Comedy that isn't ready for prime time?
How about comedy that isn't ready for television? I'm very excited about a new comedy show produced by Max Brooks (the son of Mel Brooks. Be afraid, be very afraid!) featuring the comedic styling of middle eastern American comedians and humor reveals a lot of the things I've been thinking since even before the war began.

The Watch List is a new Comedy Central Web based TV show produced by comedy central. I've seen previews of it and this looks like something I'd tape... if I could tape it! I'm definitely looking forward to watching it.

Hey I'm watching it right now and so can you!

The show appears to present itself as a series of stand up comedy acts by different Middle Eastern Comedians shown as individual video clips, which come to think of it, is pretty much the same format you would see on TV, except on TV it is a lot harder to skip the ones that annoy you. :-)

[Edit: I just found, This Link which takes you to a page showing just the links for this Web Based TV show.]

I will say though, I actually enjoyed the previews I saw on Yahoo more than any of those four videos which mainly seemed to lamely poke fun at racial profiling.

Whereas the "Naked Trucker and T-Bones Show" preview, which appears at the top of the playlist on this page, seems considerably more controversial. I suspect GW would call at least some of the jokes "subversive".

The "Sarah Silverman Program" preview which follows "The Watch List" episodes is umm... different.
