2 great comics 1 uninspired show
23 July 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Billy Crystal is a veteran comedian trying to get a sketch comedy show on the FX network. To his dismay, he is forced to take on edgier young comic Josh Gad. It's Josh's dream come true but not for Billy. Kristen Laybourne (Stephnie Weir) is the struggling producer. Mitch Reed (Matt Oberg) is the overlooked head writer. Esme (Megan Ferguson) is the disinterested P.A.

These are two great comedic talents. The material is uninspired. The limited comedy isn't all that funny but Billy and Josh do a commendable job. The show within the show is not funny. Other than the top two, the comedy drops off. The writing is simply not sharp enough.
