World’s Funniest Legally Blind Comic

June 30, 2012

Never in a million years did I think I would have to defend myself for calling my website “The World’s Funniest Legally Blind Comic!” Over the years, I have received random emails through my blog or my website http://www.brianfischler.com, some of an attacking nature some just pointing out that there are other legally blind comedians out there. So now, I am officially going on the record, there never was a vote that I was the World’s Funniest Legally Blind Comic! That’s right America, I self appointed myself that title. I didn’t even win it on a reality TV show, it was all my doing. I guess King James and I have a lot in common, as King James was really never appointed a King, in high school he just decided to start calling himself King James. It’s called a brand name and marketing yourself. My buddy Judah Friedlander is known as The World Champ, and guess what, he really isn’t the World Champ, although I think he is. When you work in an unbelievably competitive industry like comedy, you have to do what ever it takes to separate yourself from the billion other comic’s out there, and yes, that does include all the other blind comedians out there. I am well aware of at least six other blind comedians out there, and I am sure there are a lot more than that. I am even friends with a couple of them, and I bet ya they think they are the world’s funniest legally blind comics! I will even go one further, since I started on this endeavor in comedy my vision has severely deteriorated, and I wouldn’t even be classified as legally blind anymore, just blind! So my website is now false advertising, but thanks to there not being a web design program that works with Apple’s Voiceover for us non HTML coding experts, I have no way of updating my website. That’s right, my website hasn’t even been updated in about two years.

It just blows me away that people will actually take the time to send me an email attacking my website and my self anointing as the World’s Funniest Legally Blind Comic. People get a life, and do something constructive with your time. May be offer your services to blind people to help them edit their websites.

Bridges Burn Easily

May 13, 2008

Bridges Burn Easily

It’s amazing how easily bridges burn when you keep telling people to fuck off. Kenneth Lay died, how come he can get out of a life sentence, but I can’t. I had a friend, and he was just fired from his job, and was bitching to me about how bad his life was. He said his life sucked, but I was the one person he still would not trade places with, so I offered him some advice, I said, “well there’s always suicide” I have mastered the art of losing things. I have lost my sight, and now my hair, how come I can’t lose any weight? I just found out the Rabbi who Bar Mitzvah’ed me is in prison for child molestation, does this now make me Catholic? Late the other night, I heard a woman screaming at the top of her lungs out back of my apartment, “Somebody help me, somebody help me!!” I figured it was either someone being killed or making a movie. I would have gotten off the couch to check it out if I knew it was a movie. I was just told that smoking is bad for you. Does that mean when I get cancer, I can sure Marlboro because I was never able to read the warning on the pack? Thanks to this recent revelation about smoking being bad for you, I think I have accomplished my life’s goal. I am pretty sure that I have now broken all ten commandments. I am pretty sure that I got got the Thou Shall Not kill covered with my second hand smoke. I know a blind guy who never dreamed, then he was cured and could see, but now he can’t sleep because he has the worst nightmares. I used to have a Gateway computer, but I gave it to an illegal immigrant, it’s not that I hate illegal’s, I just really hate Gateway. I love it when I check into a hotel, and they ask me, “Will you be parking a car with us?” Didn’t life seem better when we lived in a world with sniglets?
