    I am going to audition for America's Got Talent as a comedian and just want to say a lot of the shit you guys post and stuff has inspired some of my act. If any of you guys want to offer advice or words of encouragement that would be cool. I will call Sherdog out at the end of my act as a sign of my appreciation.

    Specifics on what you're channeling from SD would be nice. :)

    I trhow in a lot of I am no blank expert and just overall commentary on the art of trolling and negativity of the internet yet the beauty and seriousness that is buried underneath it all. Mostly focuses around life experiences and personal tribulations with light hearted advice. It is more philosophical like George Carlin except not as cynical, very optimistic.

    Tell the judges that you've never heard of them and you would like them to go die in a fire. Then threaten to touch them with teh jab (make sure you pronounce it "teh") if they don't let you through.

    Make sure to tell them they sound poor when you get rejected.

    I auditioned 3 years ago. Me and a buddy went, we are both comedians.

    We waited for about 7 hours, got to the interview process. Basically a 60 second interview with a random person who works for the show. They asked me my name, asked me if I had any kind of interesting back story, then asked for a small sample of my act. It was a little awkward since you are in this really loud room surrounded by other people auditioning and people waiting to audition, but I managed to get a couple of jokes out and made the guy laugh.

    They called me back a few weeks later but I didn't have the means to get to Dallas for the second audition so I missed out on it unfortunately.


    My advice is to come up with some kind of gimmick or sad back story. My buddy told them he was gay and had a falling out with his father because of it, neither is true. Plus of course if you have an agent and can get a private audition that is totally the way to go obviously.

    If you make it onto the show, don't let the producers fuck with your act. Seriously. They'll use you and throw you away if they can. I know someone who made it to the televised portion and the producers took advantage of them horribly.

    If Sherdog's taught me anything it's that you can't go wrong with mild racism and a pedo joke every now and then

    No doubt, the first thing they asked me when I auditioned was "What kind of struggles have you gone through while pursuing your talent?"

    I told them I was struggling with some pretty serious illnesses at the time (which was true) and I think that's pretty much the only reason I got a call back.

    I'd rather not be on tv than have the entire country think I was gay.

    That's why you'll never be a comedian.
