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.

You think that comment is shocking. I was at the Laugh Factory a few months ago and Dunkelman was on. He was talking about celebrity babies and went on to say Shilo was so f***in cute he would like to f*** that baby!!!!! No one in the room thought that was funny. The worst part was that this was a fundraiser for cancer survivors and there were a TON of parents of preschools kids in the room. The guy is really screwed up!

We know who is unethical    

Let's get something clear that TMZ won't tell you because they like to give out false info or not tell you the whole truth.

AS of 2005, the CDC reports that there are about 475,000 Americans living with HIV/AIDS in the United States (33 states reporting based on confidential name-based HIV/AIDS infection reporting). Let's just round that up to 1 million people to err on the side of caution. We have ~300,000,000 people in the United State. Doing basic math, that comes out to about .3% of ALL AMERICANS are infected with HIV or has AIDS related diseases. Let me repeat, .3% (not 3% not 13% not 30% but point 3 percent) have this virus/diseases. HIV/AIDS is a political disease that get billions of dollars in tax money, almost as much as cancer research that affects multiples of more people than AIDS, yet hardly affects anyone. So why is AIDS such a big issue knowing just how few the disease affects? Because Hollywood was able to cleaverly market the disease as one that affects heterosexuals which it doesn't. AIDS is a scam disease.

He can't be held accountable. He's a rabid ferret and brain rot is
one of the symptoms.

I went to a comedy club in LA several months back and Dunkleman was "performing" along with others. He made jokes about having intimate relations with children!! Needless to say, the venue was quiet during his set. He's a perfect example of the wanna-be celebrity that ends up being nothing but an angry hack.

I remember season 1, and this guy sucked as a co-host. I was glad when he disappeared for season 2. It improved the show.
