Today’s Strip Search elimination is intense!
Wow what an episode huh? So what was it like from my point of view?
I already knew Erika a bit and had been a fan of her work for years. So I wasn’t surprised when she was incredibly funny, charming and talented. Abby I had never met in person and I have to admit I was blown away by how funny she was and just how great her comic turned out. I’m pretty sure it was the very first elimination comic strip that we actually laughed out loud at.
I keep an eye on all the comments and tweets, so I know there was a group of people that assumed that I hated Abby and that I’d send her home as soon as she walked into the the elimination. I’ll admit she had a lot to prove in my opinion walking onto that stage but regardless of what it might look like on the show, I took my role as a judge incredibly seriously.
Abby impressed the hell out of me not only with her comic but with how funny and quick she was throughout the challenge. She made a fan out of me.
She also told me to suck a dick.
Funny behind the scenes note about this episode. We had no way to heat up the ribs in the studio. Robert got them from a grocery store freezer so they were ice cold and tasted gross.
