Talking Fred Armisen... “Stand up for Drummers”

Anyone seen this Netflix special yet?? I’m hearing it is very funny!! . Think I’ll watch tonight when the better half has retired for the evening... she hears enough drums.

I watched it today "With" my better half. It was quite good, especially when he played a kit from every era. He had them lined in the middle of the audience. Btw, it was for drummers only, before entering, you had to play a rudiment on a drum pad to prove you were a drummer.

I find Fred Armisen's stand-up humor problematic...I mean, I don't know what to do with it.

. But seriously... I really don’t know what to do with it. Jose’s shop in Portland, Revival Drums, gets a nice little shout out. Worth watching but I’m glad I didn’t pay to see it. IMHO.

, if you watched it on Netflix, you did pay to see it.

Cool Re: Fred Armisen... “Stand up for Drummers”

You don’t know who pays for my Netflix account... and we will leave it at that.

It might have been better if he had actually "played" something on those vintage kits that did them justice, rather than just his "shtick".

Like what, a five minute solo on each kit? I think what he did was fine. He should have left out the skit with Thomas Lang, that made absolutely no sense.

He is a strange dude... very funny in the right context. This was not the right context.

Net worth $8,000,000.00... strange all the way to the bank!

I thought it was pretty cool. To have a comedy special with a drum theme? Mainstream enough for non-drummers to still hold interest. When is the last time a tv show was dedicated to a drummer for the whole episode? Karen Carpenter, mid 70's?
