  • Stephen Lynch is a popular stand-up comic who presents his material through song.

    This episode is one of the classic episodes of Comedy central Presents. Stephen Lynch is a singing comedian, who presents his material in an original way. Oh, there have been singing comedians before, but Lynch approaches this show as if he is giving a performance in front of elementary school children. Of course, the material is highly inappropriate for kids, but WOW is it funny for adults.



    His songs are laugh out loud funny. From "Special Fred" to "Mighty Hermaphrodite", Lynch uses clever lyrics to make you laugh. The tunes are catchy and his voice is good. You get the feeling that if it weren't for his quirky sense of humor, he could have made it as a folk singer.



    After watching this episode, I rushed out and bought Lunch's 3 comedy CD's--all of which are just as funny (although they do contain even worse language and topics than his cleaner TV appearance).



    OVERALL: Excellent! Funny! Worth watching over and over again! There's a reason this was voted a viewer fave repeatedly.moreless
  • Stephen Lynch is so funny!

    If you have never heard of this controversial comedian then run out and go find something of his to watch because he is one of the funniest stand up comics out there. He actually incorporates singing into his act which is something that the comedic world doesn't even begin to ever include. But it works. He is however very controversial and tackles a lot issues that are touchy, some of his work may offend some people but it is all in good fun. He means no harm. And he does have some lighter stuff that is just as funny.moreless
  • Yes, a very SPECIAL episode if you know what I mean. His songs are great and it is the best episode of the series by FAR!!! Special Fred is the best song that I have ever heard. He is too funny for his own good.moreless

    Steven Lynch is an excellent comedian by using his singing. His stories are great and I would like to see him live in person more than basically any other comedian. BEST episode ever of Comedy Central Presents, by far. Just watch it and you will know what I mean, it is really a SPECIAL episode.moreless

    • Stephen Lynch (singing "Gay"):

      Here we are dear old friend
      You and I drunk again
      Laughs have been and and tears have been shed
      Maybe the whiskey's gone to my head

      But if I were gay
      I would give you my heart
      And if I were gay
      You'd be my work of art
      And if I were gay
      We would swim in romance
      But I'm not gay
      So get your hand out of my pants

      It's not that I don't care--I do
      I just don't see myself in you
      Another time, another scene
      I'd be right behind you if you know what I mean

      'Cause if I were gay
      I would give you my soul
      And if I were gay
      I would give you my whole being
      And if I were gay
      We would tear down the walls
      But I'm not gay
      So won't you stop cupping my... hand

      We've never hugged
      We've never kissed
      I've never been intimate with your fist
      You have opened brand new doors
      Get over here and drop your drawers

    • Stephen Lynch (singing "Taxi Driver"):

      I flagged him down at the corner
      And he picked me up at the light

      I told him where I was going
      And we drove off into the night

      "How's it going my friend?" I asked him
      Slowly he turned his head

      The taxi driver looked at me
      And this is what he said

      He said...
      [foreign-sounding gibberish]

    • Stephen Lynch (singing "Lullaby"):

      Hush, little girl
      Sweet baby don't cry, tonight
      Daddy is here and he'll sing you a soft lullaby, tonight
      Why can't it all be like it was before
      How can I explain why mommy's not here anymore

      'Cause daddy likes porno and $10 whores
      Daddy gets wasted and robs liquor stores
      Daddy likes rubbing against little boys on the bus
      I think that's why your mommy left us,
      Mommy left us

      Hush, little girl
      There is no reason to fret, tonight
      Don't mind the smoke,
      Daddy just wants to forget, tonight
      Soon it will all be like it was before
      Any minute, she will walk through that front door

      But daddy plays poker and drinks lots of beer
      Then he wants sex that involves mommy's rear
      Daddy has sores on his naughty parts oozing with pus
      I think that's why your mommy left us

      Please don't cry
      I swear I'll try
      To be here by your side

      Right after daddy gets home from the bar,
      visits his bookie,
      And steals a new car
      He'll drive to the strip club
      And if daddy plays his cards right
      He'll bring home your new mommy tonight

