Judge Jeff Foxworthy was in a particularly giving mood, complimenting every single act immensely. “You are a terrific comic, I would pay money to go see you perform,” the stand-up comedian gushed.

“I loved the character you played…its very posh and proper but slightly horny,” Twitter queen Chrissy Teigen said to comedy magician, Mandy Muden. We all know Chrissy has a touch of sass, and we want to see more of that on the show!

Noticeably silent, was SNL star Kenan Thompson…who fans point out isn’t easily impressed. Eventually Kenan joined in on the fun telling one comic, “you were super-duper funny and everything in-between.”

So are the judges being too nice? This could be a case of new show, new talent, and not wanting to step on anyones toes. Going up on a stage in front of a nationwide audience is definitely nerve wracking, so maybe the judges don’t want to apply any unnecessary pressure. Fair.

Maybe we’ve been spoiled by the brutal honesty of sassy AGT frontman Simon Cowell. All things considered its still really early in the season and we’ll most likely see constructive criticism along the way.

Can You Really Judge Comedy?

What one person finds funny, the next may not…right? This could be the culprit of why its hard for the judges to critique what’s funny and what isn’t.

It would be interesting to hear about the technicalities of comedy and learn a little more about the craft through constructive input.

Tune in to Bring The Funny on NBC Tuesday evenings after America’s Got Talent.
