Show goes beyond stand up routine
1 September 2015 | by karababearaSee all my reviews

I really really really enjoy this show.

This show goes way beyond the stand up routine (per my headline).

I really appreciate all the character interactions and although the main cast is small, they are all an integral part of the show and create plenty of depth.

I have enjoyed Jim Gaffigan's stand-up for years, so maybe I am biased. But I have also enjoyed other comedians' stand up and their shows fell flat for me. This is not the case with this show.

All chemistry between characters is great.

I love how the show isn't on a laugh track (...that I can tell, I think I'm usually naturally laughing when there is supposed to be laughter).

This show isn't just a replay of all of Jim's humorous stand-up, it's real life and I hope this is a close portrayal to how your* life is (*if Jim is reading this) because it makes me happy.

Maybe the reviewer who gave it a one star is anti-Gaffigan or maybe he didn't drink his two alcoholic beverages suggested by comedy clubs to lighten the mood.

I'm so glad this show got signed on for a second season. You should start watching now before there are too many seasons to catch up on!
