“I know this is a tough call since Andy was the one who discovered Greg, but, Andy, you are not the talent and you are hurting the show.”
I don’t share your feelings about Andy being detrimental in
any way to the show. He too has a good sense of humor and is very quick; his humor is just of a different sort than Bill’s is, and I’m not sure it’s fair to make a comparison between the two. They bring different viewpoints to the show. Andy is basically a Libertarian, whereas as Bill was more of a leftist. Andy is a deeper thinker on issues and therefore is a bit darker in commentary; Bill was more flight of fantasy and a free thinker, quick on the draw with the witticisms.
Andy, I might add, was in the military, and that makes me automatically fond of him. I think Andy will do just fine over time, as he acclimates himself to his new position on the show. I wonder if the show will now hire someone to replace Andy’s old job doing the halftime show, etc. And I wonder if we will ever find out the real story as to why Bill left the show.
You just made my point for me. Nobody's looking for deep thoughts at 3:30 in the morning.
I share your respect for Andy's military service, but I wouldn't watch a comedy show featuring General David Petraeus either.
