Apparently . . .

At the start of each episode of this series is a friendly warning that if you don't like swearing, adult content or stand-up comedy then you won't enjoy this. So, I know for a fact that I am fine with swearing and adult content. My sad conclusion then is that it seems I don't enjoy stand-up comedy. This is very disappointing because oddly enough I've always very much enjoyed it in the past. Maybe it's an age thing, a case of the male menopause? Something I used to enjoy so much and now find tedious and predictable.

Of course, another explanation might be that this isn't actually very good stand-up comedy . . .

Neither funny nor clever.

I only managed to endure the first episode and half of the second, before turning this rubbish off. Described as 'adult content', it seemed to me to be more prepubescent than adult. The performers appeared to think that it is possible to convert something, which is not very amusing, into something which is funny, by liberal use of obscenities and shouting. It didn't work!! I have absolutely no objection to the use of 'strong' language, if it serves a purpose. In this case in did not, and its use was excessive and gratuitous.

This production is just neither funny nor clever.

At no cost it's still too expensive!!

Now I have to work out how to delete this drivel from my library.

I'm glad I didn't pay for these...

OK there are odd good bits, but there are also some extremely tedious and unfunny bits.
And swearing for the sake of it really isn't comedy.

worst of all though is the sou d reproduction... Amazon/audible should be ashamed for the totally poor quality of the audio in places. it really sounds like this way recorded on the phone of an audience member in places!

Absolutely Pathetic

If these so called comedians think they can earn a good living from comedy then think again. I'm afraid it was just cringeworthy and not at all amusing!!!!
