Critic Reviews for The Comedy Store Season 1

Had "The Comedy Store" been more focused on story and less on free-wheeling chats, it might have accurately captured The Store as Binder and so many other comedians see it.

The Comedy Store shows that comedy is serious business. But as examined here, it's also very inspirational and heartwarming - and very, very funny.

Any time somebody doesn't quite recall or can't put together the careful construction of a joke, the archival footage of performances from all of the Comedy Store stages is remarkable.

A far better salute to the comedy hey day than the network's "I'm Dying Up Here."

I do like The Comedy Store, but really only for its nostalgic value. I genuinely enjoy listening to old-timers talk about the good-old-days.
