Pretty bad
21 December 2010 | by tomasettiSee all my reviews

I am one of those people that put on Comedy Central first every time I turn on my TV. I enjoy pretty much everything that's aired, with a few exceptions. This is one of them.

The skits seem to be rough drafts for ideas that could be funny if properly written acted or directed, and that's being nice about it. Other skits seem to be rough drafts for ideas that could never be funny regardless.

I do not consider myself above toilet humor, but this show seems to contain some sort of childish humor in every laugh.

Skit shows are generally failures, Dave Chapelle had a really nice format with some sort of a standup performance, introducing us to the skits and giving us a backstory behind them sometimes either before or after. And the skits had a laugh track as a result, in the style of Saturday night live.

The combination of no laugh track to tell us when to laugh, combined with the fact that it's really not that funny add up to an awkward viewing experience. As with anything else, it gets more awkward with more people watching.
