Joe Rogan: Strange Times (2018)

download (4)

Joe Rogan is back with his rather brash brand of comedy. This time around he will attack such topics as mens activist, cats being psychotic murderers and the fact that a woman invented the dishwasher and a man invented the tampon. Both of these are true by the way. Dishwasher was invented by Josephine Cochrane and the tampon by Earle Haas. Another story he tells is about a girl giving a BJ, getting stabbed which somehow results in her becoming pregnant and having a kid 9 months later by C-section because she has no vagina. Also a true story, I checked.

He of course tells these stories in a much more fun way but I am just saving you the time of googling it like I did. This one definitely  comes recommended. Best wishes, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Bert Kreischer: Secret Time

download (2)

Many of you may know Bert as the guy on Facebook and YouTube that told the story about having accidentally joined the Russian Mob. This time however, he is getting drunk and telling secrets. He covers various tops from how as a parent he now knows how you can end up dropping your kids off at school while you are drunk to how he ends up giving his wife multiple pairs of pajamas for Christmas.

Honestly this is one of the funniest stand-ups I have seen in a very long time and you would do well to watch this. From start to finish Bert had me laughing, and that is rare these days from a comedian. I whole heartedly recommend this one, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Tom Segura: Disgraceful (2018)

download (1)

Tom Segura is a guy I never really watched before, not for any particular reason besides I had never known who he was. I admittedly wish I did. The guy is actually pretty funny, covering topics such as racism, pop culture and weirdly it actually isn’t the sort of shock humor you would expect. For example he makes the joke about people getting hurt is funny but a person with a disability isn’t, except sometimes it is. He uses the example that if someone gets hit in the head and suddenly speaks his normal language but not with a funny accent, it is funny. This is true, it is a rare but real thing and it is hilarious.

There is some swearing involved but there isn’t anything all that offensive in there. I wouldn’t exactly call this a family program, don’t toss this on for the kids. However if you want some sort of adult oriented comedy show without off the wall and insanely offensive comedy, this is worth watching. Best wishes, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Lucifer: Comic Compared to Show

lucifer

So when the show Lucifer came out I decided it was a cool concept. The devil gets sick of hell, moves to LA, ends up helping the cops. Turned out it was based of a DC comic (and later printed by vertigo comics), but as a guy that wasn’t big on comics I didn’t want to run out and buy a bunch of them I said screw it and just watched the show. The show was pretty awesome, so I decided to read some of the comics. Now clearly there was going to be some fairly large differences. There always is. Now a few seasons in and about 10 comics in here are some of the bigger ones I have come across.

First and foremost, show while not for kids is pretty safe for teens. The comic however is pretty R rated. Not just nudity, but its pretty violent with Neo Nazi skin heads jamming a bottle up a gay mans..well use your imagination.

Another difference is Mazikeen, while in the show is a demon that takes the form of a beautiful young South African woman with insane physical skills, you rarely see her as an actual demon. In the comic however, she wears mask over one side of her face to hide her skull. Her physical skills and combat prowess is still there, and she still kind of misunderstands many social ideas.

Another big one is Amenadiel himself, who may have undergone the biggest change of them all. In the comics he is kind of borderline evil white angel that seems to think he knows exactly what god wants despite what god has said or done in the past. In the show however Amenadiel is a Black angel struggling to please god (father). The 2 characters may as well be 2 different angels all together.

Finally there is Lucifer Morningstar himself. He is also quite a bit different but not as extreme as Amenadiel. Lucifer is still pretty much overconfident and self-centered. But he lives up to the being evil portion more in the comic, in fact he actually manipulates and kills people quite often pretty early in the series.

Both the show and the comics are vastly different, so much so that watching/ reading one won’t really do much to the story of the other. The comic doesn’t even have Lucifer as a detective. Regardless of which one you check out tho, you will enjoy yourself. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
