    • I hope they do more things like this. Comedy has always been there through my life and I couldn't imagine what it would be like without the greats like John.

    • @baldo rodriguez I think they meant "death" as in his career, when he stopped working for a while due to his health when he was given a year to live. Thankfully that didn't happen & Johnathan had lots of people who cared & got/kept him on the right track :)

  • My dad took me to Vegas after losing a huge hockey tournament to get my spirits up. I was 16 but looked like a 19 year old for some reason and my dad snuck me into this guys show and it was the amazingly the best show so far in my 32 years of living! I bought his prank book and it has some hilarious party gags in there.

  • I was in Vegas in 2006, and I had a chance to see George Carlin at the MGM Grand, and I passed it up to se the Amazing Jonathan at the Golden Nugget. I think I made the correct choice.

  • I remember seeing Jonathan on TV so I was interested in this. The bit about Joel's childhood and drawing stick figures after his dad left - the way Jonathan laughs about it made me genuinely crack up. I find it uplifting when we can look back on rough times and make light of it.

  • AJ was way ahead of his time. I think my whole sense of humor was shaped around his comedy. For what it was at the time, it was cutting edge, even extreme and I couldn’t get enough of it. He wasn’t a male model, didn’t have washboard abs and was sloppy looking and slovenly and he smoked a lot of pot; just like me. I loved all his shit and to this day I still hold him in the highest regard. Thanks for putting so much work into this and sharing it for FREE on RUvision.

    • I'm guessing you didn't pay attention in school very well because that is not how it happened. Do you need to watch the movie again in a room by yourself?

      Anastasia SynnAnastasia Synn5 дней назад
  • Pretty good doc Steve. Although i have to say that i find the dynamic of Joel and Johnathan's relationship origins a bit strange.

    • @Steve Byrne very rare! Thanks for the doc man. Always loved watching Johnathan growing up.

      geostillo78geostillo785 дней назад
    • The only reason it's strange is because so many bad people are out there and unfortunately take advantage of those situations. The real reason this is strange is because that doesn't happen. It's a rare example of the good in humanity and the belief in helping one another along the way.

  • I’ve always enjoyed Jonathan’s brand of humor! I learned of this doc via Steve Byrne’s appearance on the Your Mom’s House podcast. I’m quite impressed with the quality of the production, now knowing this was an out of pocket budget based project. It was a fitting tribute to Jonathan. As for the idiots who felt the need to give this a thumbs down ... what the hell is wrong with you people? Best wishes to Jonathan and his family, friends and fans. May his remaining time with us be peaceful and fulfilling.
