Funny Stuff
14 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

The HBO Comedy Half-Hour was put together very well.. They pulled some of the funniest people together and output something great. Dave Chappelle, one of the funniest comedians in the business did not let me down, Lara Kightlinger with her cynical style of comedy was also very funny.. (Although I swear I heard her use some of those lines in a comedy central special). Although I had never seen Patton Oswald before, That guy had me rolling on the ground his entire sketch. The rest of the comics were also very funny. In conclusion, They were good... so watch them..... right now..
