disaster - 3 minutes are good, that's it
2 October 2005 | by (san francisco) – See all my reviews

This show is a complete disaster. I was looking for a show full of his stuff on Jay Leno, but only about 3 minutes is that. The rest is a fictional / real like show like Curb Your Enthusiasm but not as funny. They somehow figure a way to comingle a few minutes of his hidden howie stuff. Usually he's trying to sell a Hollywood producer his show, and they watch a minute or so. Sometimes a few seconds.

Bottom line, this is NOT Hidden Howie, it's a sitcom with a couple of minutes of hidden stuff.

In one of the scenes, his teacher is mad because Howie's son brought in a video of a guy going to a coffeeshop in just a shirt and shoes, nothing else. That lasted about 10 seconds, and was a hidden howie moment, what we have seen on Jay Leno.

In another scene, Howie is obnoxiously talking on his cell phone right next to a guy on a payphone, and that scene is truly funny.

Howie Mandel is a master of the hidden camera, I love his Jay Leno routine and was excited to see this show come on the air. After watching about 10 minutes of the first episode, I was very disappointed to see the show is only about 10% hidden howie, the rest is just filler.

What a pathetic mess.
