Parents, let your kids watch it in a dark room with no one else around for a few hours with some goldfish to snack on. It’s a great show and is very good! Perfect for your 2 year olds!

Name a single show where the host shoots the co-host with a gun, to then make a Twin Peaks reference.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (16 ):

Whether or not this spoof tickles your funny bone depends on what you look for in comedy. If you don't like to think too hard (or at all) about what you're watching, you'll get some laughs from the nonsensical nature of Andre's unique style. But if you want content with even a modicum of a cerebral component or cleverness to it, you definitely won't find it here.

Andre's flash-in-the-pan segments are brief but, strung together, compose a show's worth of mindless entertainment. Some might find it funny, but there are better choices for teens who are ready for edgy humor and late-night fare than Andre's heavy leaning on the shock value of strong language, sexual crudity, and degrading humor aimed at celebrities for laughs.
