The second part of Brad Sciullo’s attempt at the 15+ pound Belly Buster Burger at Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub on last night’s episode of The Colbert Report is now available on the program’s website. The segment closes with Sciullo expressing his desire to eat a live shark and Colbert responding “I think we’re going to need a bigger throat”.

    Either he has a super deadpan/dry sense of humor or he’s batsh*t crazy. . .either way that segment was awesome!

    This is awesome yet hilarious. Brad, you are f**king crazy and I think I believe every word you say. A live shark? I think there needs to be a prime time cable show that has brad doing something different each week. Perhaps you can un-hinge your jaw and swallow a deer.

    I’d go with the crazy theory. Or maybe just misunderstood.

    Then again, I thought there was a possibility that Boone was misunderstood and look where that got me…

    Well let me see is Brad crazy? NO just starving for attention. How can a man eat a 20lb burger but cant beat 3 locals in a pgh wing contest. Let me see (NEWSFLASH: HE DIDNT EAT THE BURGER) Wake up the only one talking about this with any sense is Tiny. Everyone else is playing into the whole thing.

    Brad is hilarious! I’ve known Brad for over two years now, and all he want’s to do is be the best and compete with the best. Gravy, trust me….he has thought about eating other whole animals….and he is dead serious! MLE/IFOCE is missing the boat with “The Lunatic” he is 100% certifiably crazy, and there’s no one else like him in the organization at all. For all the haters who say he didn’t finish the burger, I ask you…why Brad? Why would the owner pick Brad to be the one person to finish the burger? What does he possibly have to gain from it? Money, wrong…anyone who has been to Denny’s will tell you it’s packed 24/7. Notoriety? Negative….his burger has been featured everywhere imaginable. The truth is, Brad busted his ass, worked hard and ate the whole freaking thing! As for not beating people in a wing contest…thats comparing apples to oranges…a wing contest isn’t about capacity and is more about technique, anyone with any knowledge of CE will tell you that. When Brad cried after winning the cannoli title, I shared a ride home with him…we drove to NYC together, he talked for 6 hours straight about how excited he was, and I have to say I was happy for him. Brad takes CE seriously….despite the comedic spin on Colbert, and if given time to train, Brad can compete with ANYONE if given the chance.

    Whats funny about him is that he says this with a straight face. Very rarely do you see him laugh . Smiles but no laughter all business. He looks like a kid that the police would take away in handcuffs for doing something bizarre , but the only thing bizarre about him is his choice of foods and the amounts he consumes

    anonymous/Tiny…. this is not serious stuff, lighten up. its one of the funnies videos this site has ever referenced, which was hosted on a light entertainment show, just enjoy or you will force these people away. yes we are playing up to the whole thing, and we know. Starving for attention? that cool, we need people like that in a modern world, its entertainment,

    Brad hats off to you man, that was hilarious. You may be one weird kid, but your one hilariously unique eater and IFOCE should be using you to their advantage.

    We just hope he is not training with you Big Brian Subich because that may take him down a level

    I don’t know if he ate the whole burger or not, but that was hilarious. The long pause and “not with the relish” was priceless.

    Guys, don’t forget that Don Lerman paved the way for eaters to be on the Colbert report, and you should be ashamed that you aren’t giving him the respect he deserves in this thread.

    What I like of all this documentary is that:
    1. Brad shows what may happen when you train with water… I laughed when people say “I have never vomitted during or after an eating contest or during training” We all have had our bad times.
    2. He can do short speed eating contests as well as long eating challenges which are the ones I personally prefer, seeing him, Joey, Koby, Pete, Tim, and Pat for mentioning some at a table eating for 5 hours would be priceless!
    3. He is very hilarious and lunatic with quite a personality, sometimes that is of more value than being the one who can eat the most.
    Congratulations, you can do a lot of things in the competitive eating world if you really get into it, why don’t you compete more often? Thanks, Alex

    “We all have had our bad times”

    another nobody that is trying to be someone. only qualification is they can type “we” when they have done nothing.

    by grouping only these names “Joey, Koby, Pete, Tim, and Pat ” shows how little they know. amoung the many obvious capacity missing names are Rich L who could eat more retired then ECM could eat in a month

    Oh, dont get me wrong about the video, AWESOMELY HILARIOUS!
    Just saying that the ONLY way he ate that burger WAS to go to the bathroom and get rid of SAID burger.

    Hey there OJrifkin. NEXT POLL. (PLEASE).

    Who thinks that Brad Scuillo really ate the 20lb. burger? I mean without reversing.

    Please OJ.

    I believe it was a phenominal feat for someone to accomplish. Whether or not he finished the burger in one sitting is irrelevant to me because if he did then thats truely impressive show of capacity and if he didn’t then he has the gumption to attempt to reverse on national television, being watched by the patrons of the bar, and got away with it. I’m not saying I credit him on that note but to the fact that he would be “CRAZY” enough to do such a thing shows a great deal of conviction.

    I did a poll on whether Brad completed the burger last December. The results can be seen:

    Me bad. Forgot the poll. Good poll.
    Brad Scuillo aint that bad of a guy, he is a good eater, and an even better shit talker.
    But he did not legitimately eat that burger.

    Whether or not Brad ate the hamburger legitimately, I don’t know. I don’t think he did because there are no photos or video that I’ve seen to make me think he ate it legitimately. Some punk says he did, some slimy restaurant owner says the punk did, a news story says he did…anyone can say anything. Tiny, do you have some proof that Brad didn’t eat it legitimately?

    We all have bad times, as human beings, not only competitive eating, I have a life besides this, however I am a fan and also took part in contest years ago.
    I said for mentioning some names, the bad thing is that I didn’t mention yours… I think I have an idea about who you are… get a life and waste your time critizing others that you don’t even know or cared to know.

    Dear Mr. A-Bomb,

    To legitimately eat something, such as a challenge burger, you should have to eat the whole thing without reversing in the bathroom. If the rules clearly state that you are allowed to puke up portions of the burger then I guess it was legit. But I dont think that the owner of Denny’s Beer Barrel Pub state that in their rules. So why dont you put 2 and 2 together and realize that this is one of the biggest crocks of competitive eating shit out there?

    ecm ate this first. ecm is the best eater out there. seeing ecm eat would be priceless. ecm should have been an option in the current poll. had to vote someone else should be number one as ecm was not listed.
