Great Show, Very Underrated
20 May 2015 | by rodneypetersonSee all my reviews

I heard about this show from Bill Burr's Monday Morning Podcast because he describes it as the closest thing to reality, showing what its like for comedians to try and get a show on the air. Its only appropriate that this shows is paired with Louie on FX as they both stretch the bounds between funny and uncomfortable. Although it isn't on par with the brilliance that Louie brings, it carries its own very well and has made me long for new episodes as badly as Louie, It's Always Sunny, and Archer. It is still in it's initial stages and obviously hasn't found it's audience judging by the low rating it has accumulated so far. Let me say this though, I have never felt the need to sign up for an online account due to unjust reviews until now. Billy Crystal is in his finest form in years, and although Josh Gadd plays an understandably irritating character, the shows writers have done a fantastic job building the character into someone that you can feel empathy for. Great Show!
