Best Reality Show On TV
6 August 2003 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Usually I'm not a fan of reality television, but I got into this show after the first episode. I'm a fan of stand-up comedy and this show had many quality comedians.

Dat Phan was energetic and great at physical comedy. I liked how he would sometimes open his act in "pigeon" English, then he would say, "I'm kidding, I speak English". What a great "ice breaker!"

Dave Mordal and "Don" Vos were a laugh riot. I especially loved Dave's idea for a pilot of a bunch of goofy, incompetent terrorists. I was laughing so hard when he described it, even if the "focus group" hated it. It cracked me up when they focused on Rich Vos, always ironing and when he would say "I stink".

I liked Raphie May's "angry" style of comedy and my sides were hurting from laughter when he was taking pot shots at Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown as he went head to head with Rob Cantrell.

Rob Cantrell was just plain goofy and I liked it. When he chose Ralphie, that took a lot of guts going up against the best in the house and you saw the respect he gained from it. I also liked it when he showed us his lava lamp and said this was the brain that told him he was going to be a "super funny comedian."

Cory Kahanie, Tess and Geoff Brown were funny as well. I liked Cory and her stories about her teenage daughter.

The last 2, Sean Kent; I don't really remember much of his stand-up routine, but Tere Joyce, I didn't find funny at all. She wasn't funny in the beginning and her "cha cha cha" I thought was very annoying.

When I look back at this show and the reason why I loved this and couldn't care for the other reality television shows, like any "Survivor" shows or "The Bachelorette" in comparison, because 5 years from now, will you actually remember any of the winners or care if Trista and whoever she chose will still be together? I doubt it.

Five years from now, I can see most of the 10 finalists moving on to bigger and better things in their comedic careers.

No pun intended, but Ralphie in my opinion has the potential of being the next big thing out of the whole group. Dat and Dave as well stood out.
