Dr. Victor Von Doom: Dictator, Evil Villain, Genius, Stand-Up Comedian?

Kind of funny, but where's his accent?

 I personally found the concept to be pretty amusing, but I feel like the jokes were sort of hard to hear. Still, I loved the Sue Storm jokes. Corny, nerdy, but funny; check out what happens when Doctor Doom travels all the way from Latveria to the United States to be a stand-up comedian.

Not bad, but I think people would know who he was talking about if he just said "The Invisible Woman" or "The Human Torch".....

"Why do students like white teachers better than the fantastic four? Because it's easier to bring an apple to class than a watermelon."


That was definitely a racist joke, he just replaced "black teachers" with "fantastic four." Anyone who was laughing at it in the video had to have known what he really meant and how f***ed up it was. 

Also the first joke, it's really hard to hear so incase anyone missed it I'll repeat: "A priest, rabbi, and the fantastic four are on a boat. The boat gets a hole and begins to sink. The priest says "we must save the children," the rabbi says "fuck the children." The fantastic four looks over to the rabbi and says "You think we'll have enough time?" 

I'm guessing he replaced the priest asking the question at the end with the fantastic four.

i didn't know  that  dr.doom was a  stand up comedian.  there were  funny  jokes, but there  were some  rasist  jokes, but  still it was good.

I think I laughed more at the fact that Dr. Doom was up there and his entire act was based around The Fantastic Four more than the jokes themselves (not that they weren't funny). Victor just sits at home thinking of how to incorperate his arch nemisis' into his stand up? I kept laughing evering time he'd mention a FF member. Very funny for comic nerds.

sic jok, you've cracked the code!  He's just taking old racist, anti-semitic, ethnic and classist jokes and making them about the fantastic 4.  It's completely absurd and points out the absurdity of those stereo types.  People should be ashamed for laughing!

I have to agree that he is not very original and his jokes are racist-based and not really funny. However if you are going to read into his jokes that way you are basically saying that he, the comedian, is telling the joke. You are missing the point that it is Dr. Doom telling obviously racist jokes about the Fantastic Four because he despises the Fantastic Four. The comedian is playing a part or role. Granted it is juvenile and a bit misguided (he could be a little more original), but do you honestly think that Dr. Doom does not feel this way about the Fantastic Four. It is not hard for me to think that Dr. Doom thinks that the Fantastic Four want to have relations with children or use racist stereotypes.

Though I do not feel I can recommend his efforts or condone his lack of thoughtful and unique artistic vision, I also cannot condemn him for his attempt. And I agree, people should be ashamed for laughing, but not because by laughing they are supporting racist behaviors, but because it is Dr. Doom and he is not a funny man, he is scary and a bit of an ass. Plus if the audience did not laugh Dr. Doom would probably kill them all.
