Average episode of the show
5 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

"The Benadryl Brownie" fails to reach the comedic heights of the previous episode but still manages to beat most comedy shows into submission without breaking a sweat.

There's the usual mix of human error, misunderstandings, coincidence and selfish behaviour in this episode, leading to some humorous situations. The ultimate pay-off isn't totally satisfactory but this is still worthy of a viewing.

Wanda Sykes makes a welcome return as Larry's nemesis, Wanda, and Richard Lewis is superb.

7 out of 10 in terms of a "Curb" score but still very good entertainment.
