    Josh Gad could star in a biography of Jack Black - or the other way around.

    He says RAYANAIR and the people groan and threaten to faint ... yes, that's how good they are! Their concept is crap! I have never had a flight that was so late because of the airline's incompetence. The staff treat you like relatives who must know that things are not going better. Take EASYJET, they are cheap too, but at least they trying as good as they can!

  • disky

    That was excellent.

  • randomlineofletters

    Wait he paid 100 bucks for a Ryan Air ticket BEFORE they screwed him?? Those tickets are supposed to cost like 19,99 before they screw you

  • Yenkin2001

    Avenue 5 is a very funny show, my wife and I have really been enjoying the comedy.

  • Melaninenial

    His Italy story is much like mine. Given a relatives house to stay in, proceed to break the bed whilst sitting down to put shoes on. Having to explain to (now) wife’s grandfather so he can interpret to the Italians that the newly engaged couple broke the bed... also no home improvement stores exist so they needed to find a woodworker to replace a wooden beam - nearly $100 what would have cost $5 here. To cap off the trip, my wife contracted a mosquito virus that hadn’t developed in the states yet and was out of commission for 6+months...

    Hugh Laurie is an asshole, he’s very rude in the UK and his US accent is really not that good

    Am I the only who thought Josh Gad was annoying? I think people don't see it because they hear "Olaf's" voice and since they love the character, they believe that Josh Gad is like him too. To me, it seemed like Stephen was upset and was ready to boot him off his stage lol

      He won the sarcasm battle back in 2017 in his interview for Murder on the orient express, I bet my ass Stephen was like "next time I will not let you get away with this ,Gad..."

    During my wedding in India, I insisted they turn on the AC because I couldn't handle the heat. After that, because it was a Hindu ceremony, the smoke started to build up in the room from the Homa. Because of that, I asked my father to get my asthma inhaler. He asked me how it would look if the bridegroom were to use an inhaler during his wedding ceremony. My retort was to ask him how it would look if the bridegroom were to faint dead at the wedding ceremony.

  • pleappleappleap

    The highest praise I can give Josh Gad is that, every time I see him perform, I completely forget he's an actor and just see the role. For example, in The Internship, the thought went through my head, "Did they get an actual Googler to play this role or something?"

    Me: Oh, this guy's show sounds pretty cool, I'll have to wat-" Stephen: It's on HBO!" Me: Well, nevermind, then.

    That clip was great, I'm sold. I wonder how much of that was scripted and how much they made up. People don't realize Hugh Laurie is a comic genius. Him doing house would be the equivalent of Bill Murray doing a drama for years in Britain and them thinking here's a dramatic actor.

    I always mistake Josh Gad for that other much much funnier version of him from Superbad. Edit: I wanna say Jonah Hill?

    Not to defend Ryan Air,but 2000 Euro story is pure BS. You're only allowed 3 (?) extra bags, each would be like extra $50

      Jon Batiste and the band are always doing stuff like that. I love it. I just don't think most of the audience appreciates how great they are.

      Okay, I’m not cool enough to figure it out: why?
