What a pleasant surprise
9 August 2015 | by nickbrockdorffSee all my reviews

I have never really been a Jim Gaffigan fan. Sure, he's funny, but far from one of my favorite stand ups.

As such, I am greatly surprised by how good this show is - in my view, one of the best comedies headed by a stand up comedian in years.

The chemistry with Ashley Williams is believable and balanced, she is not just a prop, but in fact very funny herself.... I especially enjoyed seeing her come to life in Episode 4, rather than just playing the boring "frustrated" housewife.

Michael Ian Black is awesome as the snarly homo friend, and Adam Goldberg is finally in a role where he get's a bit of depth, rather than just being the token angry a..hole, which usually get's old really fast in his previous work.

All in all, this show is well written, well acted and well produced, and highly recommended to anyone who also like current shows like You're the worst (which I put this show on par with) and Married (which I rank slightly below The Jim Gaffigan Show).
