Watching the pilot was like watching his bit/story get played out. I remember other pieces of the bit that he left out, but this was a good representation of his standup. A lot of the time when comedians who are smart try to tell stories and someone animates them, or does skits based off of the Stand-up it comes across as lame and one dimensional. I can see that some of the jokes could come across as childish, but they managed to keep both the heart and intelligence that Jim presents on stage. How often do comedians or comedy wannabe writers present stories half this crazy and completely leave out the brotherly aspect. How many of those same people would take this story and fail to keep it funny without including seriousness of the situation? The talents of this cast working with the heart, intelligence, and comedic mind of Jim Jefferies should work out to be pretty awesome, even if it keeps it's indie feel.
I hope they bring Bobcat Goldthwait in for SOMETHING, it just feels right.
