Study is becoming what I initially predicted – my Fargo, in which a retreat into weirdness somehow strikes a chord with audiences that my more mainstream (relatively) fare totally failed to impress.
Last night at the ROTFL ( “Gong Show for the Internet”), Study was shown and tickled the applause-o-meter enough to allow for Channel 102 to eventually dominate the contest (with other selections Fun Squad and Space Guidos). Weirdly enough, his competition was the previously blogged Comics Curmudgeon (who should have show the Mary Worth film series and flattened Study—I know where my bread is buttered)
Tony Carnevale, representing Channel 102, reports “In round 1, “Welcome to My Study” edged out a Powerpoint presentation on penis-enlargement spam by the Comics Curmudgeon, who had come all the way from Washington, DC. (The applause levels were extremely close, though, and cohost Reggie Watts had to select the winner. And after he did, it seemed like the hardcore Curmudgeon fans wanted to tear me limb from limb.)”
Additionally, Comedy Central’s Insider (staffed by friends-of-102) plugged Study the other day.
