Default "Stand-up for Drummers" on Netflix anyone?

This was one funny stand-up bit by Fred Armesen. All drummer jokes, and you had to prove you were a drummer by playing on a pad before you were allowed into the show. Lotsa laughs, seen it?

I saw it and bailed out after 18 minutes when he started doing the American accents. I gave it the benefit of the doubt with it being drum related and wished I hadnít, awful.

I stuck with it for longer than Woolwich, but yeah... This wasn't really funny to me. He had a couple of jokes that were sort of funny, but every joke felt old and stale, and he just kept jumping between wildly different stuff. He seemed to be going somewhere fun with a lot of his little bits, but then he just jumped to something different without anything materialising.

"Here's my impression of a decomposing fox". Wait, what?

Bailed out at some point around halfway after giving up hope it would turn into some kind of coherent performance at some point.

Thanks to DW, itís 1.5 hours of my life I wonít get back. Only interesting part was the history of drums with their different sounds....but that was a far less of an attempt at comedy.
