(via Comedian Grant Lyon (#SF00s) gets kneed in the groin by professional wrestler (Video))
[As a comedy enthusiast: Grant Lyon is a homie and a friend and this is bullshit. Forget the historical precedent (Andy Kaufman vs. Jerry Lawler), or delusions of kayfabe, this guy—and other big, drunk fuckers like him—don’t deserve to be in the same room or on the same stage as a comedian. I don’t know where the sentiment originated, but comedy clubs aren’t for tough guys to impose their testosterone. Comedy clubs are for people like Grant to hone their skills, give hope to the comics coming up underneath them, impress the comics above them and entertain a paying audience. Oh, and chicken fingers. Comedy clubs are for chicken fingers.
As a wrestling enthusiast: Fuck this guy DOUBLY. How are you going to dye your hair platinum and dub thyself “Nature Boy”, after one of the greatest of all time, Ric Flair, already stole that name from Buddy Rogers? How are you going to do a “cowardly heel” routine in REAL FUCKING LIFE!? How are you to take a bump and not able to take a joke? You sir/are a disservice to the great minds and talent breaking their backs across the country/world out of a love, respect or at least professionalism (it’s what the “pro” stands for!) Fuck you, Nature Boy. Wooooooo!]
