    See, that was actually good. Maybe he needs to stick to just telling stories or some shit? Thats why I alway liked him as a podcaster, but his stand up special was awful. I wanted it to be good, but it just isn't.

    If only this actually happened like he explained it. He still wanted to fight after this loss. Rogan had to sit him down and explain to him for an hour how he wasn't a good fighter.

    His level of story telling is almost better than most comedians. Idk if it’s because he’s new at it but the amount of realness and truth in this is amazing

    Sometimes I don’t think parents realize how much of an affect their actions or words can have on their children. I mean he went out and got this job because of something that happened when he was just a kid and he thought it was the best way to get his dad to love him more.

    Dam man.. this was a so much more than just a story. This was symbolic in many ways. A humble fighter, a look into what it's like after you fall. Who's there supporting you. He didnt even have coaches to emotionally support him, who knew about a true fighters mind, both the champion and the loss. Your delivery was beautiful and honest. We all look to fighters for a reason.
    Thanks Brendan

    his special is really rough, but this shows that he can do stand up, its just too soon for a long special. but you can see he loves comedy and is trying to learn all the nuances but it takes time. the fact that he shouted out Ari at the end is enough to get some respect from me. great work

    Yikes, Brendan has a LOT of work to do on his stand up. It doesn't come off like hes telling a story naturally, embarrassing to see this because he's great on his podcasts and when hes a guest on other podcasts. He comes across alot less confident on stage

    I really like Brennan. We need a different category of comedy that based more on storytelling than punchlines. It's entertaining and slightly funny, but not hilarious. I love listening to Terrence McKenna because he tells good stories with a sense of humor--not a stand up comedian though. Same kind of idea.

    Wait. In his comedy special Schaub says they were watching Ace Ventura at the family reunion and his dad puts in the UFC tape. He also changed the story to his dad FORCING him to do it. Does he really think no one would notice he changed the story?
