Often tasteless and sexist, but just as often laugh-out-loud funny. Led by expert comics Carolla and Kimmel, "The Man Show" is a brutally honest exploration into the psyche of men. It covers for its political incorrectness by never taking itself too seriously.
"Boys will be boys" seems to be this show's mantra, but I have yet to catch the "Man Show" boys trying to politicize their immature fetishes. Granted, there may some boneheads out there who use some of the show's takes on life to reinforce their chauvinist biases, but free comic expression should not be held hostage to how idiots might misinterpret it.
As many a married woman would tell you, "guy stuff" is, first and foremost, a fertile ground for comedy. And in this post-Lenny Bruce universe, "funny" tramples "PC" just about every time.
