke is referring to, but I still could not extract the juicy nectar of humor that obviously was contained therein, and lost from all the bleeping. Was there a cryptex involved? If you're going to present us with winning humor, let it be something we can at least understand. The judges like it, so he's in. But not with me, dammit. Sarah Colonna of Los Angeles. Very unfunny material about dating. Ant is cracking up the whole time and loves her. Alonzo and Kathleen clearly don't. Kathleen asks for a joke that's not about dating or alcohol. Unfunny bit about visiting friends back home who work at Wal-Mart and are overweight. This is why some people in red states hate a lot of people who live in L.A. Ant laughs some more, because he's an asshole, and tells Kathleen that Sarah took her direction and delivered. Poorly. Kathleen says yes to Alonzo's no, so hacky, unfunny, derivative, Ant-pleasing Sarah Colonna is in. But hey, who am I to judge? Sarah is exhilarated to reach millions of people. I hope you can reach them with better jokes later.
