Funny in a dry wit sort of way. Love Louie Anderson as the mom of this dysfunctional family. It has its funny and heartwarming moments as well as those uncomfortable dysfunctional ones.

Ugh- another charmless performance by Zach Galiefackanis- skip this monotone drone of laughless angst.

At first it seems like a gimmick: a French trained clown, played by Zach Galifianakis, works as a rodeo clown in Bakersfield. Also, he has a twin (also Zach Galifianakis) and his mom is played by comedian Louie Anderson. But it, strangely, works. Much of it has to do with the deadpan tone and the filmmakers' and actors' refusal to turn the characters into jokes. While it has its moments of absurd humor, about half way through the series you realize how existential and depressing it is. The second season may be even better.

Lameness itself- give this one a pass.

Pretty overwhelming comedy. Watch and then think about how funny it will be to watch it again

Pretty underwhelming affair- I guess because I've pretty much soured on Zack Galafanakias as a comedian and actor. Louie Anderson is a genuine surprise as as the mother- he's really good- in fact his performance is the reason I watched the whole season- he's genuinely funny and gives a heartwarming performance- who knew!
