Editors' Spotlight

IMDbTV Pick: Showtime's "Penny Dreadful"

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Hilarious, a MUST see
12 March 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

I was up late Monday night/Tuesday morning and flipped to Comedy Central to see Rick performing his stand-up. Sadly to say I missed the first couple of minutes, however, I cannot begin to describe his routine, it was simply hilarious. Rick has a innocent and almost naiveness to his delivery...he comes across as just an average guy, that experienced something extraordinary. Its as funny to hear how he says his story as much as how funny his story really is. Imagine a Lewis Black, but not angry. He paints a picture of Bill Clinton (his buddy bill) and Hilary that fits them perfectly as the Clintons you would imagine they really are. While his story may seems unlikely, its amazingly realistic. I was left thinking after-wards of if it actually happened, but you couldn't imagine someone just making up a story like this. All the while, his story is very clean, no toilet humor or grotesque use of profanity. He starts by talking about how he was helping Bill Clinton train his dog and ends with the sad dissolving of their friendship, but its so funny. He talks about how becoming friends with Bill opens the door for him to meet other celebrities such as Billy Bob Thornton and Christopher Walkin, and with each celebrity, is another funny story. I really hope Comedy Central shows this again and I highly suggest watching it, its well worth it.
