funny as hell -- Nonstop laughter, my all time favorite
21 March 2001 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

It's really too bad this series never got a chance to develop a following. It was replaced by specials for several weeks. Jeff Goldblum, a virtual unknown at the time was as funny as hell. His innocent original look and demeanor was priceless. This series stood out from all other shows at the time, and still does in my opinion.
