Tony: Once Again An SNL D-Bag Will Give Kansas City Improv Geeks False Hope

Word just came down that Overland Park native and Saturday Night Live comic Jason Sudeikis will be the guest of honor for the Plaza Lighting ceremony on Thanksgiving night.

I guess this is a big deal for those folks not doing anything better than watching late night TV on the weekend.

However, I can think of nothing that will do a greater disservice to the people of Kansas City.


Well, for starters Kansas City has a horrible record when it comes to local talent going on to bigger and better things. This cowtown seems to smother attention on folks with even a modicum of pop culture success thereby killing their ambition to push forward and do greater things. See: David Cook.

Sudeikis is sorta funny, but at this point he’s not even a decent character actor and he’s simply a familiar face who makes cameo appearances in crappy date movies.

It gets worse: We’ve already discussed that Kansas City Improv isn’t funny and it’s really kind of tragic and sad. Well, this appearance will undoubtedly inspire all of the local comedy geeks to reach for the stars or at least to keep on trying to pick up a check from NBC rather than perusing the more realistic option of finally breaking down and taking that job at Hot Topic.

I expect no less than 2 dozen Improv geeks (and maybe a few of the moderately attractive women they hang with) to show up and laugh way too loud at every quip coming from this mid-level TV comedic actor while the rest of the crowd is more interested in avoiding getting killed or raped on their way back to the car.

Given the fake attendance number for The Plaza lighting and now their obsession with faux celebrity ALONG WITH a horrible economy, this should make the start of the X-mas season in KC even more unbearable and typically full of KC false expectations and hope. My only quandary throughout this entire hot mess is whether or not KC Improv geeks are more lame than David Cook fans. However, since this is the “season of giving” they both should get the benefit of the doubt for being equally hopeless and without the ability to discern their own talent or that of minor celebrities making the trip back to this cowtown.

    Awesome post. Tony, you really know how to make your “audience” understand that you’re familiar with a guy. You can’t even spell his name correctly in your post tag, so we know how familiar you must be with his work. You must be really credible.

    you know, i think Jason Sudekis is pretty funny. But what comes to mind first when i think of him is that he just seems like a decent guy. I wish him well.

    I actually think Jason is funny–KC should welcome him home with open arms.

    Jason is funny, David Cook is lame. American Idol = gag city.

    Plaza lighting needs something NEW – anybody can trace the border of a house or building with Christmas lights…take a cue from bigger cities with REAL downtown Christmas lights, CC Plaza.

    Tony, I see guys on here calling you all kinds of racist names and spewing hatred towards you. I always give you the benefit of the doubt and say you don’t deserve it. You don’t deserve it, but you ask for it. Every blog you write is negative. I think you do it on purpose for publicity or something. Why else? Are you that miserable that you have to hate everything? So what you don’t think the guy is funny. Obviously some folks do hence him doing so well. Good for him! Cool to have another positive light on KC, instead of hood rats shooting each other.

    I like Sudekis.

    My question is, what do you give a shit about, Tony? Really, you write 2-3 posts a week about how this or that sucks, but you never write about anything in this city that you like. And that’s where you miss the difference between criticism and petulant whining: a critic, even Whitlock, will take a stand FOR something. All I’ve seen out of you is the whining.

    Tony! Where’s the titties? This seems like a good match; lame actor, lame lighting ceremony. I think the best guy to flip the switch would be Jerry Mazer.

    Why always so angry Tony? If KC sucks so bad and you are so awesome, LEAVE!

    Tony-Toni-Tone…man nobody gets you. If the PMA had any sense they’d invite military from the region to come throw the switch instead of a D-List D-Bag. But then again the peeps that make the trek to The Plaza will be impressed to be in the presence of someone on the talking picture box. Is the PMA buying carbon offsets to make up for all the global warming these damn lights will create?

    tony…such grace and style from such a
    dirt bag.
    Now..lets throw in that the owners of the plaza
    are personally responsible for slavery in the
    1800’s and that they should immediately pay
    reparations to the ancestors of slaves with
    gift certificates from Halls and Armani.
    You continue to show what a loser you are.
    Do you ever come out of your moms basement?
    Do you ever have a date with a reall woman
    and not a blowup dolls.
    Tony…you are always a joke with these posts.
    Noone can truly believe this crap…unless you
    are a worthless piece of shit.
    FYI: David cook has done very well in the last
    year…financially/professinoally/and has been
    a real sense of pride for this town. He accomplished something…he won something…
    he came out on his own time for many charity
    event…he was honest and knew where he came
    from…his music was solid. He was successful
    in the music world…he had millions of fans…
    he made an impact in just one short year…he
    made millions of dollars…now..what have you
    done in the last year. tell us all you

    Jason Sudeikis – David Cook. I don’t see how thesloyo
    e even compare, except their both from the KC suburbs.

    Sudeikis is really funny. Joe Biden, two a-holes, the one-on-one skit with LeBron where he says, “How old are you? 22? yeah go over in the corner and have a juice box the adults are talking.”, Floyd on 30 Rock — the guy’s really funny.

    The above clearly indicates that Tony lost a girl to an improv guy (which is like losing a girl to a RenFest guy). Otherwise, he would call their women “ugly”, “fat” and “white”.
