Critic Reviews

  1. 70
    A week between each episode is highly recommended. But in small doses, his shamelessness, persistence, and humor are remarkable.
  2. While Wootton's alter egos--a criminally inept (emphasis on criminal) psychic, a struggling actor, and a scruffy documentarian wannabe, all new to Los Angeles--have hilarious moments, they don't show any layers beyond idiocy.
  3. 80
    Wootton dips as far into darkness as even Baron Cohen, but instead of merely relying on cursing and butt thongs to create comic gold, Wootton crafts a well-thought-out narrative and puts a few props in place before he meets his real-life characters.
  4. 70
    While he doesn’t often inspire the helpless laughter that “Borat” or “Da Ali G Show” provoke, his quieter, more slowly building situations can have their own devastating payoffs.
