Really good
24 January 2012 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I don't have Starz, and didn't even know this existed until I heard about it on a podcast.

This show is smart and funny, and not at all pretentious. It's also kind of human, in a time when that's becoming rare.

A lot of comedy now seems to be aimed at getting the audience to enjoy it when someone is debased. And most of what's left over is either fairly raw schtick. And there's super sappy, syrupy stuff.

The premise of this show is that people who work for this crummy cater waiter company are entitled to their dignity. It deals with inequality and unfairness unflinchingly, but also with good humor. Mostly it takes the position that unfairness is kind of absurd, and because it's absurd it can be mined for humor.

I know this review doesn't make it sound funny, or fun. But that's because I'm not really funny, and I'm not great at conveying humor in my descriptions.

It really is very good.
