Henry Rollins?

Am I the only one who adores him as a comedian?

He's so darn smart, his humor is right on for me.

Is this the same Henry Rollins as used to be in Black Flag and the Henry Rollins Band?

I've never seen him do comedy. Shows you how out of it I am.

I adore Henry Rollins, but I don't see him as a comedian. To me he's a highly intelligent and witty commentator on politics and popular culture. I've seen him 4 times, and I never tire of anything he has to say.

He has a show that I tape....I just started so I haven't watched much of it. It is on IFC....

However, I have seen him on other shows and love him.

Well, I'm out of the loop, too- I only knew Henry Rollins as the scary, muscley, tattooed rock star. He was never my cup of tea as a rock star, so probably wouldn't be that into him as a standup. He just makes me feel a bit scared- he's so intense!!!

Love him - I have seen his spoken word shows live several times.

I admit, Henry Rollins is my totally fantasy man. And is on my freebie list - you know of people you could have a fling with.

Is it getting hot in here?

I haven't seen his comedy act, but answered "yes" anyway because I know he'd be good. I love his comments on some of the VH1 productions, especially his "lap dog" remark about Johnny Rotten.

I remember a friend had some of his spoken word CDs released in the 1990's. He is definitely funny and a smarty to boot. Not too hard on the eyes either....
