"An artistic genre all it's own! Very funny people telling unusually honest stories." (Ira Glass, This American Life)
"A comedy be-in!" (Rolling Stone)
"Original, deep, smart, surprising, and very funny!" (The Onion)
I cannot believe the paucity of the humour in this Un-cabaret un-comedy.
If it were better, it would be mediocre. It sounds like the "comedians" are reading their scripts to a canned audience.
South Africans would describe this book as "kak".
