In this bizarre mélange of sitcom and variety show, Canadian porkpie-wearing comic Seán Cullen weaves musically-backed standup into especially absurd (and generally quite risqué) comedic plots. Cullen shares his house with his Band who live in the living room, Betty and Sonny who live in the kitchen and Winston who dwells exclusively in the cellar. Each week Sean welcomes special guests into his home for a half hour to experience his own peculiar brand of comedy. Apparently not quite satisfied with that degree of unconventionality, Cullen has quite jarringly ripped down the fourth wall, adding studio audience participation to the mix as well as involving a pair of "critics" sitting in the crowd as an integral part of the cast.

First of all I want to say that I am not bashing Sean Cullen at all because I have seen him perform so many times live, and his comedy and music on TV for example on CTV and in the American show "Last Comic Standing". He is always hilarious to me as a performer and he has a fantastic look and just seems like a genuinely nice person. But this show was just so weird and did not make me laugh. I really wanted to like it but I found the characters were all very forced and just not funny at all. Sean hosted as himself and there were times when his live comedy shone through, I remember him once doing a song about building things out of hot dogs that made me laugh a lot, but the rest of the show was just strange without being funny. I hope he gets to do another show someday and that it is better than this show turned out to be, sad to say it was not very good.
