Comedian Livens Up O.J. Simpson Press Conference

9/19/07 in NFL   |   Jon   |   5 respect



You'll see this video at some point tonight, so you might as well see it here. Believe me, I'm just as sick of the whole O.J. thing as you are, but when a comedian acts like he is part of the Juice's defense team during a nationally televised press conference, it must be shared, no matter how much we want it all to go away.

The man standing behind Yale Galanter, O.J. Simpson's lawyer, is Jake Byrd, a comedian who can sometimes be seen on Bill Simmons' friend Jimmy's television show (that would be Jimmy Kimmel Live).

Wearing a shirt saying "OJ 07" and a hat reading "I Heart Famous People," Byrd interjects his own talking points as O.J.'s real lawyer tries to make some point about something or other.

The highlight is right at the beginning: Jake tries to get Yale to high-five him unsuccessfully.

Best of all, nobody tries to silence him or move him out of the way. Real comedians don't need to get tasered to bring attention to themselves, bro.

Seeing how all of OJ's lawyers end up dead, how well is Yale Galanter being paid for this case?

That was great!! That guy made a complete mockery of that press conference, like OJ and his defense team made a mockery out of our judicial system.
