How many times in your life have you heard the phrase ‘there are no bad ideas/questions’? Too many to count, I’m sure.
It’s an adage that we’ve all been taught from the earliest age. Obviously, it’s designed to teach us to be good, inquisitive learners. But the fact of the matter is there are some stupid fucking questions to ask and we all hit a point in life when asking those questions is going to make us look like complete dumbasses.
This is of particular importance if you’re someone who interviews people for a living. I’ve conducted quite a few athletes and celebrity interviews over the years here at BroBible and beforehand I’ll always do at least the bare minimum of research so that I don’t come off looking like a complete jackass in front of someone who’s taking time out of their busy life to answer my questions.
Furthermore, I’ve always been very comfortable interviewing professional athletes and celebrities but I’ve always cautiously approached interviews with comedians. Why? Because they can murder you with words in an instant.
YouTuber uwho22 put together this incredible compilation video of comedians Bill Burr, Jerry Seinfeld, Norm MacDonald, and others absolutely destroying TV personalities for asking stupid ass questions.
I had no idea that ‘comedians murdering people with words for asking stupid questions’ was my favorite genre of video on the Internet until I stumbled across this video on Twitter yesterday but I’m so, so glad I actually took the time to watch it.
Nine times out of ten I’ll see a video and think to myself ‘eh, I’ll watch it later’ and never get back to it but for whatever reason, I stopped to watch this one and turned out to be one of the best parts of August for me.
Some of these dumbasses look like deer in headlights when they get shut down on their own TV shows.
