Full disclosure- if you don't enjoy Broadway shows, subtract one star from the rating, and if you don't live in New York, subtract another. The humor is unapologetically slanted to a New York theater audience, but it is, after all, a limited run Broadway show.
Mulaney and Kroll inhabit their characters so comfortably and completely that one tends to forget the men behind them. A two-hour show of self- absorbed, borderline delusional caricatures is so reminiscent of Steve Martin's early comedy that his cameo in the middle of the show feels like a foregone conclusion.
The jokes are fast paced but the premise never seems rushed. The performance is loose, but scripted and theatrical enough to feel substantial. I've watched it twice. Highly, highly recommended to comedy fans.
