I know what you're thinking.."What kind of crappy hack comedy does he perform?"
The Winnipeg Sun called it "observational humour", but what they might not know is they aren't Dustin Diamond's observations. Several of Screech's bits are stolen directly from other (actual) comedians' acts.
People not familiar with the etiquette of the comedy world might not understand what the big deal is. Most 'civilians' tell jokey-jokes ("street jokes") back and forth to each other and it's funny! Comedians must do that too, right? Wrong.
In the comedy world, people like Screech are despised and outed as "hacks". It sucks because the hacked comic has to immediately retire the bit he's worked so hard to develop - if someone heard the hack say the joke before the comic who actually wrote it, they might think the original comic had stolen it.. so it's essentially the blatant theft of a hard working, underpaid person's livelihood.
It's the highest crime you could commit as a professional comic.. and it's a quick way to work yourself right out of the industry. This happens every once in a while.. Joe Rogan recently outed Carlos Mencia, for example. Just like Carlos, Screech books himself as a comedian and performs jokes he stole from actual comedians who write their own material. Several first hand testimonials and examples of this theft can be found in the articles on this site.
Not only is Dustin Diamond a hack, but it turns out he's also very consistently an asshole. Check out his appearances on Celebrity Fit Club some time.. it's just crazy.
Here's some YouTube clips:
In short, he's kind of a dick.
Screech has always been and will continue to be a complete waste of molecules. The only way he could possibly add any value to this planet is when his rotting corpse decomposes and adds nutrients to the soil. And even then, he'll still suck.
Screech has said, "When all is said and done I'm going to look back on my career ... and I'm going to be proud of it all."
Dustin "Screech" Diamond: proud hack.
