Hey bros!

Welcome to Twitter in Focus where media comes to die.  Today’s contestant is comedian, Richard Lewis, who often acts like he wants to die in his act.  Let’s see what kind of depressing hilarity he’s up to today.


January 21st:  “I used Viagra once and I got a cow-lick for four hours.”

Wow.  Why did you stand still for the cow?

January 22nd:  “I usually exercise by worrying in place.”

That is classic Lewis.  Richard, not Jerry.

January 25th:  “I’m suffering from bouts of contentment.”

I think that could be a bumper sticker.   A line of neurotic bumper stickers.  I think it could work.

January 27th:  “I only relaxed once in my life then suddenly suffered a panic attack.”

He’s on fire.  And by “fire”, I mean, intense therapy.

January 28th:  “I was having a great day until I woke up.”

This is the first time I’ve ever considered calling the suicide hotline while writing one of these.

January 29th:  “If LD doesn’t do another Curb we will find a place mid-way between our homes to meet weekly to mock each other.”

Good to know.  Hopefully someone will tape it on their phone and post it to YouTube.

January 31st:  “I was having such a great sleep and dream until my co-dependent, nut case ex crashed it.”

Is that the one from Curb?  Because she is hot.

February 3rd:  “I’d go to sleep now but would hate to miss out on a bad experience.”

Richard, as you imaginary agent, I suggest you plug more in the Twitter.

February 6th:  “There is no place like home so no wonder I was raised by wolves.”

Those were some neurotic wolves.

February 9th:  “Check me out on nothing and worry about yourselves.”

Well, that was kind of a plug.

February 9th:  “Oh Kids, if you never heard Dylan’s HIGHLANDS on Time Out of Mind it’s all ahead of you.”

Put aside about a half hour kids.  It’s a long song.

February 11th:  “Don’t put off today what probably won’t happen tomorrow.”

How do you cut yourself and tweet at the same time?

February 11th:  “My mother’s favorite prescription drug was Know-it-alls.”

Badum-dum!  Keesh!  Thank you folks.  He’ll be here all week!

4 hours ago:  “I’m full of self-esteem–if only I can find it.”

Another bumper sticker.  Think about it.

3 hours ago:  “On Valentine’s Day an ex of mine once bought me a chocolate handgun.”

I’ve seen one of those!

Okay, let’s rate Richard’s tweets.  He’s definitely putting some effort into this.  Sounds like his material.  Heard a little behind-the-scenes.  Overall, pretty good.  I give him a 7 for Mustness, an 8 for Insanity and a 10 for Style.  That’s an overall score of 8.3.  C’mon, follow Richard.  You don’t want to give him any more ammo for his therapist.
