Good Show but Comedians Did Not Get Credit
26 November 2009 | by (Bensalem, PA USA) – See all my reviews

It's always sad when comedians are not valued and Producers assume that they can get away with not giving them IMDb credits and/or residuals. When I initially viewed this page, there were only 3 credits listed (Lewis Black, J. Chris Newberg and John Pinette) so I ADDED 30 CREDITS!!! There were a few credits that I couldn't add because the end credits were cut off of my recording but I did get most. Hopefully, by the time you read this review, the credits of the 30 comedians who were cheated will be visible. I don't get paid to give comedians IMDb credits but I respect comedians and will help them out when I can.

About the show, it was entertaining and definitely worth watching. Perhaps I have given the Producers a wake-up call here. I can only hope. I was going to purchase the video but I know that the comedians who performed won't receive anything so, therefore, I won't. It's akin to boycotting Wal-Mart for selling products made in sweat shops.
