8/10: Actually funny no limits comedy
8 April 2016 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

To begin this, if you are easily offended (as the disclaimer says) do not watch this.

This is a series that gathers about a handful stand up comedians each show and simply discusses different topics with a strong emphasis on comedy. Some of the comedians work better than others together and yet some are so far apart they end up working because of it. The cinematography is nothing special but very suitable for the show (and the overall production which is very well done), the bar setting is close quartered and there is even ad on numbers from members of the crowd (which seems to consist mainly of comedians).

Underlying to this there is a more serious discussion about comedy in general and stand up in particular - in short this is a must see for any stand up or going to be comedian.

Pro's • Diversity • No limits (which all participants are in on) • Production • Host (a little worse off toward the end of the second season but overall passing with flying colours)

Con's • Looses focus at times • It would possibly be a bit sharper with 1 less guest • Exactly all episodes do not work as well as they could, without Jimmy Carr it would have been a lot better.

*Gotcha.
