    I came across this video of Mary Carillo while surfing Failblog, please take the time to view it all, as it is one of the best stand up acts I have ever seen in my life. I don't think I'll ever be able to listen to Carillo without thinking about this and laughing hysterically. Either she is the wittiest woman on the planet, or she took a massive dose of drugs before embarking on this.
    Cheers and enjoy:

    It is very hard to pick up sarcasm on the internet sometimes.

    Read some of the comments under the video-can't believe there are people out there who like her.

    Yes, it is, but you did well to pick up on it; looking back, it seems difficult to tell I was saying it tongue-in-cheek. However, I was completely serious about the drugs. Carillo never ceases to astound, be it by insane rants or incessant commentating.

    From a comedic point of view, it's just awful. The delivery sucked. It's just one massive buildup that has no punchline. Moms might relate, but that was ...ugh.

    I thought her performance was actually quite impressive.

    I'm pretty sure this is not unscripted, but hilarious nevertheless - thanks for posting. Mary should talk to Larry David about getting onto one of those episodes.:lol:

    200 mph shuttlecock!

    Mary Mary said that it takes 16 goose feathers from the left side to give the shuttlecock "an even ride"

    I liked hearing her say that...



    And yes, I did like her Seinfeld/Andy Rooney-esque take on 'backyard' badminton.


    (former Peabody Award & Sports Grammy Award winner btw).
