His latest show “what.” is a shining example of that, since with almost each and every bit he does he’s constantly putting himself down in the name of comedy. Burnham’s latest show, and his other shows that he has done, are always done through an on-stage persona that is both incredibly self-interested, as well as self-deprecated.

He makes himself the butt of almost every joke he delivers, whether it’s through song or through poetry. The whole first eight minutes of the show is a bunch of miming jokes, and one of the recorded jokes is constantly making jokes at his expense, such as “He has a giant head and tiny nipples,” and “You’re an asshole, Bo… You will die alone and you will deserve it.” In particular, there is one bit he does in his show that is called “The Left and Right Brain.” This is a song that is sung by his left a... ... middle of paper ... ...of control.

People thought laughter was good and Fred Sanford made them laugh without using all of the cuss words he knew to do it. These days, people think that cursing and making fun of people of other races is funny and that is just what The Chapelle Show does. The show comes on every Wednesday night at nine-thirty central time on comedy central with other discriminating shows such as South Park. South Park is a good example of racial discrimination because the only black character on there is a cook for a school.
Kramer plays the off the wall, slightly mental, wild haired, hyperactive type. Jerry on the other hand, is just Jerry. They all blend together to create a perfectly smooth treat for our eyes and ears. Also, because it is a comedy about events that the public can identify with, the sitcom instantly became a part of our television daily routine. I will elaborate on these theories responsible for Seinfeld's breakthrough and also try to provide some insight about why I love it.

It’s just so unpredictable because of how quiet you were, but then again so not surprising because you would always come up with these crazy ideas. It’s unbelieveable how far you’ve come. I will always remember the day you walked into the living room to tell us that we were allowed to come to your first comedy open mic. We almost laughed, thinking you were kidding. How was a kid that never talked to even his own family going to get up on a stage to tell a whole crowd a couple of jokes?
