Maybe it feels terrible to be in a recession and maybe when were hurting, we get funny. A "clowns-from-our-tears" effect. There are so many good comedies on the telly right now (30 Rock! Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, The Ricky Gervais Show! And tens more,) and even the dicey bet of sketch comedy is having some golden moments. Maybe you saw MTVs Human Giant before Aziz Ansari trundled off to star in the fantastic Parks and Rec? Ansaris co-stars in Human Giant, Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer, have many-splendored careers independent of their collaboration. Huebel shined as super tan bus bench real estate choad Tevin Downey in 2009s I Love You, Man, and hes been making the hilarity rounds on The Office, Reno 911, the newly minted HBO version of Funny or Die Presents
, and lots more. Paul Scheer shows up occasionally on 30 Rock as Kenneth the Pages arch-page-rival Donny Lawson, and you always want more. Tonights show will be straight-up stand-up comedy from two dudes making life a little less crappy.
