Al here,

After hearing the "Fun Dude" on the Dream I was just curious about other's opinions of this wierd combination of the "almost" stand-up comedian and host-

"Let's give it up for............!"Or not??

You'll get no "likes" from me on the "Fun Dude". Total waste, poor jokes. He was a bit better this past summer than last year. Hearing that his replacement earlier in the year was a real horror

There was a fellow on the Glory last year who was great and even had an open mic 5 minutes of comedy that guests could sign up for. My son did it and it was great.

Wish I remembered his name but it was somewhat unusual.

I remember her on the Valor...but "The Fun Dude" on the Dream was the kind of person you just can't help but feel sorry forabsolutely- "NOT "

The Dude just kept goin...like digging his own grave, bad joke-by bad joke.

Could't wait till he brought the first comic on...who was great btw!

We decided he must know some higher-up in management.

On Liberty next Sept....

I can not name any names, It has been awhile that I have seen either a comedy host or comedian on a cruise that has impressed me at all.

With one exception have not been impressed with the 4 hosts we have seen.

Have liked the majority of the comedians though.

We had Tyson on the Freedom last a few weeks ago and found him to be great. I agree with the comments about the Fun Dude .....he wasn't funny and more irritating than anything else. Dead silence or groans within the crowd should tell them something when he's up there doing his act.

I think the host on Miracle's name was Shawn. He was pretty funny - "if you are easily offended, get the ---- out!"
