Top Three Acts at Bob Saget Roast

Update: Replaced one video, which had been yanked.

Better watch them fast, Viacom is yanking them all down, quickly.

...

Overall pretty funny. Here were the standouts.

Moderate to Strong Content Warning on the first two.

Oddly, the last one has no offensive material at all, except for a single improvised (and bleeped) f-word.


Number Three. Not Safe for Work. At least one group will be offended.


Number Two (close, but just misses). Not Safe For Work. Three to five groups will likely be offended by this.


Number One. Safe for work.

Priceless, the whole audience and dais cringing at how awful Norm MacDonald is -- and wondering if he's had some kind of head trauma earlier in the day -- before they realize what he's up to.

Took me until the third joke to stop cringing myself.

Actually Norm MacDonald was the funniest guy there even when he wasn't on at the podium. He spent the whole show conspicuously reading the newspaper (when Jeffrey Ross asked him about it, he said, "I just wanted to read something funny, so I'm reading Marmaduke"), and here he does his Befuddled Old Man act to throw Jim Norton off:

Worth watching, and if you even turn to Comedy Central once in the next month, you're more or less compelled to watch it. It's on 24/7.

But pretty much you can just watch these three and be done with it. Several of the other comics are good, but it's mostly just the same sort of stuff you hear every single roast. Good, but not really unexpected or novel.
