Rough start becomes comedy gold

When I heard Paul F. Tompkins (Mr. Show, Comedy Bang Bang) was getting his own show, I was on board from day one. Admittedly, did not stick around. Seasons 1 and 2 of this show are admittedly rough, which is why I have to give this show 9/10 and not 10/10. Thankfully Fusion let PFT and Henson find their footing, and now ... we have greatness.

I want to give it 10/10 because something happened between Seasons 2 and 3 that changed everything. I came back to the show near the end of Season 3 (Jack Black episode) and immediately started watching all I could on youtube, where many complete episodes can be found. Paul F. Tompkins has already transformed from his earlier, puffier, more reserved days on Mr. Show into the character-actor, stand-up wonder that one might find on Comedy Bang Bang (podcast and TV show) and Spontaneanation, and now with No, You Shut Up, he is now jettisoned up into yet another level of amazing comedic ability.

This show is The Daily Show + Puppets, reporting on current events with a great deal of parody ... and puppets. While it is fairly clear this show leans to the left (have you ever seen a comedy show for the right?), the cast of puppets ranges from hard-core right-wing squirrels, undecided voters made of rock, arrogant left-wing mites, old-timey turtles, working-class lunch pails, and really dumb birds. You're going to get ever opinion on all the major debates going on in our society whether you want it or not.

If you're not sure about this show, or like me and left it ... come on back. Looking for a good place to start? Google their Special Reports with either Patton Oswalt or Kristen Shall/Hannibal Burges. Then ... get going on Season 4 because now this show is moving and it doesn't look like it is going to slow down!
