Sick Joke?

Bitter Dunkleman

Goes After Seacrest

7/27/2007 5:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0727_ryan_brian_getty_tmz-1TMZ has learned audiences at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood were shocked and awed last week, after axed Season One "American Idol" co-host Brian Dunkleman (memba him? no?) went on a tirade against Ryan Seacrest. Girls behaving badly!

During his set, Dunkleman, now an alleged comedian, poked fun at his stint on "Idol," but when he began making inappropriate comments like, "If wishes came true Ryan Seacrest would have AIDS," the laughter stopped faster than it does at a screening of "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry."

We're told the sad sap went on to spew that Seacrest "probably already has AIDS." Because, really, what's funnier than incurable life-threatening epidemics?! Luckily, once Dunkleman was done with his vicious diatribe, other comics like Godfrey brought life back into the room by actually being funny!

There are currently over 40 million people living with HIV/AIDS worldwide.

Of course he is a bitter man? Wouldn't you be if your last name was Dunkleman compared with Seacrest?

TMZ is taking shots at someone for being inappropriate. That's like Andrew Dice Clay calling someone out for being misogynistic.

I DO think Ryan helped Execs oust Dunkelman (appropriate name, no?) He seems that cut-throat and has for the past 10 years, but this guy could have come out doing OK too (a tell-all, or produce a similar show) but he hasn't.

Painful.

I was there. It was a joke, and the audience practically died laughing, I'm not kidding, say what you will about the guy, but he's a funny comic. Get a sense of humor, TMZ.

Why did he get fired? I heard different stories, one they liked Ryan better. And I also heard he was making sexual comments to the female contestants? Do anyone in Tmz land know what happened?

At least his job at Burger King is going well. He was just promoted to the french fry machine. Good job Dunkleman!

Wow, that was really mean. I don't care how annoyed you are at someone, you don't wish a horrible disease on them.
Anyways, after season 1 of American Idol and they chose to go down to just one host, I'm guessing there were a million reasons that Ryan was kept and Dunkleman was not. Why can't he just accept that instead of wishing huge misfortune (in public no less) on Ryan?
Move on with your life!!!
