It's a laugh a minute .... and not much else in the other 59 minutes
3 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

It's an improv games show and they bring a couple of name celebrities to play along with the regular cast. There are a few different games but they have a varying amount of comedy possibilities. And generally I don't find the host that helpful to the comedy.

Slide Show - The floor is slanted at 22 degrees. It is rarely funny although there is a possibility of injuries. If only they have a floor that moves like a fun house at the carnival or one that can rotate back and forth...

In the Dark - The players go into a darken room playing out a scenario. This is also rarely funny although massaging a big fat guy had its moments. It's hard to tell if Andy Dick is really afraid of the dark but at least it allows him to be somewhat funny.

A Bunch of Jerks - A bunch of improv games where the losers get yank up by a cord. The improv games are not new and seems tired. The bungee cord pulling the players up does very little and only slows down the show.

Shadow Puppets - Players behind a screen try to project shadows as clues. It's possibly the only good game and works well for a competition. I can see it being used in other better shows.

Alphabody - Two players form 4 letters with their bodies. Comedians have to work for the laughs or else it gets boring.

There are other games. None of them are any funnier. There are just too many unfunny awkward moments in this show. Too many games don't work. When it doesn't work, it really doesn't work. (addition) It got canceled after airing 4 episodes.
