Quotes

Aziz: They say the hardest part of rollerblading is telling your parents that you're gay and um I gotta say I found that to be true today. I always thought that was some sort of joke some sort of weird... I went over there and rented the roller blades from this gentleman Clarence and signed the forms and then said have you told your parents you're gay? And I said no and they said we can't give you these roller blades. And I was like I always thought that was a joke. And they said No its not. So I ...

Season 1: Lack of consistently good characters to match the creative one-offs does really limit it to being a solid sketch show rather than a really good or great one
20 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

Off the back of a bit on The Sound of Young America I decided to check out this show and found it to be pretty much what I would have expected from an MTV sketch show. By this I mean that it is undeniably college humour but this is not to say that it is weak or somehow only relatable to college students. Rather it is quick-fire and relies on silliness done in a creative and funny way. Mostly the show works because it is full of twisted ideas, many of which are clever and some of which are a little obvious but still funny as bits.

This is not to say that it is perfect or the most hilarious thing ever (as some have suggested). The problem is that it doesn't have that many really good repeat characters. Some of those that make up the reoccurring creations are not able to carry the load because of them being rather one joke affairs, funny first time and maybe second time but not consistent enough. These reoccurring characters do still produce amusement though and there are exceptions to the rule that work really well. This puts a lot more pressure on the writers to deliver short, sharp ideas and it does produce some weaker moments. It is a matter of taste but I also found the fast editing and loud music between bits to be distracting and a little jarring – but that is probably me getting older.

The cast deliver really well though and always put a lot into their sketches. Scheer is pretty good although relies on his geeky looks. I like Huebel because he has the look and build of a comedian playing it straight while still being funny. Ansari is probably the best of the three as he brings an energy and style to the show that makes him stick in the memory. Overall Human Giant is pretty funny stiff and I did quite enjoy it. I may check it out if they ever release a DVD of season 2 but I will temper that by saying that the lack of consistently good characters to match the creative one-offs does really limit it to being a solid sketch show rather than a really good or great one.
