Trivia

The project bypassed the traditional development, and was financed with private equity money. The creators were able to make the show exactly how they wanted, on a timetable that suited them. So, they did the first two episodes, and shopped them around different networks. See more »

Not sure what this show has to do with "The Room" or "hipsters"

SUPER FUNNY! I changed my review from 8 to 10 when I saw some of the negative reviews on here. All you damn reviewers go a little off the deep end!! This show is so funny. It probably makes you feel something that you don't understand, maybe you don't quite get the humor? So then you feel stupid, then you get angry? Well I am sure the Blue Comedy Tour will be back soon. OK, apologies, enough about the ridiculous reviews. This show is awesome and I look forward to watching it every week. It does not belong on Adult Swim, it belongs right where it is on HBO, can't say "f#@k" on Adult Swim yet. It follows in the tradition of The Life and Times of Tim, or old-school animation from the 90s such as Liquid TV, Beavis and Butthead, Dr Katz. It's alternative humor with low budget animation, and that low budget animation creates a good tone for the show. The show takes human personalities, the hilarity of modern life, our culture of dating, and city life and applies it to the animals around NYC. It's funny to imagine animals with human personalities too. Not to mention all of your favorite funny-people do a voice on the show (list is too long to only mention 1 or 2). Please watch this show, I want to see it come back on next season. And to all you reviewers out there who think your intense opinion of a cartoon on HBO is wanted: Go burn some energy, ride a bike, take a walk, smell the trees and the flowers outside. Grow the f#@k up, care about something that matters, volunteer your time, and get off your damn soap box.
