So apparently GQ’s latest issue is the comedy issue, and they assembled Tracy Morgan, Zach Galifianakis, and Paul Rudd to talk about what they find humorous. And while I like the entire article because it’s a bunch of funny dudes making jokes, I thought I’d share this exchange about which TV shows they think are funny:
GQ: What TV show do you think is funny?
TRACY: Brandy & Ray J.
PAUL: Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, that’s really funny. [especially when Rudd's on it -Ed.]
ZACH: I think if they put a laugh track on Intervention, it would be funny.
PAUL: Have you seen Hoarders?
TRACY: Hoarders is serious stuff, man.
GQ: There’s enough there, enough hoarders in the world, for there to be a whole season on TV about it?
PAUL: You have no idea how many hoarders there are. You could throw a stick and hit a hoarder anywhere.
TRACY: You gotta look at Lockup.
GQ: What’s Lockup?
TRACY: Oh man, this is subculture. Interesting. Guys washing their T-shirts out in toilet bowls.
ZACH: I don’t know if this is being racist or something, but there’re never any Asians on that show.
TRACY: Never! They don’t go to jail.
ZACH: Why? Why?
PAUL: They’re all too busy hoarding.
Oh man, “Intervention” with a laugh track. Internet: make it so.
Also, the excerpt above led directly to this exchange, which was my favorite in the interview:
GQ: All right, speaking of races, what’s the funniest race?
PAUL: The Iditarod.
Oh, Paul Rudd. I’m a little bit gay for him.
