Onstage, under bright light, he's trying with all his might to be funny. Offstage, under cover of darkness, I'm cringing, embarrassed for him. And, for some reason, myself. I want him to off the stage so I can stop wanting him to get off the stage. Someone else, please, replace him. Please make us all forget the strain of his desperate trying.

Oddly enough, he doesn't appear embarrassed, although everyone in the audience is thinking he should be. I don't know what's worse -- that he doesn't know how terrible he is or that he thinks he's doing really well.
