Blind Item #8 - Reader Blind Item

This stand-up comedian is known as a “comic’s comic”.  He started on that long running show that launched so many careers and  has had a few failed TV series since. He is still probably most famous though for his stand-up.  He also has a problem very similar to another stand-up comic even more famous whose career has been completely ended.  Like that comedian, he likes to force women to watch him do things.  Unlike that other more famous comedian, he will pay the women money when he is done.  This may be why it has not come out yet although two of the women at least are talking to that female attorney who specializes in these types of cases.

Well the ladies are talking to Gloria, for sure.

sandybrook said...

Colin Quinn and Louis CK?

John the peon said...

Ahhhh! Not Colin!

hhstarr said...

Or Kevin Nealon? Norm McDonald? Colin's a good one.

Herbert Arnold said...

the long running show i think is snl but idk which stand up in a few failed tv attempts.

J said...

So they agreed to let him do whatever for money, which he paid them as agreed. Now they regret the choice they made, and we're all gonna be told to get real outraged over it.

Must be nice, this option to reframe your own choices as always some oppressor's fault.

MDAnderson said...

Norm McDonald??

Sara, Making It Work said...

Colin was famous before SNL, I believe .

Sara, Making It Work said...

I'll second Norm MacDonald, but I'm gonna think on it for a bit...

Misti P said...

In all fairness, the blind says they were forced but then paid afterwards. Doesn’t say they agreed

gauloise said...

Chris Elliot. Started on the old David Letterman show.

Did a few things but never hit it super big and is more of a comics comic. His stuff is a bit too intellectual / for the mainstream.

Humor Me said...

@Herbert - I'm thinking the Tonight Show. Back in the day, Johnny launched everyone.

sandybrook said...

Norm is a good guess but I think his big fail was talk show host?

gauloise said...

Wasn't Norm's fail cause he said something racist or sexist?

Doobots said...

The blind says he forces the women to watch and then pays them. They're not making a choice to watch whoever this guy is wank. Then he hands them money which makes them sound to have been willing participants should they tell their story, despite them not asking or agreeing to any of it to take place.

Mark said...

Guys, I think this is Gilbert Gottfried. Which, yuck.

Doobots said...

Misti P - you beat me to it!

gauloise said...

Bobcat Goldthwait? First major appearance was on Johnny Carson.

He is kind of an odd duck and I never found him funny, but other comedians sing his praises.

Kay said...

Exactly. Paying someone after the fact hardly constitutes an agreement, @J. It's a pay off.

But no need to worry. You wouldn't be outraged on the women's behalves either way!

Sd Auntie said...

Gilbert is too cheap to pay anyone! He has a girlfriend. I think he is hilarious!

J said...

So he strokes it, the girl says yuck, he says wait, I'll give you $ if you don't go to the police, and the girl doesn't go to the police. Right?

As always, first question is "what did the cops say?"

Second question is "why didn't you go to the cops?"

Betts said...

I think it's filthy Bob Saget

Stevie Nixed said...

They didn't have a choice. Whip it out and then pay? Nope. That's wrong.

Kay said...

No. First question is, "why are you (comic/actor) such a scumbag rapist/abuser?"

just sayin' said...

Per IMDb, Colin Quinn doesn't fit the "a few failed TV series since" SNL. At least as a performer. He was a writer on "a few".

J said...

But Kay, no one knows to ask that question because the victim became a vendor when she sold her silence.

When she did that, of course, she also made clear her complete lack of concern for any others who might face the same situation later.

texasrose said...

Didn't realize this type of conduct was so prevalent in celeb world but it apparently is common.

Kay said...

Explain to me why you think a victim owes anything to anyone else?

Kay said...

Also, when she does come forward and press charges, make police reports, etc she isn't villainized at all, is she? Definitely not by people like you, who will first blame her for putting herself in that position? For taking a pay off (which she probably didn't want in the first place)?

DDonna Tarttty said...

I hope not Norm McDonald.

J said...

No, Kay. That would be a waste of time and boring.

GarageRock said...

Long time listener, first time caller.

How about Dennis Miller? He seemingly fits the “comic’s comic” description. He started on SNL. He had his own show which didn’t last. He was on Monday Night Football which was a complete disaster. I’ve always thought he gave off a creepy vibe. Seems like the type to do this.

Kay said...

