Was the live-show's audience tight? Were the new jokes a little too rough? Did host Christian Spicer do a poor job "setting the table" for a great show? Regardless, the post-show discussion is fantastic and might be the best yet. Listen to the sets of new material from Christian, Leo Flowers (The Kevin Nealon Show), Rajan Dharni (IMPRO(vs)TANDUP, NCCAF), and Nick Rutherford (Fox's ADHD, Comedy Central), and then the awesome post-show discussion and decide for yourself.
