Stand-up comedy @Club 99: Sorin, Vio, Costel si Traian Maicanescu [Review de stand-up comedy]

[Post published by Liviu, on Liviu's [Personal] Blog]

Am fost Vineri, 21 Februarie, la stand-up in Club 99 [site oficial]


Sorin, Vio, Costel si Traian Maicanescu


25 RON (exclusiv spectacol). In rest, consumatia se plateste separat, preturi normale.


2h (25-30 minute/artist, practic)

Limbaj, glume

A fost funny, am ras, dar au limbaj licentios/explicit, in acelasi stil precum show-ul de la Cafe Deko de demult [Liviu: blog post].
Inca nu inteleg de ce trebuie sa injure sau sa vorbeasca prea puternic licentios. Mai light licentios nu se poate? Let me put it this way: daca ar fi mai light, ar fi mai acceptabil pentru populatia feminina, dar asa nu prea merge. Ok, ok, business-ul merge bine asa, sala e plina (2/3 male, 1/3 female), deci de ce sa schimbi daca ai o formula castigatoare? Dunno, just saying. - Inca am senzatia ca o femeie care vine la un show de stand-up e (cu probabilitate de 80%) pentru prima oara acolo, pentru ca a doua oara nu mai merge... :))

Am observat ca se incadreaza in 2 categorii poantele:
  1. Misto-uri despre comportamentul feminin, chiar si atunci cand incearca sa faca misto despre viata de cuplu
  2. "Hai sa fac misto de viata mea, sa-ti povestesc (intr-un stil funny) ce viata naspa am io! (sau am avut acum 5 ani, in copilarie etc.)".
Ok, bine, dar altceva? Cand ma uit la Comedy Central vad misto-uri si pe alte teme... So, let's diversify the business a bit, shall we?


Funny, am ras, pentru mine a fost ok. Money well spent.

The Wolf of Wall Street, Frozen, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty [Movie reviews]

[Post published by Liviu, on Liviu's [Personal] Blog]

The Wolf of Wall Street [IMDB; en.wikipedia; cinemagia]

Great comedy. Entertaining.

Money, drugs and sex. (and a lot of swearing, but you have already read that somewhere else by now)
Immoral, unfair, breaking the law etc. - the main character just has a strong determination on making money!

Great script, great acting.
It might get some Oscars.

Frozen [IMDB; en.wikipedia; cinemagia]

Nice animation, nice songs, nice story.
Worth watching.
I liked it.

Disney still has to learn from Pixar how to draw characters, build a story etc. Must note that the intro raises to Pixar standards, which is a big plus for Disney, so keep up the good work :)

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty [IMDB; en.wikipedia; cinemagia]

Too much noise for nothing.

Let me describe you the Walter Mitty character: a (really) confused dude with respect to his own life objectives, who all of a sudden decides to travel to several countries in order to solve a matter of life and death situation (wouldn't want to spoil the surprise for you, would I?). Oh, and in the meantime he has a teenager-style crush on a confused & divorced lady who happens to have a 10+ years old kid, but also allows her husband to come around their house for things like repairing the fridge... In the end, Walter is so happy for winning her heart and having the privilege of holding her hand...
Please, Walter, just die and don't teach young people how to screw up their lives!

Dunno, maybe I just don't like confused men who screw up?

Btw, Forrest Gump was a winner! Maybe he looked like an idiot, maybe he talked like an idiot, maybe most idiots thought of him as an idiot... but when it came to doing things, he had the perseverance, consistence and determination of a winner! Think of Jerry Maguire at the power of 2.
