Is it still funni?

I love TV and I don’t spare my eyes for any thing to send bad signals to my brain.
I love Visat 1 because of their very great movies and serials they show especially Greys Anatomy , the show where medical professionals only sleep with each other( acknowledgments to my friend), but I love the Game, friends, girlfriends and all their investigative movies.

I watched an episode of the one show which dealt with Autism, Albinism (I love the way it sounds and I love their color) and excerpts of the new comedy show laugh a minute which I have some issues with.

David Oscar the presenter, a good friend of mine didn’t do anything but ‘bore’ me to the core.

He was on the show to explain to viewers the concept behind the show and its different aspects.
I think David looks very good now, rosy cheeks and all; I must say my friend u looked good!

David cracked a few jokes and sincerely I don’t think he is hot anymore, what kind of jokes were those?

Joselyn said something that I think she might not even know its weight, stressing on the fact that David is not the only funny person (comedian) in Ghana, this should make the producers of the show work extremely hard, yes he is not the only one and certainly not anywhere close to funny.

David jokes and excerpts from the show were dry and not punching, the beginning of his jokes is heightened and creates excitement to a certain level and drops especially at the end making the listener very disappointed and confused, this would be called an anticlimax in theatre..

I have always had an issue with David’s opinion about Nigerian and Ghanaian comedians. He made a point about how Ghanaian comedians are looked down upon which I believe is certainly not true.

I remember reading an interview from the showbiz some months ago about his displeasure of a particular event organizer not using him for comedy shows, event organizers are in for the money so if you don’t cut it ,how do you get in?

Even my “boyfriend” Yaw Sakyi gets a chance to crack jobs on big stages, and then I think everyone gets a fair chance.

Laugh a minute- The Premier

Facial expression
David’s facial expressions in the montage really puts me off, I sincerely believe that they are supposed to get us ready to laugh a minute. but in reality we end up hating the minute.

The presenter tries to crack jokes before introducing the clips, these jokes turn out to be unridiciously not funny, I wonder if the presenter and the producers of the show find them funny, if they do ,then we, no! I better talk for myself,my cousin, my D friend and I have lost our sense of humor.

The Foreign Clips
I was particularly shocked at this, how could they do this to us? What is it with these old looking and not funny clips, either copied from youtube or where ever. They could have a lesson or two from KSM. David’s commentary behind the scenes makes it even annoying.

Camera Angle shots
I don’t know whether to ask the camera man or the editor, I cant understand how whenever the presenter turns to the right or left camera, we see the movement before the shot. I mean he is instructed to look at the left or right camera before or after each paragraph, but in this case we see his back turned to us viewers before the shot is actually shown, please producers take note, I don’t think we enjoy seeing David’s profile when talking to us and suddenly we see his back whilst he is still cracking the joke

I think Visat 1 should be open to writers all over the country and not try necessarily to bring up their own concepts, with their platform they should give us better things to view in connection to their local content.

Don’t anyone try to get attached to my views, masa if u think other wise free your mind.

I personally o with every issue jay has brought up. The previous comments. David touch would not sell anywhere, and he keeps on say we should post funny videos of our friends to him. My question would be. When was the last time he received a letter from the post, and when was his last mail read. I guess not too long ago. That is to show the extent to which we have evolved so if people are not sending videos he should re think again and stop boring us. I have written software that can allow uploads of videos and picture directly onto his program and various strategy to adopt. Contact me at I hope this posting helps
