Only The Illest Comedies AKA Dartflix Edition #5

The trick with this particular post is for me to post some comedies/or comedy series’ that everyone isn’t up on. It’s too easy to list flicks like Anchorman, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Nacho Libre and The Ballad Of Rick Bobby. I have to dig deep and find things that people may or may not be up on, this doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate standups like Katt Williams or Dane just means that I’d like to push some cats that people may or may not be aware of like Patrice O’ Neal, Deray Davis, Wendy Liebman or The Flight Of The Conchords. I also had to go into the wayback machine to find some older comedy series’ that people may have forgotten about. This edition was the toughest one to do so far because I pretty much had to get rid of all of the well known stuff. Here it goes.

Dart’s WTF? Awards/Watch This Bullshit At Your Own Risk:
Mike Epps: Innapropiate Behaviour- Mike Epps is funny in movies. When he has to come up with his own routines...he can flounder. It’s like he’s freestyling it all on stage, the difference being that on a movie set, he’s quick and improvise a whole comedic scene. On stage, it’s painful to watch. He uses a lot of contrived material and he isn’t original enough to pull it off. He pretty much rehashes all of the old go to jokes. Sad.

Random Platinum Comedy Series/Def Comedy Jam compilations- Past 1996, Def Comedy Jam was rendered no longer funny because BET’s Comic View was giving all of the comic that normally didn’t have a venue a place to grow and perform. Once HBO brought it back, it was no longer funny any more. The only Def Jam comps worth watching are the ones between 1993-1996. Or get the ones that focus on a specific comedian/comedians...a lot of those cats sucked for real.

Next Edition: Documentaries
