Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

From irreverent to just plain kooky, the series features lots of fast-paced banter designed to make you laugh out loud. Billy Eichner is funny in his own right, but the antics of the guest celebs and the reactions of the folks he approaches heighten the experience.

It's not mean-spirited, but there's some strong -- and sometimes crude -- material here that that won't appeal to everyone. Nonetheless, Eichner, who writes and produces the show, demonstrates a quick wit that is as smart as much as it is humorous. Ultimately, it's just a playful and lively thirty-minute show designed to make you chuckle (and maybe teach a few pop culture tidbits!).
