Show goes beyond stand up routine
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!
