Mike Rowe is a blast!!!!
21 July 2007 | by tbozant77See all my reviews

I've been watching "Dirty Jobs" for a while now. It is great fun to go behind the scenes of some of the most horrible jobs out there. People really do this kind of work!!!! The show is great, but I mainly watch for Mike. He is quick witted and keeps me rolling. He is very, very funny. He is such a good sport about pitching in and helping out with whatever task is given him. It doesn't matter how gross or outrageous, and trust me he gets himself into some pretty crazy situations. The show is put together very nicely and the camera crew is always going the extra mile to get the "dirtiest" shot they can. Check it out, I am sure you will get a kick out of this show!
