What About It
Mohr is a real live wire, somewhat less of one than he used to be, but, hey, same here, I reckon. In the archives is a wealth of great material. When Mohr is locked in, he’s a lot of fun and I really dig his comedic tone. I can see how it might annoy some people; if you’re looking for a show where the host really fades into the background in order to deeply focus on his guests, this is not the show for you. But if you want to laugh a lot, it’s a really good interview show and Mohr, even when he’s doing what is probably schtick, never feels insincere. You never really doubt that he’s having a good time and that’s infectious. And some of his impressions are uncanny.
3 ½ stars.
You actually already knew who Jay Mohr is.

Sometimes Terry Gross is just a bit too high energy for you.
