Childish and Offensive

Meet the Creeps

Yaay! Jim Florentine and his buddy Don Jamieson have put their hijinks on DVD! Yaay!

Anyone who listens to the Howard Stern Show has probably heard Jim's ''Terrorizing Telemarketers'' calls where he tortures telemarketers who call his home. You may have heard him on Comedy Central's ''Crank Yankers'' as the retarded puppet ''Special Ed'' or Bobby Fletcher the rude, belching, annoying guy. Jim has been goofing on people and torturing them his whole life. Now he and his friends have taken their rude behavior and caught it on hidden camera video.

I've been lucky enough to have seen Jim and his buddies in action in person. The crap they pull is childish and stupid but you can't help but laugh your ass off when you see people reacting to it. Something as simple as saying ''You dropped something!'' to someone as they walk by turns into a minute long search for an imaginary item. I've seen it happen and couldn't help but laugh. Now everyone can see it on ''Meet The Creeps.''

The ''Creeps'' on this DVD include comedians Jim Florentine, Don Jamieson, KC Armstrong (The Howard Stern Show), Artie Lange (The Howard Stern Show), Jim Norton, Club Soda Kenny, Gary Gentile and Chuck Mignanelli (Grandpa from Terrorizing Telemarketers)... and Anna Lexington the hot intro chick whose breasts are dangerously close to falling out of her shirt.

On the hilarious DVD you'll find bits like ''Urban Fishing'' where Jim, Don and KC go into an Asian market armed with Sponge Bob Square Pants kid-sized fishing poles and go fishing for live fish in the fresh fish tanks. Then there's Jim's infamous fresh pepper bit where he has a restaurant waiter grind fresh pepper on his food until there's literally a pile of it on his plate. In this segment Jim has the waiter grinding fresh pepper for 35 minutes. He goes through three pepper mills full of pepper. After the mill gives up they start crushing the pepper in the kitchen with a mallet. Four bowl fulls later, Jim has enough pepper and proceeds to eat the piece of chicken that was buried in pepper. KC does something similar with fresh Parmesan cheese but stops after two bowls full and has his meal wrapped to go.

There's also a little bit of animation on this DVD. Jim and Don did a call for the ''Terrorizing Telemarketers'' CD where they pretended to be brothers and passed the phone back and forth as the telemarketer asked them questions. Each one would say ''Hold on, let me put my brother on the phone'' and pass it to the other every few seconds. They took this call and had it animated.

There are many other great bits on this DVD including Jim drinking and smoking a joint while he test drives a car, the guys going to a supermarket and throwing stuff in people's carts when they walk away from them, Jim and Don performing ''Upper Deckers'' in hotel rooms and more.

The very tall and sometimes intimidating Club Soda Kenny makes a couple of appearances in the DVD and steals the show when he and Jim Norton go shopping for gum. Sounds normal enough until you see Jim Norton acting as Kenny's autistic friend. There's nothing like seeing the uncomfortable look on the store clerk's face as Kenny slaps Jim's hand away from the gum as he goes to grab it. Kenny tells Jim to get the gum but ends up slapping him away saying that he'll get it for him. They also go to a supermarket to get some free samples of ice cream. Kenny slaps Norton's hand away as he grabs the cup and tells him ''Don't take anything from strangers!'' right after he told him he could have some ice cream. The woman giving the free samples takes about 3 steps backwards when she sees what's going on. Her frightened reaction is probably exactly what these guys are going for when they do this shit.

There's a lot more on the DVD but you'll have to get a copy to see it yourself. It's worth the $20 or so you'll spend to get it. Trust me, go order it at You can also get a couple of preview clips on the site.
