One of those brilliant once in a generation shows
19 May 2007 | by jakethedog85See all my reviews

Wow. This program is amazingly funny, ridiculously twisted, intelligent, yet primal. Brilliant. Aziz Ansari, Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, and the man behind the curtain Jason Woliner, are all remarkably talented individuals with a knack for making truly edgy, hilarious, bombastic humor. The comedy is so markedly different from anything else that is on television at the moment that it may be startling at first, but Human Giant is worth your time. That is not to say that every sketch will leave you in stitches, at it's worst it is merely promising and quirky, at it's best it's revelatory comical genius. It is however, a consistently funny sketch show, which is a commodity today. Some of the highlights of the show thus far have been "Shutterbugs", a team of ruthless child talent agents, "Illusionators" a couple of illusionists that employ the power of the devil in their underwhelming acts, "The Deer" where the boys hit an evil deer and jump start it's heart...I could go on and on about how wonderful these sketches are but you really have to watch it understand how well done this show is. This is a sketch show with the world at it's feet, just like SNL during the Belushi years, The State before it's premature cancellation, Mr. Show With Bob and David. It's a show at the pinnacle of comedy right now, and you really need to check it out. Thursdays 10:30pm.
