Denis Leary on Susan Boyle, Jon & Kate, and Heidi and Spencer
Way before the current batch of bullet-spitting comics, Denis Leary was emitting blistering barbs in between puffs of a cig, as everyone laughed while covering their heads.
And he's still at it. Check out this interview, where the Rescue Me star goes after Susan Boyle:
"I think she's a hobbit...I hope she comes back fucking crazy like Judy Garland on acid. I'd like to feed her a lot of booze and pills and just let her sing beautiful songs and threaten people from the stage."
Also, Jon and Kate:
"The first thing I always think about is the kids because they don't have any choice in this whole being famous thing. You've got eight monsters, man. Eight potential Susan Boyles coming up."
And of course, the immortal Heidi and Spencer:
"Why are these people famous?...Man, they're such morons. There's already a Baldwin. They should fly in all the Baldwins and just have them beat the crap out of Spencer and Heidi. (It would be called) 'I'm a Baldwin, We're Here to Kill You.'"
Dear God, I am completely appalled at how...funny that is.
