Tv Season Info
The Birthday Boys isn't something to write home about, but it does sustain itself.
The Birthday Boys is a consistently funny show for viewers who are regular consumers of pop culture and recognize the elements from TV and film that are being spoofed.
Though it's the group's first TV show, they're fully in tune with each other's timing and sensibility; every sketch on The Birthday Boys feels fully formed.
Is IFC's The Birthday Boys hilarious and weird and wonderful, or do I just miss HBO's great, long-ago-canceled sketch classic Mr. Show With Bob and David? Probably the latter. But I'll take it anyway.
If you are reaching the saturation point with this type of sketch work, The Birthday Boys may cause you to sigh at the sameness of it all. But if you've stayed away from those other yucksters, these ones provide fairly consistent midlevel laughs.
