  • Starring: Gary Gulman, Dane Cook, Robert Kelly
  • Summary: This tour documentary follows comedian Dane Cook (best known for his "Retaliation" CD) on the road in his tour bus with three other stand-ups. If you watched "Comedians Of Comedy," you've seen this sort of thing before.
  • Genre(s): Comedy

  1. It's a rip-off of an earlier (and better) road trip series, Comedy Central's "The Comedians of Comedy," but worthwhile nonetheless.
  2. 50
    The show's weakness is that not a lot of interesting or funny stuff happens on the bus or in their touring cities.
  3. The whole thing feels like a[n] unfortunate twist on Comic Relief--charity for the comedians. [9 Jun 2006, p.133]
  4. 30
    Too much like a dull season of MTV's "Road Rules," without the women.
  5. 30
    If the prospect of accompanying comedians on a comedy bus does have a certain allure, don't get too excited.
  6. Reviewed by: Paul Schrodt

    May be the most pointless series HBO has ever produced.
  7. [It] panders in a fashion that's akin to a neon sign flashing, "Yoo hoo! Young demographics! Over here!"

    I must say that although this show is not fun to watch, it's not Dane Cook's fault. The concept is great and was probably great to Dane's ears when he set this up with HBO. A month of touring with comedian friends should've been cracking wise, getting drunk, meeting people, everything you would expect rolling around the country with comedians would be. However, it's quite dramatic as it turns out: they argue with themselves, question their material, and are generally uncomfortable. It's a shame because it could've been a great opportunity but was squandered by these men for various reasons. I will give them this though, it's a dose of reality for upstart comedians or performers of any type. For those who like the uncomfortable scenario type comedy of Louis C.K. I gotta hand it to Cook. He did this one first. Expand
