Heath Hyche: Last Yellow Face Comic Standing

Monday, July 07, 2008

Thanks to my trusty DVR I had a chance to check out some of the previous week's Last Comic Standing on NBC and I'm glad I did, because otherwise I wouldn't have seen how comedian Heath Hyche decided to go where pretty much no other comedian goes anymore - full blown Mickey Rooney Yellow Face.

Dumbass Hyche does a prop bit where he's a fighter pilot in WW II and starts out looking like this:

And then of course being the crack comedian he is, he makes sure to play the other part as well, complete with his wax on wax off me so horny aren't Japanese accents just so fucking funny voice:

Seriously - are you fucking kidding me?

Who in their right mind does this shit anymore?

Oh wait - WTF was I thinking - half the audience laughed (you dumbfucks), and to make it more insulting they decided to get a closeup of an Asian girl who decided to laugh once the camera was on her (and while I'll give her some benefit of the doubt because the camera panned to her and she probably just got nervous as shit - if you ever catch me on camera with that going on you'll get a big Asian middle finger along with a tirade of "I can't believe that fucking KKK racist bullshit").

Richard Belzer and Steve Schirripa's reaction to Hyche's bit?


I gotta give it up to them - seriously give it up to them - for telling Hyche that there's no place for ethnic stereotyping in 2008, and that if they had to watch 45 minutes of his bullshit that they'd kill themselves.

So would I.

Here's Hyche after getting his beatdown on national television (and not making the finals).

See ya.
