U.S. - Looks like there's a new giant in the competitive world of modern comedy: local Portland man Bill Patterson, who goes by the name "Billy Pants" on social media, is receiving his own Netflix comedy special after replying "OK boomer" to hundreds of different posts over the past week.
The show will have Patterson stand up on stage and say "OK boomer" over and over again for a full 90 minutes. Patterson will call on people from the audience, and once they're done asking a question or making a statement, he'll just say "OK boomer" to uproarious laughter from the show's laugh track.
"I guess I just have a knack for comedy," Patterson told reporters, shrugging. "It's not that I'm a genius or anything, like those guys who say 'This ain't it chief' on Twitter all the time. Those are the real heroes."
"I'm just an ordinary guy with a gift," he added.
Reporters suggested he start his own comedy YouTube channel or Facebook page, but he simply replied with, "OK boomer."
