What About It
I like this show quite a bit. I think your enjoyment of the show is going to, pardon the obvious statement, absolutely hinge on Kaplan’s somewhat peculiar voice, both physical and comedic. His physical voice is one that I could see some people finding annoying, but it doesn’t bother me, particularly since he is so funny. That said, his comedic voice is kind of off-kilter as well, a kind of absurdist-cerebral sort of humor. He typically has good guests; occasionally one of them won’t really gel with Kaplan’s particular style, but that’s rare. This show is typically very funny; not game-changingly so, though it is not typical by any stretch.
3 ½ stars.
You already know “Myq” is pronounced “Mike.”
