Re: Light laffs

This cracked me up because it's a friggin Boomhauer in the wild. (should start around 1:46:00) I've been gradually working my way through the whole compilation.

But I feel it running the risk that all "entertaining disaster of a person" shows have, in that you can only laugh at someone fueled by alcoholism and drug abuse and cringey assholishness so long before it just feels sad and not funn...
