Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

That this show is unpredictable goes without saying for anyone who's watched or listened to any amount of stand-up comedy. There's no telling what will come out of the mouths of some of these comics, and jokes that otherwise might sail over the heads of younger teens will pack more of a punch when they're accompanied by these hilarious -- and oftentimes explicit -- cartoon illustrations. And since many garner laughs from stereotypes of certain body types or personality quirks, it raises issues about tolerance.

That said, Shorties Watchin' Shorties is a must-see for mature fans of stand-up comedy, particularly if your favorite comic's work is featured in some of the sketches. The only thing funnier than watching these comedians onstage themselves is seeing how the show interprets the jokes through animation, and even material you've heard many times takes on a certain freshness with these hilarious visual references.
