A well-put together show !
12 October 2007 | by Batkid1See all my reviews

I saw part of the Carlos Mencia episode and just recorded an episode w/ Ray Ramono on it that's being currently re-run on Comedy Central.

These executives get together the best comedians, let them write their own skits and then the viewer sits back for half an hour and is merely entertained by the comic genius of each guest.

If you ever catch part of these episodes on Comedy Central or HBO, just don't even think about switching the channel because, trust me, you'll regret getting a laugh in.

I'm hoping to see other episodes of this in the future seeming how there are so many comedians on here making an early appearance and, presently, at this time, they're now popular, but this is a must-see for anyone who's into brilliantly written "laugh-fests."