Which differs from your other predictable comments...how?

Bumtitty said...

Maybe Doug Stanhope ? I saw him live recently and he just didn't seem very funny or interested in what he was doing (and he used to be amazing)

Unknown said...

Miller isn't a "comic's comic", in any way.

That label is applied to guys like Colin Quinn, Gottfried, Hicks.

Most likely an SNL cast member. Quinn and Gottfried are both likely, and neither would surprise me. Comics are the degenerate's degenerate, they, as a collective whole, are not warm, healthy, happy people.

Cary Gaul said...

Tiger Woods

Unknown said...

The only big show Stanhope was on was The Man Show, and that show didn't "launch many careers", and it didn't start his career. This is almost certainly an SNL alumni.

If you want to know what's going on with Stanhope, just listen to his podcast. He's a degenerate alcoholic, is beyond burned out, and is "retiring" from stand up, again, so he can sit in his small town in Arizona and drink himself to death.

If he was doing stuff like that, he'd admit to it. He's admitted to things most people never would.

LulzMcQueef said...

If he's got money, or there's a perception he has, then a lawsuit will be coming his way soon. I'm sure.

Mo said...

I can think of a dozen suspects easy and only half of them are already dead

Do Tell said...

Someone that got their start on Carson's Tonight Show. I think it's an older person.

Aquagirl said...

Is he just offering the money or are they accepting it?

Do Tell said...

It doesn't matter whether he is offering or they're accepting. The point is that he is forcing them to do something.

Marisa said...

Seinfeld

Daniel Smith said...

Jim Jefferies

Gylly said...

Kay FTW.

Schneiderisnext said...

John Mulaney fits, though I hope it's not so

BluePedal said...

Surely this is Norm McDonald or Colin Quinn.

It doesn't matter. They didn't agree and then had money thrown at them. The agressor is the problem not the victim whether or not they kept the money.

Paul Saint John said...

I hope no potted plants were hurt.

Adrian Grimples said...

@Schneiderisnext had the same thought, and the same 'hope not' feeling

Julie said...

Ray Romano or Jerry Seinfeld

AAnon said...

The description sounds like Ricky Gervais but I don't believe it was him so maybe Stephen merchant, the other creator of the office. Or Larry David because he probably would be awkward like that. #Speculation

Zeroh Tollrants said...

Norm McDonald is known as *the* comedians comedian. Other comic-louis CK.

Viking Song said...

J is triggered again. Fuck off, J, you miserable, misogynistic cunt.

Aquagirl said...

@HotHotHeat, @DoTell: I am in no way supporting the aggressor, but taking money, before or after the ‘event’ could be considered ‘agreement’ in a court of law.

kelli grrrl said...

What about Richard Belzer?? Law & Order has launched lots of careers. He’s got a long list of credits on IMDB but I’m not sure if any are failed sitcoms, guest star spots or what.

anne mott said...

Norm MacDonald. he's had 2 sitcoms. He is def a comedian's comedian. He's Canadian though--would it say "foreign born?"

mary lamb said...

J has MAJOR pussy envy. All the fucking time. Oh, and he hates, no, HATES women beyond belief. That's what happens when you're too ugly to get laid, EVER.

mary lamb said...

Jerry Seinfeld. I've heard of this kind of behavior from two different people who've never met each other.

DRK said...

Bob Saget seems like a good guess here.

AL233 said...

I wouldn't say Colin Quinn or Norm M.ars known best for their stand up. They are best known for SNL.

Chase said...

So what you are saying here is this could be anyone of 5-6 guys. Got it.
Norm, FORCING women to do anything? I call total bullshit.

Comedians are degenerates anyway. All of them. They are damaged people. But if they pay and the woman accepts the money. How exactly is that FORCED? By definition it is a business transaction.
ENTY, fuck off when your logic contradicts the words in the blind.

Undercover_LBD said...

I don't think it's Dennis Miller, but I would *love* it. I used to love him on SNL, but he's turned into such a dick that I'd love to see him get taken down.

Honey West said...

This is totally Norm Macdonald.

Rosenthal said...

AAnon. None of it sounds like Ricky Gervais! You are so far off it's embarrassing. No long running tv show, no failed tv shows, Not most famous for his stand up??? Mental guess.

HellnoKitty said...

I hope not Chris Rock. He is the comic's comic.
