Did You Know?


When asked on Michael Showalter's webisode series The Michael Showalter Showalter (2007) if Comedy Central had cancelled the show, Zach Galifianakis replied "Yes, thank God." He went on to explain that "messing with people" made him uncomfortable. See more »


Tillie Sullivan: Ask him how many times he thinks a woman has to experiment before she's considered a lesbian.
Kevin Beekin: Speaking on behalf of the lesbian community, how many acts... of lesbianics, I don't know the word. How many acts of lesbianics does it take before she's considered a lesbian?
Gay Man: Without making anyone uncomfortable... I'd rather not try to speculate on that question.
Tillie Sullivan: I heard it was five.
Gay Man: I would agree with that, yeah.
Kevin Beekin: Isn't it no longer considered experimenting once you know what it is?

6 October 2006 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

Awkward moments can be funny, but they aren't automatically going to be as the lazy writing of this show attests. The mockumentary thing just seems tired at this point, taking cues from Christopher Guest (Best In Show, Waiting For Guffman, A Mighty Wind), Ricky Gervais (The Office), Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), and The Daily Show's field reporter's bits, at best without really bringing anything new to the table, at worst significantly dumbing their influences down. This show is just as good or bad as Reno 911, and like that show I think Dog Bites Man's limited appeal lies more in engaging the viewer with the plots and characters than in the moments and lines intended to pass for gags.
