    How awkward was it? I don't think it was staged as he looked way to pissed at some of the comments, it was hard to watch but still funny!

    Staged, but Rener did a good job looking irritated. A few times he almost lost it though. You could see him wanting to laugh. For guys thinking it was real, I would think Rener has a better sense of humor and doesn't take himself that serious. Him being irritated was part of the act.

    Staged or not, it just wasn't funny at all. He needs to get someone to punch up his jokes.

    The Frank Shamrock one was by far the best one

    Just watch it.
    Frank kind of knows it's supposed to be an act but still Laranja hits on some raw nerves and u see Frank cringing and getting pissed.
    Its classic.

    You can tell by first minute when the tone is set for the interview.

    Jesus this guy is still trying to make this cringey shtick work? Rogan kicked him off his show like ten years ago for not being funny.

    I generally don't find Laranja funny at all, but damn this is hilarious. Have always been a fan of Frank but he's the perfect mark for this schtick - takes himself so seriously and just can't take it. LMFAO at 13:42 Frank is getting pissed and says, "Listen, you've called me short, old, Mexican and metalmouth so far. Wherever you want to go, I'm with you brother."

    "Please tell me Ken's not Mexican too." "You wrote a book, 'MMA, by a Dummy' right?" So much gold in here.

    Wow, that was sort of rough to watch. I couldn't go beyond the first 10-20 seconds. Man, Joe was being harsh.

    I thought his Rener interview was pretty funny, for the same reasons you outline here. Rener takes himself and his projects super-serious, so seeing Laranja make light of them was pretty funny to me. I don't know if Rener was actually disgusted or not, but if he wasn't, I think he did a good job acting the part.

    Rogan is being a dick there. He started with standup,does he think people need to all listen to 3 hrs of him giggling about weed and dmt or talk aliens with Alex Jones? Could have given him 10 minutes.

    I lost it on the Frank Shamrock interview when he cut to a PSA about how to defend yourself with IBJJF rules.
