    Steve seems to have a tendency to tell people he's on TV. Is this true or make believe? Because I've never personally seen him on TV unless he's extremely local to where he lives. But it's not like I've seen him on Comedy Central or anything. He does realize that "on TV" means you either have a TV show, a special on a private paid network, or are appearing on someone else's show. But if you're just recording your standup to go on your own BR-channel or something, that's not the same as being "on TV."

    What I think is.... that you are a so so comedian, and that you actually count on the hecklers to break up the show to distract from the fact that your material is weak, and that you are not actually that funny. Then... you make your entire youtube channel about heckling. Pretty smart, as your stand up routine does not seem to cut it on its own. Is this entire heckler ploy actually paying the bills? I guess it must... but its getting tired.

      +Railgun Sharky Well you are right, and I hope he sends you tickets to his next show for defending him so well. Im done, because we are both arguing with strangers and our words actually mean nothing in the larger picture of our lives. I will unsubscribe and maybe he will block me so I dont get notifications on his next heckler show.

      ​+Truth is Have your take on it, but people have a lot of fun at his shows, and if he needed hecklers to stay afloat he'd likely put more energy into his yt than touring. His heckler channel's just the tip of the iceberg. Even if he did plant hecklers, his material outside of that's still entertaining. Comedy's a matter of taste. Every comedian has a fanbase.

      +Railgun Sharky Maybe not this one .. but his entire channel is based on heckler interruptions, and to be honest, he does not do a great job of dealing with them. I guess at some point soon people will just show up to heckle him, and I actually think he wants that. But once he gets really known by the general public as the guy you should heckle... then thats all that will happen at his shows. His only option at that point will be to tape shows with canned laughter...which in his case would be appropriate.

      ​+Truth is The interruptions undeniably threw off his rythm in this vid and made it difficult to pick up the pieces and get his show back. To a point where he was messing up his lines and people shouting random words were overpowering the show. There's no way this was planned.

    So admittedly, I had thought some of the interruptions you got were staged and it was just apart of your skit. However, seeing how genuinly frusterated you were I can kind of get a good idea of how other comedians might feel in your shoes. Either way you delt with the interruptions really well, and I had some good laughs. Thanks for another wonderful video and have a great day.

    The production house on this "special" needs better blood. This looked like shit! No backlight, variable ambient light... goddamn. If it's better during the final cut then this clip should have waited to be presented. This shit production is more amateur than my own comedy act. It's been weeks since I watched one of his BR-channel videos, so, it won't be too difficult to ignore his Netflix special. Oh... wait...

    2 meses atrás man. You never had to work yourself back into your own material? That's what has made your claim to fame. I thought you thought fast? Also, if this is a "TV Special" then you might want to invest in cable. I may be an asshole but I can't be the only fan who is tired of your crutches. You're a decent comedian, a good professional entertainer, but this is just... gross. And boring. Get back to good material instead of relying on the audience for attention. I assume that's not what you mean to do but it's been years since you haven't.

    IDK, I'm starting to think he picks people out of the crowd that are murmuring to one another... I never see this level in other comics. Seems like Steve Hofstetter is just neurotic and disagreeable. He puts up good arguments but when you see how many he has you should start to wonder is the problem alll of them? Or is he the problem?
