ISMO | The Word ASS (new & extended version)


I thought I knew English pretty well. Then I moved to America and I found out that, well, no.
Now I have almost figured out the most difficult word - ASS.
I talked about the word ASS on CONAN. This is a bigger, longer and newer version.

    Thanks for posting this Ismo, I must have watched all your videos (in English) at least 4-5 times already. I had to put my dog down today (after 12 years), so this video really cheered me up. I was supposed to see your show in Hermosa Beach in March but got cancelled. Why you don't have a Netflix special is mind boggling. I'll even pay to watch you do a Zoom video session. You're definitely killing it.

    This bit is a masster-class in comedy. The content is fairly timeless, and you technically limit yourself to one swear word (and it's not even on Carlin's list); a good sign that it still works is that every utterance of "ass" is even funnier. The character works incredibly fluidly - the curious and befuddled English learner stammers along, seemingly in confusion - but it is, of course, fully deliberate - this lends itself to a great bait-and-switch at 6:16 ("I had to pull something out of my... hat!"). Words are sometimes pronounced unclearly, but never when they're new and important - so it serves the character without hurting the clarity of the bit. Delightful to watch and rewatch!

We say "lazy arse" , "smart arse" , or just simply "areshole" (a favourite of my dad's lol) "Sit you arse down" (obviously literally haha)... "he is an arse" , "I couldn't give an arse", or better still, "I couldn't give a flying arse" 🤣 ((just imagine a flying arse lmao ) "big arse car" , "big arse house" 😄😂😂😂 Love you, Ismo 👌👏🙌🌈✨ xx

    I shared this with a friend of mine. He is one of my very closest friends. And he loved it so much that every time we talk we both try to somehow use the word "ass" in every sentence. It has become a competition between us to see how creatively we can use the word "ass" in a sentence.
