I'm Aziz Ansari, one of the creators and stars of Human Giant and I can't recommend this show enough. Unfortunately, the Amazon editorial review is the only bad review of this DVD I've really seen. Don't listen to Bret Fetzer. He went to elementary school with me and I remember him being pretty racist.
Here's our A- minus review from The Onion AV Club.
Human Giant: Season One (MTV)
Reviewed by Nathan Rabin
March 5th, 2008
Fans like to bemoan the premature deaths of Mr. Show and Arrested Development, but both enjoyed substantial runs and left behind a lasting cultural legacy. A direct line can be drawn between the cult shows of the very recent past and the cult shows of today. Arrested Development found a worthy heir in 30 Rock, while the terrific sketch-comedy show Human Giant serves as a vital link between Mr. Show and the current generation of web-weaned funnymen who made their names posting homemade videos online instead of working their way through Second City, The Groundlings, or Saturday Night Live. The show's central dynamic echoes Mr. Show as well. Like Bob Odenkirk, Rob Huebel boasts the bland good looks of a local TV news anchor, yet there's a spark of madness and rage at his core. Castmates Paul Scheer and Aziz Ansari, meanwhile, take turns inhabiting the David Cross role.
Unlike Mr. Show, Human Giant isn't averse to recurring characters.Read more ›
Bret Fetzer is a dick.
Buy this DVD and prepare yourself for hours of entertainment.
This show is a little random but it's also A LOT funny!
Aziz Ansari is one of the hottest comedians around so getting his take on everythign is awesome! Team that up with cameos from comedy greats like:
Rob Riggle (Snl Daily Show)
Patton Oswalt (King of Queens, Comedians of Comedy)
Brian Posehn (Just Shoot me, Comedians of Comedy)
Mary Lynn Rajskub (24 and Mr Show)
and you have a real winner!
This dvd is a MUST own!
You get discs with this DVD series from MTV. The second being extras and deleted which are decent at best. The real worthwhile part is obviously the first disc that is almost comic genius. I will say, I have shown this others and they were not much impressed so like I said it's not for everyone. That being said my mom, who's 50, watched some of this and thought it was great. Also, I have seen all the main characters in this on other prime time networks so I feel this was their springboard to stardom. Also, Rob Riggle (Daily Show, Step Brothers) has a few cameos and he's riot.
If you don't give me a good review I will find you... And give you a Colombian neck tie! Just kidding....

I didn't enjoy this show very much. They're trying way too hard, which makes it seriously not funny. There's a subtlety to physical comedy that these guys don't seem to get.Published on July 29, 2013 by JR Ewing
This sketch comedy show from a collaboration of three of today's funniest comedians is packed with witty, outside-of-the-box jokes. Too bad MTV cancelled it so soon.Published on February 19, 2013 by Robert A. Vazquez
You of course have to have an awkward sense of humor to like Human Giant. Cheesy. Subtle. Original. Bizarre. Very funny.....if you're a little unconventional.Published on February 11, 2013 by GeorgeRP
