3 Comedians, 0 Laughs...but 5 Stars

These 3 are something else...it’s like Québécois comedy directly translated into English and broadcast from Brooklyn.

PattyMo is, to quote his co-host, “the type of guy who thinks knowing a lot of character actors counts as having a personality”. If you enjoy punchlines that are verbatim quotes from 80’s movies or descriptions of video games then he is right for you. I should note that this is not the Patrick Monahan who is the lead singer of Train, the greatest American rock group since Journey. I should also admit that learning this fact saddened me and may have colored my review of this podcast.

Eli always seems excited to start his sentences but gets half way through them before losing steam and confidence in what he was saying. He lets PattyMo talk over him, and it’s all tough on the ears. Oh, except for when he does impersonations. Eli celebrates his own overly embellished impersonations from beginning to end. He’s like Rich Little but without the range, timing or interest in writing jokes. He seems sweet, simple but completely lacking in self awareness.

Kath is cool, but is oblivious to how the others are holding her career back. She could be huge, giant if she were on her own. I’m sure she parties. With Eli and Patty, she is trying to overcome the gravity of working with 2 Yokos.

Anyway, they seem to enjoy each other’s company, so if you’re very lonely or trying to subject a recently renditioned enemy combatant to enhanced interrogation then have at it.

5 stars.
