How can a show about comedians be so unfunny?
26 June 2007 | by TheRuralJurorSee all my reviews

I just don't see how this show manages to suck as much as it does. Every night, this show features 4 professional comedians (5, I suppose, if you count Byron Allen-I DON'T), yet there's more laughter to be found over at 'Poker After Dark'. This is a problem, people. An old guy in a cowboy hat playing poker with a dyed blonde woman wearing sunglasses is funnier than 4 comedians telling jokes on a stage! How is this possible? Well, to begin with, Byron Allen's isn't funny on the show (but they give him 3 minutes to do a painful monologue Jay Leno wouldn't touch during a Writer's Guild strike), and even if he WAS given good jokes, I'm not convinced the King of mediocre late night television would be able to deliver it. Secondly, the format of the show is awful. Byron Allen sits in the middle of a semi circle of four comedians (3 men and 1 woman...ALWAYS) and asks them strangely specific questions very obviously given to him beforehand by the comedians so that they can deliver pre-prepared jokes (or, more accurately, moderately amusing to unfunny and grating anecdotes). Even worse, Byron switches quickly from comedian to comedian to comedian to comedian to commercial to comedian until the show is over. Because none of the comics is given any chance to build up momentum, their extremely random and disjointed attempts at humor end up resembling nothing more than a rambling jumble of conversation you might overhear at a bar mitzvah.

I'm not joking when I say you could put Bill Cosby in his prime up on that stage and his famous routine on Noah and the Ark would barely elicit a chuckle, such is the waste land of this show.
