Pretty brilliant, daring, subversive, laugh out loud funny
Im surprised they were allowed to do the woke drones skit considering they are a subsidiary of a weapons manufacturer working for the us military death cult. These comedians have courage and empathy for their fellow human beings in a way rarely seen in this megacidal death culture we live in.

Hackneyed and predictable...
Hackneyed and predictable, a description that is redundant....kind of like this show. Blazingly unoriginal---one of a type, entirely indistinguishable from the dozens of shows and routines out there already covering the same ground (and not very funny, either). If you like tropes, cliches, clumsy preaching, and cheap shallow laughs absent any semblance of nuance, subtlety, and humor, then this show is for you. Probably helps to be under 25 and have attention-deficit disorder as well.

Pushes the right buttons +brain-food via laughter
Roving philosophers in didactic battles. An 80’s future-past-present icon who pushes oedipal boundaries. Add a Ben’n’Jerry’s flavor that stops all war. This is my kind of show, simply superb, some of the best writing I’ve seen in awhile! Watch it and laugh.

Funny, scathing humor
Long time since I watched a sketch show this biting. If comedy is meant to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable, this show smashes it. Think Monty Python, the Young Ones, and even the Smothers Brothers and Laugh-in. You will laugh out loud. I could see where a fan of 2 and 1/2 Men would find this objectionable, but...who cares what they think?

Clever
Q-Anon makeovers, Smart Pillow, Jen and Berries AK-47 flavors, They manage to meet us at our most pitiful. Funny in a, this is a truly shallow, sick world, kinda way.

Shades of a Modern Monty Python
Kind of like SNL today if it were actually funny. Lots of great concept sketches - there's some "high-brow" references in here that are reminiscent of Monty Python in that the viewer is required to understand some not-so pop culture references to get the jokes.
Probably not for everyone - I could see certain people hating this, but I laughed out loud several times while alone and enjoyed the whole season. I can't wait for more!

Edgy fun
Apparently if you want to do this kind of comedy you have to be at least one hemisphere away.

The first great "dirt-bag left" sketch comedy
First off and most importantly, it's hilarious. Skewers meaningless ,"words without actions" politics. If you like podcasts like Chapo or The Dollop you may well love this show.
