Showcases like that might try to be funny, or something, I don't really know. However, they end up actually just making a mockery out of HYO's. If you're going to host a HYO, there should be some professionalism involved. No no, I'm not saying it has to be like a job and you need to prepare and do this and that, just a little professionalism goes a long way. After all, if everyone just makes a goofy show for the heck of it, that takes space up from people who worked hard into creating their HYO and makes them wait extra weeks or months. That's just my humble opinion on the matter.
"Our dilemma is that we hate change and love it at the same time; what we really want is for things to remain the same but get better." - Sydney J. Harris

“For the premiere of season 30, CBS wanted to do a special primetime show. However, they asked that we also add a gimmick or a twist to make it truly special. I came up with the suggestion of taking the show on the road for the first time in its history." - Roger Dobkowitz

In fairness, there was one HYO emcee who did several shows built around the concept of strange prizes (I recall that one such prize was a casket). However, that was done competently.

As for this episode, it is certainly not high-quality but it is not down to the level of "Ilovesuperball's half hour MDS" either.

The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.
