Lame
11 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

not really funny, even tho i like the mike black guy he is relativity funny in other things, such as reno911 as the cancer patient or in Stella, even tho Stella was dry and boring too and not funny....mike black is almost funny and the other guy is just terrible, i agree the premise for this show is horrible and will most likely be cancelled soon, but if their are idiots who like the crap show"hotbox" or "sarah Silverman" you still wont enjoy this crap.....you will if you have a paper thin personality and are amused very very very easily.., comedy central has hits such as south park, jon dore television show, reno911 dailyshow and colbert.....this misses the mark bad and whoever put the show hotbox together needs to be shot on site, thats show is pitiful and not funny one bit, i love slapstick stupid but clever comedy an this nor sarah sivermal, hotbox or Stella are in the same league as these other shows maybe not even the same spots......a few make us laugh and a few make me cringe this is one of them,,,
