"I sort of suspect Colbert is a devout Christian"
he is! i don't think he's cynically pandering to anti-christians though.

Btw I sort of suspect Colbert is a devout Christian who just knows his market well.

He makes it pretty clear he's Catholic. The show has its own chaplain!

Colbert is infinitely more hilarious AND biting AND humane on religion that Cross ever has or will be.

Cross in that Tripping youtube could easily be posted in "pictures of people that aren't whiney" thread

The only Cross standup routine that got real lols form me was the one where he ate a chocolate mountain covered in gold.
His book was not funny. He's kind of a jerk. I've tried not to let it rub off on my views of Mr. Show, which I still think is funny overall.

otm - like the "emotion lotion" sketch kinda felt a bit too revealing

The final straw for me with Cross was all his whining about how bad he has it on the Alvin and the Chipmunks movies. You signed up for the Alvin and the Chipmunks movies. What on earth about "third Alvin and the Chipmunks movie" made you think it was going to be an actor's dream, especially after burning so many bridges talking shit about the first two?

i know, right!!

i have to admit, i laughed at the comedians zinging each other for being in shitty movies that the alvin thing started.

Growing up non southern Baptist in the bible belt will warp your perspective on religion a bit. Still, you'd think a nearly 50 year old would over it by now.

you don't have friends that just like to complain about shit? Like it seems like they will get themselves into situations just to be able to complain about it later? I dunno, i think that's totally human and kinda lol.

if david cross grew up in the bible belt for the sole purpose of getting whining material, i'd agree that's pretty funny.

Philip Nunez, Monday, 30 April 2012 19:52 (1 year ago) Permalink

ha i think she meant the alvin and the chipmunks thing

some dude, Monday, 30 April 2012 19:55 (1 year ago) Permalink

He's such a diva about it, though. They are not lol complaints.

Growing up non southern Baptist Jewish in the bible belt will warp your perspective on religion a bit.

I think the "Jewish" thing is more significant than the "non-SB" thing.

Oh definitely, but in my experience (as someone living in the south) it's also true for *anyone* not down with southern evangelical culture. I was raised Catholic and I was told I was a non-Jesus-believing heathen several times as a kid. By adults as well as children.

So, extrapolating from my own experience, I can see why being Jewish in the south (especially in the 70's when Cross grew up there) would be fucking alienating in the extreme and warp your view on religion for a long time.

It's better now, and there's a lot more diversity where I live than there was even 15 years ago, but the South is the South.

have a Catholic uncle who lived in Tennessee his whole life and constantly took shit for it, according to him

Roger Barfing (Shakey Mo Collier), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 17:53 (1 year ago) Permalink

I never got too much shit for it, but I did get tired of the "Why do you pray to Mary?" questions.

he didn't really mean anything by it is the thing. just general ignorance.
also me and my sister were regularly told by kids, teachers and kid's parents when we visited their homes that we were going to hell since we hadn't accepted jesus into our lives, both subtly and straight up explicitly

i remember buying my first car with my parents and it was from a friendly good ol boy and the whole process was great and he was a sweetheart right until we got down to the payment and my dad told him he appreciated working with him on the price and the guy said "well you weren't jewing me down or anything it's alright" and we all got very quiet, he bought my car with the money from my savings bonds and we left. put a damper on the excitement, i tell you what

so again, i have no issue with this guy bitching about shitkickers; feels like he's within his rights
i made my peace a long time ago with that stuff but i ain't about to tell him what he should and shouldn't be complaining about

"in this super-sexy postracial age" (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 18:31 (1 year ago) Permalink

Thing is, it aint even shitkickers he'll go after
