As with any comedy showcase, the quality is only as good as the performers, so your laugh mileage may vary from episode to episode. The show does a good job of balancing comedy up-and-comers such as Rell Battle and Sabrena Jalees with more high-profile funny folk such as Kristen Schaal (Flight of the Conchords, The Last Man on Earth) and Kurt Braunholder (Bob's Burgers).

Devine's persona as host is a far cry from the sweet-natured "manny" (male nanny) the actor plays on Modern Family but should be appreciated by fans of Workaholics who need a fix between seasons, especially since the show features occasional cameos from his costars. Scripted bits featuring Devine and the week's featured comics (plus a host of extras) are interspersed between the stand-up sets and succeed largely thanks to Devine's charmingly obnoxious vibe. Story lines feature gags about "dick pics," masturbation, kidnapping, and murder (but the violence is slapstick and played for laughs). The comedy sets feature a lot of relationship and dating humor, so there's not a lot here for kids to relate to, though it probably won't stop them from trying.
