Let me first say that I enjoy Chris Hardwick's stand up (I am a long time UCB show attendee and comedy nerd), but Daniel Tosh has better material and delivery in both his stand up, and his show. I realize that Web Soup and Tosh.0 have the same basic formatted show, but don't call Tosh.0 a rip off since Web Junk and all those other internet clip shows before them have basically done the same thing. Tosh.0 is just doing it better with added segments (web redemption, interviewing the internet "sensations", showing people puking in every episode for the first season).
Web Soup feels forced. Like Chris Hardwick and the writers met a deadline with half finished bits that they didn't think through if they were going to be perceived as funny before they shot the show (one of the writers worked on Mind of Mencia, FYI). This program is merely a rehashed Web Junk with another host. It's too bad The Soup has to be associated with this unfortunately produced show.
Watch Tosh.0 instead of this. You will actually laugh, and you may just learn something.
