It's in the writing.
3 November 2013 | by caseyhardmeyerSee all my reviews

As a huge fan of sketch comedy, I've known its always VERY hit and miss. Even the best, Mr. Show, Ben Stiller Show, the State, Kids In The Hall produced a lot of bad sketches. But I've been so impressed with how consistently well written each episode of the BBoys has been so far. And unlike the plethora of new sketch groups, especially youtube sensations like Good Neighbor, these guys put good writing first, and performance second. None of the ensemble members are trying to score laughs at the expense of the sketch. Where most TV sketch shows lurch awkwardly from bit to bit the Birthday Boys guide the viewer through the show with interweaving sketches, not unlike Mr. Show. But where Mr. Show had a surreal but linear approach to their transitions the Birthday Boys weave their sketches amongst each other with ease. Their second episode Goofy Roofers is a perfect example, silly, self-referential and even a little sweet. Don't expect huge belly laughs, and people that need that in their comedy won't like this. But if you enjoy smart, silly and very well written sketch comedy you need to see this.
