IMDbTV Pick: Showtime's "Penny Dreadful"

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Hilarious.
12 October 2002 | by (Surrey, British Columbia.) – See all my reviews

Now, before I saw this special, I'd figured she was just your average comedian who had transfered her career over to film, and that the comedy thing was on the back-burner.

Boy, was I wrong.

This special (which, admittedly, she wrote three hours before airtime) was an absolute riot. The stories (dogs, summer blockbuster-films, relationships, gay pride, etc) were very entertaining, as her razor-sharp wit and sarcasm is excellent for delivering jokes.

Not too many comedy specials are worth watching, as they are often just ego-trips for the comedians; but this effort is hilarious and seems very random and out of real life, which is the best kind of comedy.
