Cool it with the jokes
Shouldn’t someone tell Craig O’Neill and Ned Perme that they are not funny? It wouldn’t be so bad except for the fact that they are desperately trying to be. If you are going for laughs, you have to induce a smile, occasionally a chuckle, maybe even throw in a guffaw every great once in a while. If they were doing their “routines” to a live audience, they would be heckled. I don’t expect Richard Pryor, but someone should hire these guys some comedy writers.
If they keep going for humor, maybe Craig could do Abbott and Costello’s “Who’s on first.” Maybe Ned could shave his head to look like Curly of the Three Stooges. When he missed a weather prediction (as he often does), one of his cohorts could take two fingers, poke him in the eyes and say, “You numbskull.”
Or they could just play it straight. Not once did I ever see Walter Cronkite look into the camera and say, “Did I tell you the one about the priest and the rabbi walking into a bar?” GARY USELTON
