  1. It's a rip-off of an earlier (and better) road trip series, Comedy Central's "The Comedians of Comedy," but worthwhile nonetheless.

    The show's weakness is that not a lot of interesting or funny stuff happens on the bus or in their touring cities.

    The whole thing feels like a[n] unfortunate twist on Comic Relief--charity for the comedians. [9 Jun 2006, p.133]
  4. It's "Entourage" on the cheap, without the fun stuff.

    Too much like a dull season of MTV's "Road Rules," without the women.

    If the prospect of accompanying comedians on a comedy bus does have a certain allure, don't get too excited.
  7. 25
    May be the most pointless series HBO has ever produced.
  8. [It] panders in a fashion that's akin to a neon sign flashing, "Yoo hoo! Young demographics! Over here!"

    A half-hour vanity project that proves HBO can not only be TV, but bad TV at that.

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. Full Review »

    An abomination against comedy, truly awful.
