It's funny but there's something weird about the audience..
14 March 2008 | by PinnokkioXSee all my reviews

The applause makes it seems as if there is a large audience and they're laughing head over heels but whenever they are shown on camera, there are only a few people applauding which makes me suspect there is a laugh track.

Anyway, I saw the first episode and it was funny throughout, especially if you like Lewis Black's rants. They covered politics, religion and celebrities which makes me hope there will be more of this show in the future.

Despite the suspicious audience, this show deserves to be given a chance.
