I think the juggalos are entertaining him.

That must be the most terrifying show a comedian can perform. I would love to know how he felt up there looking out at a sea of drunken methed-up juggalos.
Oh come on, he looks like he's having the time of his life!
Gilbert's cool; everyone's true colors come out after they get paid and Gilbert Gottfried is one of the ones who came back and still said he had a fun time. We can't say the same for Tom Green who recently referred to Juggalos as "the town retards," but if I had to defend Tom I'd say that he did see Juggalos at, arguable, our worst: the Tila Tequila incident.

What's that incident? Did she start talking about her paranoid schizophrenic delusions during a panel or something?
Prickly Pete, I didn't know you were a juggalo. I'm pro Juggalo.
JBF - We had some videos of the Tila Tequila incident here. She angered the hivemind and the juggalos attacked her, throwing rocks, bottles, smoke bombs, and even their own poo at her as she performed. She got cut up pretty bad and many top Tila researchers theorize that this incident may have been the catalyst for her subsequent mental breakdown.
Pete mentioned it once in reply to a comment I erroneously made saying that ICP was racist, so why would Hannibal Burress, Triple 6 Mafia etc. ever want to be there.. something like that.. and he's right. The song I was thinking of was pretty much about kicking the living fuck out of racists, homophobes, etc. It's not my kind of music but I don't expect people to like my music either. :)
Accounts of Tila getting literal shit thrown at her are purely anecdotal! Not saying it did or it didn't happen, just saying we have plausible deniability! I wasn't there tho so I can't speak on it either way. But yes, she was taunting Juggalos via twitter before the Gathering even started. Here's what often goes under the radar: knowing that an attack was eminent, ICP told her what to expect, told her she could back out, and paid her regardless. She chose to go on; she architectured that whole thing, then claimed she was set up. Not exactly shocking given that her whole career is based on "Hey pay attention to me even though I have no discernible skill!"
If anyone ever has any ICP/Juggalo related queries, don't trust the media or hearsay. I have all the answers! p.s., be sure and pick up the new ICP album coming April 28...
Tila said that they were flinging feces at her. She may or may not have Sarkeesianed the whole incident, I don't follow JuggaloGate closely enough to have an opinion on that (certainly sounds plausible), but she did say in interviews that she got pelted with literal shit, and I see no reason to call her a liar.
Hammsangwich - they sound like they're drunk and in really good spirits. They're eating it up because they're happy; their being idiots is besides the point.
And really, what Gilbert is doing, is it any worse than, say, SNL in the past twenty years? Or any one of the shows made by the big name talkshow hosts that Gilbert and his juggalo friends are slagging? The working class is routinely fed unfunny comedy by lazy, cynical, hack entertainers; the difference here is that Gilbert and his audience are connected, they're having fun, and the enjoyment is pure, without a hint of irony or condescension. This act we're watching is essentially a spontaneous pantomime; let's see Leno or "dancing" Donahue pull off something similar!
@ Hamm: There has never been a Juggalo stabbing there. "But someone got stabbed there just a few years ago!" you might say. Fact: That was between two vendors who weren't even Juggalos. They were fuckin hot dog salesmen or some shit like that.
@ Homer: Obviously I'm biased, but I'd say her being a well established attention seeker hurts her credibility. But again I'm not saying it did or didn't happen, I'm just saying if I were a Juggalo lawyer I'd demand pics or it didn't happen! She was definitely hit with garbage/rocks/chased out of the venue though...
Do juggalos have lawyers? I thought all legal disputes at Juggalo Court were settled by powerbombs, mob beatings, immediate imprisonment in a go-go dancer cage, or crushing the defendant's car with another car, even though the defendant's car wasn't actually owned by him, but was instead a stolen vehicle that he'd commandeered three days earlier in order to get to the Gathering that year?
Fuck Jay Leno! Fuck Jay Leno! Fuck Jay Leno!
Wow, this is the first I'm seeing this video and when I started listening to ICP over 15 years ago, I never thought I'd hear a crowd of Juggalos chanting "FUCK STEVE ALLEN!"

It has been said that the Juggalos are a tough audience, but look at this. They're trying to entertain him just as much as he's trying to entertain them. Every artist who agrees to be there automatically starts in the plus column for Juggalos. We're just happy that someone would take the time to come perform for us. Everyone who has had a bad experience there did something to lose the good will. We don't have secret meetings where we just draw names out of a hat and arbitrarily decide who to boo off stage.
I've been on stage enough times to know that the kind of audience in this video is the most fun kind.
So what do you suggest Andrew
W. K did to "deserve it"?
I suggest this, cause it's exactly what happened: Andrew WK didn't fuckin sing any Goddamn songs. He just talked on and on and on about bullshit. Which is fine if you're at one of AWK's amazing speaking functions, but he was there to play music. Though weirdly enough, he did kinda seem like he enjoyed having garbage thrown at him. Go figure. It bums me out cause I'm the only person I know who really loves AWK's music so it's a drag that he'll surely never be invited back, haha. He's cool though, he was a guest on ICP's tv show "ICP Theater" about a year ago, so no hard feelings I guess. Then again, so was Tom Green. Incidentally, so was Gilbert Gottfried. But I digress.
I would donate 0 to a kickstarter to send Pilkington to cover the next gathering.
Next time, Dick Cavett, next time.
