And that nervous, failed comedian would go on to become…the Joker!
Once again, Dethklok has been proven right;
The only thing a comedian hates more than himself is his audience.
Prove to me that you can handle your job without leaving a path of destruction in your wake
I guess it isn’t a path until it has at least two or three more bodies marking it.
He’s only out cold, he’s not destroyed yet….. if anything they’ve saved him by giving him a moment to reflect on his life and consider another career
Sadly, he’s actually really good. This is the performance that would have finally broken his fear of the stage and led to a wildly successful sell-out tour of Gastonia.
Hey, he’s still alive.
He looks like a jester/fool.
If Pratchett’s taught me anything, it’s that the only thing less funny than a jester is a mime.
Preventing one from making jokes isn’t a crime. If anything it deserves a commendation.
People who talk about how mimes and clowns aren’t funny have obviously only seen shitty performers, because some of these people are geniuses at their craft. Heheh, he’s in an invisible box. Classic!
Best mime I ever saw choked to death inside an invisible jar.
He was going to do comedy.
No, he wasn’t. That was just a red herring.
He was planning on doing the Pytherese traditional fish slapping dance, but his partner didn’t show up.
Then he was going to use a herring aid!
This whole set up looks a little fishy, but I’m sure Gravedust and Bandit will give a knockout performance in the end.
I like the scale of this humor.
surely you’re jesting.
he could really use a cigarette in panel 1.
for some reason, i feel gravedust is going to channel carlin.
anyone else get that feeling?
As long as it isn’t late-career, “I hate the world and everyone in it” Carlin, I’m down with that.
Gravedust isn’t really the ranty type, though; he tends to use as few words, at least when speaking as opposed to journalling, as necessary. So I could see him doing more of a Steven Wright performance: one-liners, delivered in a perfect deadpan, standing quite still.
I was walking past a bar and it had a sign that said “Live Girls”. Good choice, I thought.
“I bought some batteries, but they weren’t included. So I had to buy them again.”
if anyone could channel anyone, it’d be gravedust.
No, Gravedust! You’re the Straight Man! The comedy duo is not complete! You need someone to bounce off of you! This act is going to faaaaiiiil!
the other day i was collecting souls- y’know, unfinished earthly business, undying vengance- i’m like ghost whisperer except with more beard. anyway, i come across these two gastonian guard spirits who are trying to pummel each other into the afterlife. kinda difficult when you’re made of ectoplasm, you tend to just slide straight through each other. anyway, these two guards are fighting, so i ask them what happened. the captain tells me that he and the private were out on a manhunt, searching for this escaped murderer. they’re out in the fields, searching for tracks. eventually, the private spots some and yells “man tracks! i’ve found man tracks!” the captain takes a look and tells him- “no way, those are kobold tracks if ever i seen ‘em.” the private is unconvinced,
“i swear by my boots these are man tracks.”
and while they were arguing, the new long range load-carrying steam-powered techno-carriage ran over the both of them.
I looked SO CLOSELY at that jester. For like…ten minutes.
Because the first thing I thought was “oh, great, they just cold-cocked Baron Splande, who happens to be fond of theater because he DABBLES.”
Guess that was a red herring.
Gravedust should stand there making terrible puns.
A bonk on the head. Now THAT’s comedy!
Every time you post I read it in Patrick Stewart’s voice…
It really is the best way to do it. The problem with me is that whenever I try to read something in a Patrick Stewart voice I end up reading it in a Sean Connery voice. :P
Nothin’ wrong with that. Sean Connery does sound like a manly Patrick Stewart.
Is he carrying a holy mackerel there?
No trout about it!
I read these and keeled over.
Sorry, guess I’m just hooked on puns.
should have thrown that one back.
He was just seeing if you would take the bait.
I’ve been fishing for some good puns, but I can’t think of any. Sorry.
I enjoy fish puns too, I just can’t kelp it!
That fish is only a red herring.
Man, these puns are crappie.
Guess she knocked him out…. just for the halibut.
the comedian was found stripped and unconscious…
i guess you could say that he’d run out of new material.
So the comedian had a rod, a reel and a fish, but no bait…
i suppose it wasn’t just his comedy that was lurid.
I can’t wait to see Gravedust in the hat…
Ya know, I just have to say this. It would have been simply awesome if she had stolen his fish and beaten him with it. Hell, she’s a thief after all.
Bandit looks much like Frigg in the last panel
Is “enjoying a private box” a euphemism?
… I’m sorry.
That last panel, for some strange reason, has me thinking that Bandit would have Anna Paquin’s southern drawl…
This…. Will not end well…. I cannot wait! :D
