Look at the comedic journey that Joey Diaz has put Lee Syatt on. Lee is grinding out here, he’s going to mics, he’s doing bar shows, he’s putting in his dues. It’s showing, he’s getting better and better.
Why Callen and Rogan have let Schaub do this after only three years is beyond me. It’s going to be awful. His “This is not happening” story was awful. It was just a quick way for him to brag and say he’s on Comedy Central.
Schaub has never done a single open mic. He’s never been bumped, he takes features out with him who wipe the stage with him. It’s a joke and a slap in the face to comedy.
He’s protected though and the comedians he’s surrounded by will let him ride this 15 minutes out. Trust me though, there’s comedians out here who are waiting on this to be released so it can be a lesson to comics not to do specials this fast in your career.
