This show is a special kind of funny, where my baseline reaction is constant giggling which then overflows into full on crying with laughter at points. I think it works especially well as a British viewer since a lot of our humour is based around social awkwardness.
Came for the Q, stayed for Sal
This has been on the UK Comedy Central the last few weeks, I've actually really enjoyed it and I normally hate shows like this, might have been from 2 years ago but Jedeye's post above explains its allure well. Really amusing stuff.
brofist it also shits all over the UK IJ from an embarrassing height. One of the UK guys was at my local venue doing standup. I was tempted to go just so I could tell him he wasn't as funny as the yanks (but that would be super cunty. But if I bumped into him on the street I totes would say it).
If you don't already, check out the podcasts. Q is on Tell Em Steve Dave, and Q and Sal do a pod called What Say You? - the last episode had Jay from the Inbetweeners (and his awesome, very cute sounding wife) and it was hilarious.
Anyone catch their big live special last night? Love this show, the wife and father in law and me watch it and laugh like crazy, but man that live show last night was terrible. Howie Mandal was awful to watch and so fake and the high wire stunt was lame.
Never watched the show until WatchMojo had the on a top 10 list. What have I been missing.I just got finished watching a compilation on the presentations of this show. Watching the link now, thanks. Hope I didn't see it already, and if I did I'm sure I'll enjoy it all the same.
Edit: Watched it before, still finding it funny. I also like the Carbonaro show. Funny stuff.
