In the world premiere of his Comedy Central one-hour stand-up special, "Beta Male," Kumail Nanjiani ("John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show," "Portlandia," "Franklin & Bash") tells you about all the things that terrify him completely.
The best thing about Root of All Evil is it is a good vehicle to give stand-up comedians exposure without burning up any of their routines on TV.
The worst thing about Root of All Evil is probably Lewis Black. He comes across as a bombastic parody of himself and while a lot of his lines work, it has the same scripted quality that his later Daily Show spots had.
However, the core of the show, two comedians debating a ludicrous point works very well. The format particularly suits the deadpan character work of Andrew Daly, Paul F Tompkins' raconteur delivery and Andy Kindler's deconstructive approach and the show is a special delight when any of those three are on screen.
