The Gorburger Show 

Review of "The Gorburger Show" 5/2517 by Suzanne
Airs on Comedy Central Sundays 12am

This is a very weird and gross show. Parts of it are funny, but not enough to be worth watching. The premise is short and sweet: A giant gross monster arrives on the set of a Japanese variety show and takes over. It's kind of funny the first time because you don't expect this monster to arrive and start literally tearing people limb-from-limb, and then you certainly don't expect him to take over the show.

After that, he just hosts the show, and it's not very funny. This show is from a "Funny or Die" sketch, and it probably should have stayed one.

MORE INFORMATION:

The Gorburger Show features a giant blue extraterrestrial (voiced by T.J. Miller, Silicon Valley) who, after invading a Japanese television variety show and enslaving its staff, settles in as host in an attempt to understand what it means to be human. The Gorburger Show features celebrity interviews, musical guests, strange games and other random happenings. Guests include Rob Corddry, Larry King, Tig Notaro, Dr. Drew Pinsky, Reggie Watts and more.

The Gorburger Show is executive produced by T.J. Miller, who voices and puppets the title character. The show is created by the Director Brothers (Ryan McNeely and Josh Martin) who also write, direct, and executive produce the series. The eight-episode season is executive produced by Sean Boyle for Funny Or Die and produced by Caviar. Ian Friedman, Rachel Olson and Kellyn Parker are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.

The Gorburger Show previously produced 19 episodes over two seasons as a Funny Or Die digital series. It is the latest Comedy Central series to migrate from its origins as short-form to long-form, joining Drunk History, Broad City, Workaholics, Idiotsitter, Jeff & Some Aliens, This Is Not Happening and the upcoming Hood Adjacent.