    • Stephen Lynch (singing Hermaphrodite): She's part girl, she's part boy
      She's got parts everyone can enjoy
      She's got more, she's got less
      She's got her man hood tucked in her dress

      Is she a mister or is she a miss?
      Does she stand up when shes taking a piss?
      She's my little girl, yeah, she's my little guy
      When I try to please her I get poked in the eye

      She wears lace and she wears flannel
      She watched football and the Lifetime Channel
      What's that buldge under her nightie?
      It must be hermaphrodite, yeah, hermaphrodite

      Some things are white
      Some things black
      Some girls wear makeup
      Mine shaves her back

      She is still beautiful, she is still fine
      It's too bad her package is bigger than mine

      She can't help her imperfections
      She gets jock itch from her yeast infections
      Who stole all my tighty whities?
      It must be hermaphrodite, yeah

    • Stephen Lynch (singing "Superhero"):

      If I could be a superhero
      I would be awesome man
      I'd fly around the world fighting crime
      According to my awesome plan
      And if I saw criminals trying to lie
      Hurting other people and making them cry
      I'd haul them off to jail in my awesome van
      'Cause I would be awesome man

      Now, Some criminals want you to be a criminal
      And they offer you things like drugs, alcohol
      But we know what to do, kids
      We just say 'No'

      If I could be a superhero
      I would be Drug-Free boy
      Telling the world of the evils of drugs
      And all of the lives they destroy
      Well I would take all the junk
      He's getting so high
      With their needles and bongs
      And their sticks of tye
      As I burn them alive I would squeal with joy
      Because I would be drug-free boy

      If I could be a superhero
      I'd be Immigration dude
      I'd send all the foreigners back to their homes
      For eating up all of our food
      And taking our welfare and best jobs to boot
      Like landscaping, dishwashing, picking our fruit
      I'd pass a lot of laws to get rid of their food
      'Cause I'd be Immigration Dude

      Kids, You can make up your very own superhero
      If you could, Who would it be?
      If I a superhero
      Would you be justice guy
      Making sure people get what they deserve
      Especially women who lie
      Like if a wife left her husband
      With three kids and no job
      To run off to Hawaii
      With some doctor named bob
      You can skin them and drain them of blood so they die
      Especially bob
      Then you would be justice guy

      Or you could be more sutle
      No, I didn't mean to be vague
      Give her the mad cow disease
      Let him die of the plague
      As long as they suffer for their terrible lies
      Especially Bob
      Then You would be Justice Guy
      Yes then you would be a super hero like me

    • Stephen Lynch: (singing: Special Fred)

      When I was,
      A boy of ten
      I had a very best friend

      Fred was kind
      with good intent
      but just a little different

      Oooh, Special Fred
      mama dropped him on his head
      now he's not so bright instead
      he's a little bit special
      just a little bit

      We'd play tag
      and he'd get hurt
      I'd play a soldier
      he'd eat dirt

      I liked math,
      and spelling bees
      fred liked talking to a tree

      ooh special Fred
      Mama dropped him on his head
      now she keeps him in the shed
      cuz he's a little bit special
      just a little bit

      I ran track,
      hung out at malls
      fred ran headfirst
      into walls

      I had girls
      and lots of clothes
      fred had names
      for all his toes

      ooh special fred
      mama dropped him on his head
      now he thinks
      he's a piece of bread
      cuz he's a little bit special
      just a little bit

      one day, when talking to special fred,
      he grabbed a brick and he swung at my head
      and as he laughed at me
      that's when I knew
      special fred just made
      me special toooo!

      Now I laugh as I count bugs
      I give strangers great big hugs
      next to me, fred is fine
      yeah, he's a f****in Einstein
      ooh special fred,
      now we're not right in the head
      now we're not so bright instead
      we're a little bit special
      just a little bit special
      that f***er fred made me special
      just a little bit
