Not the real down-to-earth, raw comedy I hoped it would be. Laugh tracks and cheesy acting
9 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

I've watched John Mulaney's stand up and seen him on quite a few talks shows. I found his stand up quite funny, and he seems like a great guy, so I was interested in seeing what his show was like. During his stand up bit at the beginning of the first episode I was thinking to myself "This show is going to be great". Then the show began. I just can't their using a live audience. If you like shows with live audience you might be able to get into this.

I can't stand live audiences and can't believe that any comedy to come out since the early 2000s still uses them. I was really hoping this show was going to have a very real and down-to-earth feel to it like Louis. But instead I got a really cheesy cookie cutter sit-com that reminds me of 90% of the other sit-coms with laugh tracks.

The laugh track (or live audience) isn't the only problem I have though, the acting seems forced to me and the situations unrealistic. Anyone who's a fan of realistic comedy without Laugh tracks and cheesy little gimmicks, I recommend staying away from this show.

I don't want to give this a rating because it might just have to do with me not liking laugh tracks.
