Celebrity Disappointment: Matthew Perry Edition

April 17, 2009 § 2 Comments

SKM at Shakesville tips us off to what she aptly calls Perry’s “entitled white dude humor.” In this particular instance – an appearance on Letterman – it comes in two flavors: joking about stalking Lisa Kudrow, and joking that he can’t tell M. Night Shyamalan apart from all other Indian men. HAHAHA!

I worshipped every cast member of Friends throughout my childhood; I own all ten seasons and have been known to quote on command. I’m now aware that the rosy, whitewashed lives of the Central Perk crew are saturated with privilege, and that breaks young Miranda’s heart. Perry’s jokes only disappoint me further.

Previously in Celebrity Disappointment: Amy Sedaris; Kenan Thompson.

    It’s times like these that I wish celebrities would just stick to whatever they’re promoting rather than inflict their “hilarious” anecdotes upon us all.
    Also I think it’s about time studio audiences considered silence instead of the nervous laughter option.

    No!!! He was my favorite.
