Comedian Brian O’Sullivan succeeded in making a large audience laugh late on a Friday night. This comedian, who was from Los Angeles, had a large crowd laughing on Nov. 20 at 9 p.m. in the pub. He had rather dark and perverted humor but, regardless, was enjoyed by a big demographic of people that decided to go see him.
One of the lead contributors of Coordinators of Activities and Programming Events (CAPE), student Justin Terlisner agreed by saying, “It was a great event, a lot of people showed up, even though we had a mixed demographic, mostly everyone enjoyed it.”
Brian O’ Sullivan performed his comedy act mostly through singing, by parodying various well-known songs and putting twists on them as well as singing some of his own original songs.
He sung about many interesting topics while making jokes about them, including ones about dating websites, everything that existed in the 90s, and relationships. He parodied the songs of popular artists today including Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”, Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Getting Back Together”, and Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA”.
One song that he sung was referred to as “Mad Libs”, a parody of the song “Mad World” from the movie Donnie Darko.
It was an interesting new take on how to create a song. He did this by asking the audience to tell him various words that fit the description of the type of word he was looking for. The end result ended up being hilarious.
This guy’s humor unfortunately wasn’t for everybody; certain types of people that likely didn’t enjoy his type of humor ended up leaving.
However, his dark humor was able to please more than less of the people that decided to go see him.
