    LOVED! season one of this and am so looking forward to season two. If you like comedy do yourself a favour and sample an episode or two … I think you’ll like what you see.

    I liked this show better when it was hosted by Alan King on Comedy Central back in the early ’90’s. It was called “Inside the Comedy Mind.” I mean, if you’re going to rip off a show, at least try and give it somewhat of an original title.
