Sorry, Mike. Can't agree with your definition of a comedian. Azzholes target someone just to get a "reaction." Comedians target someone to get a laugh, trying to help them forget their real-world problems temporarily.
He's not very funny IMO, and I don't rate him up there very far as a comedian. Kinda like a Bill Maher type. They think they're funny, they call themselves a comedian (a CINO- Comedian in name only) but really they're just mostly abrasive. Abrasive ain't funny. Unless you're watching it happen to someone else on a show like Ridiculousness or Jacka$$.
Nobody needs to take any of this sh*t seriously. It shortens life spans.
The format that RCR uses literally qualifies as satire. In terms of gauging its success - 130K views in 2 days, a 99.985% approval rating, and a very favourable comment section says it is indeed effective by contemporary standards. If you find yourself the butt of the joke or identify with the things said and are offended: too bad. Most people have already moved on... but, they might recollect the video when they see your "reviewed" car at a car show. But, probably not.
I am willing to put money on him getting facts and stats wrong just to get a rise out of those people who take their cars too seriously.
