Could be better.
24 April 2000 | by See all my reviews

When I heard Martin Short was getting another chance at a talk show, I was overjoyed. I love Martin Short, and almost everything he had been in. But this is a disappointment. I couldn't believe what I was seeing while watching this. I know Martin Short is famous for his mile long slapstick, but it gets to a point where it is just plain annoying.

Also, he makes too many inside jokes. I seem to get them fine, and when I watch with friends, I'll start snickering, and they end up asking, "What's so funny."

The show is also very bland. I think by now everyone has seen Martin and his band parading around in his underwear, so PUT YOUR CLOSE BACK ON! And while your at it, cut down on the slapstick, and write some jokes other people who are not into Short can get.
