he's not done anything monumental in terms of humanitarian causes, so me thinks to say he is one of the greatest guys ever is an overstatement. his comedy is okay, but should be considered slapstick. cheap. i might guess pro is caught up in the gay hype recently going on, and neil is gay, so pro goes on about him.
But you should be careful in jumping right to his comedy as the only work he does. Also, as being a hardcore fan of his for 3 years now, it has nothing to do with the "gay hype" going on. His fanbase has been increasing since he was 15 years old. It has nothing to do with the fact that he is gay. Nothing. You should do a bit more looking into his work. Comedy? I'm not sure when the title of his work just became comedy... As a person, there is much more to him than a TV show. It is easy to look at one of his most famous works and categorize him based on solely that. Look to see what more he has been involved in, and not just acting. Being one of the greatest people does not necessarily mean that you have to change the world.
pro just says a person is greater than their most notable achievements, but doesn't give any examples. perhaps his hype isn't based on gay hype, but we see he doesn't even rest on his comedy. so when it comes to why pro is so adament, we are left clueless.
lol I meant for this to be more of a joke haha im not looking to argue, im pretty sure he is not one of the greatest people to walk the planet by definition... I just am like obsessed with him lol hes my favorite
