  • Much better than Stephen's first special!

    10
    When Stephen Lynch first did "Comedy Central Presents", he did it in the style of an elementary school assembly. With this special, he decided to do whatever the f*** he wanted! So the material is definitely a lot darker than the first special with his songs from "The Craig Machine" that had f-bombs all over the place.



    So to start off the evening, he sings about the brother of Jesus, "Craig".



    The second song he sings, "Vanilla Ice Cream", is all about interracial relationships. In this special, Stephen explains why he says the name "Thomas Jefferson" ("You see, kids, Thomas Jefferson...he liked to...how do I put it bluntly....f*** slaves!") I also liked it when someone shouted "Michael Jackson!" making him change the song!



    The third song was all about Satan, or "Beelz". This version that he sang had different lyrics and, probably for copyright reasons, does not have the snippet of "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" at the end.



    The fourth song is entitled "Little Tiny Moustache" all about a man's relationship with a Nazi girl.



    The fifth song is the only song not off of "The Craig Machine", entitled "Grandfather", a song that Stephen did previously at the World Comedy Tour on Comedy Central, of course, all about his desire for his grandfather to die quickly so that he can receive his large inheritance.



    For the sixth and final song, Stephen has help from his friends, Mark Teich and Rod Cone. That song is "D&D", the version heard on "The Craig Machine", with the additional lyrics by Rod Cone. The song parodies the cult phenomenon of the RPG, "Dungeons & Dragons."



    Overall, you'll have a fine time seeing this special!moreless

    • (during "Vanilla Ice Cream")
      Stephen Lynch: Thomas Jefferson! Nobody? You see, kids, Thomas Jefferson was the President of these United States of America, and he liked to...how do I put it...delicately...f*** slaves. (imitates the censor bleep) Oooh. I'm not advocating it, I'm not saying it was right. I'm just saying that's what he did and that's why it fit the subject of this song. Who else?
      Woman in audience: Michael Jackson!
      (audience laughs)
      Stephen Lynch: What? Did you just say, "Michael Jackson"? What are you, dyslexic? That would be a totally different song, man. (singing) "I only f*** white boys, the little boys and...Allegedly."

    • (first line)
      Stephen Lynch: Shut the f*** up!

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode ranked #15 in Comedy Central's 2009 Stand-Up Showdown Countdown.

    • This episode ranked #13 in Comedy Central's 2008 Stand-Up Showdown Countdown.

    • "Beelz" has different lyrics than on the album. Instead of singing about how Satan's son is a singing comedian, Stephen throws in a lyric that references the song "Special". Also, instead of singing "I'm the reason that the Boston Red Sox even had a chance," to coincide with the upcoming 2008 Presidential election, Stephen sings "I'm the reason that Barack Obama doesn't have a chance."
