Not Crap from what I've seen.

He was arrested for disturbing the peace while filming a segment that took place at a town hall meeting. He was additionally charged with lying to the police, after one of the 12 sheriffs present demanded his name, and he answered, "Jazz legend Ornette Coleman." Right there, not crap.

I fucking love this show.

When he took a metal detector into a jewelry shop I thought it was cute, but when he suddenly used it to shatter a case then nonchalantly fill his bag and try to walk out, I lost my shit ten times simultaneously.

Love it, mostly because of Hannibal Buress.

Fell in love with it when I first stumbled on it. That initial rush has since subsided, but definitely not crap. I have this little hitch where when I'm excited about something, I think about sharing it with a woman I care about, and then as I consider that I often reevaluate its merits a bit in terms of gender dynamics/politics. Show's a little weak in that light, but I do like it.

Yeah, his anarchic streak and love of chaos is real. It's great.

This is one of my favorite shows. His music and impersonator guests are classic.

NOT CRAP.

I really liked the first season, but the first couple episodes of this second season have been not so great. With comedians like this, the more people are aware of who they are (and the more aware they are of what people like about them), the less interesting they get. Also, they switched away from the weird old tube cameras they used in the first season, which was a terrible choice. Still, not crap though.

Not crap at all!!
So far my favorite guest was Ryan Phillipe. He actually played along with it through the whole episode and that fucking song he did was hilarious.
I still havent caught any of the new season yet I keep forgetting to stay up and watch it.
I must be getting too old.

The "can I hold your baby?" bit was painful to watch, not in a bad way necessarily, but goddamn. You could tell he wasn't feeling that all that much, himself.

My favorite bit of this season:

"HOW MUCH IS GOLD WORTH RIGHT NOW?"

..

"Do you always vomit when you're happy?"

"I'M MULATTO"

The last episode was really great. ("You wanna hit this ranch?") Okay, yeah, I do love this show.

I admit I was hesitant to proclaim my enthusiasm for an adult swim show 'round these parts, initially. I should get over that. For Eric. And Hannibal. And George Clooney.

His show is phenomenal, and it's not this lazy/awkward/humor that's "cute" it's totally clever uncomfortable anarchy.

here, on Jeselnik's show...not giving a fuck.

since reading about it here I've found several skits online and none are crap. Can't find whole episodes, though.

Hannibal's plan to make counterfeit money work was great.

It's not anarchy when you have a team of professionals in on it and it comes out exactly the way everybody planned. It's mock-anarchy. Dude is doing a completely safe mimic of somebody going off, a caricature of the unexpected, a grandma quilt of "uncomfortable."

Less funny than Dice, less insane than Gallagher, less uncomfortable than Seinfeld. Can't fathom anybody giving a shit about this.

That aspect of it just strikes me as goofy and funny, actually. Like a cartoon.

I don't know about the first two, but the last is just so untrue.

It's not even the anarchy that I like about it, it's the humor. I'm completely in synch with it, it cracks me up. The ("professional") anarchy of him including people not in on the joke just makes it funnier. On that note, I somehow don't think a team of specialists give Andre firecrackers or advises him to rub himself and derail questions during interviews, unless they really pulled one over on me. He is just publically amusing himself.

It makes me laugh a lot, NOT CRAP.
