Cue El Scorcho with a mirror joke.

Maybe I've missed the "good" episodes, but it's just familiar stand-up routines set against silly animations. I'm not too impressed.

I preferred Short Attention Span Theater, but this is close.

I've watched a few episodes, but mostly it's material that I've heard many times before--only animated. However, if it's material that I've not heard before I seem to enjoy it. It's not a show that I will go out of my way to see, but if it's on I might give it a look for a few minutes.

Some of the bits are hilarious to see in "shorties" form. Although, they should drop the actual "shortie" comments. Those babies are annoying beyond belief. Painful to listen to sometimes.

They're starting this up again. Seems like the worst idea Comedy Central has had since deciding to pick up repeats of Mad TV. Somehow seeing a literal animation of a stand-up bit makes it funnier? For a lot of stand-up comedians, part of the humor is watching them tell the joke. Watching their body movement, their facial expressions, etc. Granted, I have several CDs from stand-up comedians, but I always, always prefer to see it as well as hear it.
