Disagree with both of these things. Laughed out loud frequently at his FX show (although I think I get what you're saying). And I feel like the show has encapsulated his stand up real well, to the extent it can anyway.
He's my favorite comedian by a wide margin, and there's no way in hell I'd pay $80 to see him. That's insane, had no idea his tickets were that high.
Will buy this show though. Love the idea.
Fair enough. I have watched it through on Netflix multiple times, I enjoy the crap out of it, and I do laugh out loud a few times at it. I just feel like its humor is much more subtle than his stand-up, which makes me spit beer, cough weed, or drop pizza, whatever I'm doing at the time.
On that note, I had to pause this new show, as I think this bit he just did was my favorite he's ever done. I was laughing so hard that I had to pause it, get another beer, and reflect on GRB. Now going back to it.
Yeah, see I definitely agree the show is more subtle than his stand up. I just think the overall theme and tone of the show meshes well with his stand up.
Good to hear about the new material. Looking forward to grabbing it, but I gotta clear some space on my hard drive.
Also, I watched Lucky Louie, didn't really like it. Thought it had moments, but the FX show is infinitely better.
