This Saturday, the Amazing Jonathan will have his 2nd Comedy Central stand up set - this time, it seems like he's got a full hour special.

This Saturday, the 18th, 10 P.M.

***! Funny. There are lines from that I would love to use.

Johnathan: "Do you see your bill in the middle of the fire?"

Spectator: "Yes, it is burning."

Johnathan: "But its not turning black"

Spectator: "No, its burning, its black"

Johnathan: *pause* "Ok, this goes on the list of $H** I can't do!"

My wife hated the tounge, but I sure got a laugh! He's quite the entertainer.

"Yes"

"Well he's back in town"

After I came home from wathcing Penny Dreadful last night, I got to watch about the last 10-15 minutes of the special. It's basically like watching his live preformance with a teeny weeny bit of new stuff.

He makes big bucks because he's entertaining and knows how to present his gags well. Other magicians could learn from him.

Managed to catch this one by accident while channel surfing. This guy is seriously sick, twisted and disgusting!!! I loved every minute of it!!! :)

His show on comedy central was very cleaned up. In language I mean. If you watched his live show like I did, wow! Can't go 10 seconds without cursing lol.

Well, it has to be cleaned up.. Although it is on a pretty provocative channel, they don't want his act to be like:

"Help me out you BLEEP! Here, take the BLEEP side of the BLEEP silk and help me the BLEEP out! BLEEP *** retard." =]

It just doesn't make any sence.. Lol..

I saw this as well and I enjoyed it. Very entertaining.

I liked it; but I was hoping for more substance and a lot less commercials. I thought the last special he did, (sadly, only a half an hour), was better. The routines on the older show with Psychic Tonya were hilarious, though I enjoyed the new ones in Saturday's special, as well. I could do without the language and The Amazing Jonathan was less "blue" 15 years ago, but just as funny. There were things on his table he did not utilize, so I'd like to see what they obviously cut out. Hopefully, it will be available on DVD.
