'Two And A Half Men' In Two And A Half Days: Comedian Gil Ozeri To Watch Entire Series Over Weekend
Can one man handle watching the entire "Two and a Half Men" series to date in one weekend? Comedian Gil Ozeri is betting he can.
Posting on his web site yesterday, Ozeri said:
As you all know, Charlie Sheen is having a great time right now. A while back, before the whole Tiger Blood debacle, I had an idea after speaking to someone about the CBS show, "Two and a Half Men." Here's what came to mind:
Charlie Sheen is the highest paid actor on television.
Two and a Half Men is the most watched comedy on TV.
Two and a Half Men is also a crutch for every comedian when they need to reference the worst thing on TV.
I have also never seen a single episode.
Now, "Two and a Half Men" might be terrible. But I don't want to make any "judgments" before I see it.
My plan is to videotape myself watching every single episode of "Two and a Half Men" (around 177 episodes) in a single sitting. Now for the remarkable part. At around 21 minutes per episode, this roughly equates to 62 hours, or appropriately and amazingly, it equates to a running time of exactly: Two and a Half Days!
Hence - Two and a Half Days of Two and a Half Men.
So with the gauntlet thrown -- at himself -- Ozeri embarks on his challenge today, and you can watch him do it live via Yowie right now. And thanks to the good people at someecards, you can also send him a personalized letter of encouragement.
The project is being produced by Funny Or Die, and Ozeri will be joined throughout the weekend by fellow comedians, including Paul Scheer, John Gemberling, Jon Daly, Brett Gelman, Curtis Gwinn, Emily Strachan, Paul Rust...and reportedly a few porn stars.
One suggestion we have for Mr. Ozeri: have a physician and/or psychotherapist on standby. There can be unforeseen consequences to extended periods of #winning.
