The main reason I watch comedy central
4 April 2008 | by MairegChernetSee all my reviews

Awesome stand-up show.

Comedy central presents is basically a stand-up show that features various stand-up comedians in each episode. What I like about the show is that all the comedians have their own unique styles of comedy. for example mike birbiglia plays the guitar while making witty lyrics, and Dane Cook and Steve Byrne make hilarious sound effects. although I have to admit some comedians are corny and offensive, for the most part comedy central has had a balance between the jokes and their obscenities.

I am glad this show isn't canceled after a couple of seasons and I am also glad that there is a mini-marathon of it late night on comedy central every Friday night. It has become a part of my stay-up-late-and-watch-TV routine.
