Here’s why the Shorty Awards for comedians are bullsh*t

Jim Norton, Bo Burnham and Iliza Shlesinger are in the running for a Shorty Award. That’s great.  Also, Joe Jonas and Justin Bieber are in the running, natch. WHO THE FUCK ARE THESE OTHER PEOPLE?

The End.

     reminds me of SNL’s “You Can Do Anything!” sketch: http://www.hulu.com/watch/319318/saturday-night-live-you-can-do-anything

    “I’m what you would call ‘twitter famous.’”

    “Meaning?”

    “Not famous.”

    the shorty awards are no place for actual comedians. anyone without beiber-hair need not apply

    does the term “internet comedian” make any one else want to play in traffic?

    Justin Akin is awesome! Smosh is an insanely popular website with the kids. Some of these other people are internet people who have a really big following. I think it’s fitting that someone who has a big following on-line can win a shorty award, that’s sort of the point, right? Just because YOU haven’t heard of someone doesn’t make them a nobody. I can’t explain Justin Bieber being on this list though, so you have a point.
