    I really don’t get this verbal vogueing thing. Is it supposed to be funny? Topical? Introspective?

  2. ohplease says

    I have to watch every single one of these that you post because they are such trainwrecks. I don’t “enjoy” them, of course, but they do make me even more glad to be me. So there’s that.

    All you are all haters. I actually think its very funny and witty. I don’t see you all putting yourselves out there. If anything is obnoxious is all of the above.

    Sorry guys but I get the humor. Louis is a bit odd and his references are sometimes cloaked, and he’s maybe even a little tongue-in-cheek narcissistic, but I totally get it. He cracks me up.

  5. Aedan says

    Not his best one- but I’m not quite sure where all the vitriol is coming from. He’s generally at his best when he’s just sitting and talking about a subject. The “lets list off funny catchphrases or word jumbles at rapid-fire, breakneck speeds” thing is amusing as a quick clip at the end of the segment- but it gets really exhausting if it’s an entire episode.

    But I still laughed at a bunch of it. He’s amusing. Can’t we all just get along?

  6. FernLaPlante says

    @MARTIN, I’m not being a hater or being snarky. I honestly don’t understand the fascination with this and even what Verbal Vogueing means. I was just asking for an explanation.

    It’s called meta-humor. The fact that it’s a subjective joke and isn’t funny to dumb-asses makes it funnier. (What is topical? obviously this is no creme) Oh and btw, attaching a feminine pronoun to a critical statement about a young gay guy who is a little effeminate, reiterate you don’t like him so you call him her, is actually sexist. If you can’t have pride in comedy that’s over your head, there’s always M-Y-S-O-G-Y-N-Y. If you don’t know what it is girrrrrrl, you stupid! Now, go look it up.

    I liked it. Too much for me at times, but that’s the point. Some genuinely funny and witty moments.

    Louis is so completely funny! I love his commentary, his jokes, his writing style and the style he produces Verbal Vogueing.
    And Aaron’s correct today, too. I just don’t like calling people names like stupid. I use derivatives instead, like “mouthbreather”.

  10. FernLaPlante says

    I don’t hold any ill will towards the VV kid nor do I think he’s dumb/loser/lame etc. I just personally don’t find it funny.

    @Aaron, so it’s sexist for someone to call him ‘her’ (and BTW I agree with you b/c I hate when people do that too) but it’s okay for you to call me a dumb-ass or for @Brian to call me an “old queen” simply because I don’t find Verbal Vogueing funny? Hypocritcal much?

    It took me a while to get into his videos but now I find them quite funny. The 1st two were the best. The rest have there moments.

    I love that people don’t get his humor, though. And I suspect he loves that, too.

  12. zeddy says

    Oh yes…Towleroad…home of the most tired self-hating commenters on the internet. All googley-eyed for some army boy but if anyone actually acts “gay” you all get a bit sensitive. Maybe you need some preparation-H. Grow up or just retire.

  13. Lazlo says

    Not my favorite VV clip but Louis Virtel is comedy goal and a very bright not to mention nice guy. Also he’s not seeking internet fame, Louis has a real job over at and was already pretty popular there before he started the VV clips.

  14. C says

    I love him, and its weird to me that he has so many haters!! par for the course at towleroad i guess…

    I loved this one. i had to google several things, which one makes it more interactive and hilarious – like michael jackson 1994. he really did look just like jeanine garofolo!

  15. C says

    also – theres such a stream of consciousness – like how he goes from a joke about sandy duncans glass eye into wheat thins vs triscuits. sandy duncan did commercials for wheat thins
