A look at the work of two stand-up comics, Jerry Seinfeld and a lesser-known newcomer, detailing the effort and frustration behind putting together a successful act and career while living a life on the road.
Inspired by Ted L. Nancy's book "Letters from a Nut" the letter-writing prankster reveals his true identity and takes his bizarre inquiries to corporate headquarters, hotels and sports teams a step further.

I caught the premiere of "The Marriage Ref" after the Closing Ceremony of the Vancouver Games, and I am hooked. Not your typical reality dreck at all. Fast paced, funny and real. Great to see Jerry Seinfeld back on TV, but it's not all about him. The burden will be on the producers to find ammunition for the panel in the form of squabbling couples, and I don't think it's a problem. I'm sure there are no shortage of them, and plenty of stars who will be pleased to appear on this fresh, fun show. Pretty harmless, but deadly funny!
Unlike typical reality schlock, this show is quick, entertaining and to the point. One half of the show is devoted to each of two couples resolving issues, like, one partner wanting a recently deceased dog stuffed and placed in the home and the other partner disagreeing. Awesome! Tom Papa is a great host/referee. If they can keep the momentum going, this might make it. Great idea, great show.
