Tom Papa is anybodys good time if you like "funny". I enjoyed this video immensely. It was the only one I rented out of other selections on this Comedy Central Presents. He is a delight, and he doesn't need to be obscene or swear to make people
laugh. Now that's a gift!

I love Maria Bamford, she is easily one of my favorite stand up comics out there. I wouldn't consider this one of her top performances though as she just doesn't seem to have the sheer creativity and polish that she shows in her newer performances. Don't get me wrong, it's still a good performance and easily worth the $2 to nab on Amazon, but her season 11 performance is much better.

The comedians who do stand-up on this show vary in humor. Quite a few are pretty funny (Lewis Black for one). And then, there are others who I don't find funny, probably because they are an acquired taste (Wanda Sykes-Hall). I haven't finished watching as of now, but so far, there are more funny people and unfunny people.

I didn't care for several of the comics, but that may merely be difference in taste. Another may like the comics I didn't. I believe the real value in this season is the ability to try out comics with which you may not be familiar and to see those you wish to see more of. Unless you like practically any comic, there will surely be some you don't care for. But, that's the point. You can explore what's new to you with little effort.

One of the funniest comedians I have ever seen. I wish he would come to my area so I could see him live.

These are mostly good shows - stand-up comedians can never please everyone, and not all of them pleased me. But they are adult without being too raunchy for me, and only 1/2 hour, so I can watch the whole show to unwind, and still get enough sleep.

I bought this solely to see Louis CK in his element as a younger comedian. I was amused, and intrigued as you can tell his humor has progressed and even gotten a little cynical since the days of Comedy Central Presents.
