Blind Items Revealed #2

April 14, 2017

Just a couple of years ago, this standup comic turned A list mostly television actor was the talk of the town. Then, he had some PR problems that really didn't make it into the supermarket tabloids but that all of you knew.It turns out that for much of the past couple of years he has been quietly settling a bunch of potential lawsuits against him from women.

Honestly, it broke my heart to find out what a piece of shit he is. He was one of my favorite comics ever. I mean, it wasn't unexpected I guess, given what he act typically is. But it was really really disappointing. Now, I don't give a shit about anything he does. I wish the women would come forward even more than they already have.

Is he the father of Amy Poehler's ginger baby?

A lot of comics are really dark, troubled people. hence the humour to over-compensate. See woody allen.

There have been times where I thought: 'Hey, that woman desperately needs to see my penis!'
Then, my common sense kicks in saying, "She's probably seen bigger!"

I know: Self-deprecating meanest!

I think there have been allegations that he makes young female comics watch him masturbate or something like that.

@TellMeLies same here. So disappointing, but not much surprises me anymore. As I said on another post, I want women (and men when applicable) to keep coming forward and blow this shit wide open. It is way beyond time.

It will be interesting to see if this true.

I used to catch his show on FX every week. 💔

To Ben look at both sides of the, though: I don't think they realise what shitty people they are. And the behaviour we resort to tell a good joke (like even an inside joke) is ridiculous. Sometimes, I think, "is it worth it?"

Once I cracked a joke (before its time) about how I couldn't tell 2 people apart (it wasn't even that funny—it's an inside joke). And I felt compelled to post it sooner because something told me one of the two men (both elderly) I joked about would pass away soon (I literally believed he'd die the next day and I did spend the following week "waiting for him to die"). My gut told me, "TELL IT NOW, because if you tell it after one of the two passes away, it'll be a tasteless joke then!" A week after I thought it was a false alarm, Hugh Hefner (one of the two elderly men I joked about) passed away. I couldn't believe it.

To this day I feel like a cold-hearted bitch racing with a person's death to tell a good joke (again, it wasn't even that funny).

What did he do on SNL? I don't remember a scandal

Over-rated, anyway.
