That was great!
I loved that one strip you did! It was the best!
That comic was a great! No, you did good! No, really!
Okay okay I admit, your mother paid me to compliment you so you feel that even without a useful productive work to society you can still maybe feel happy for a little while.
The way you all made a variation on the same joke was fantastic!
I find that if you give a creepy slimy smirk in return it tends to get good results too.
*smirk*"Hey, ...why are you dialing 911?"
I actually hate getting compliments. I want critiques. Compliments are useless information that tend to give me a distorted view of my actual performance.
What happens if you tell the comedian which specific jokes were the funniest?
