Wow! I just listened to them all while I was lying in bed next to my wife and I think I woke her up about 20 times when I laughed out loud at a few of Katz's segments! I really enjoyed the podcast number 8 where he has an old friend revisit (H. Jon Benjamin and his great voice!!) and talk about log rolling. I also enjoyed his conversation with the dating service and when he describes himself being riddled with eczema is just hilarious!!!! (By the way, Jon…bring back H.Jon Benjamin more often…when you two are together, I could listen to you two talk forever; even if it is about the most mundane of topics…it is just priceless when you both have a dialogue between each other….I can’t quite figure it out, but there is something special there!!)
What I really enjoy about this podcast is that it brings back the magic of the show Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, because it is basically just Jon Katz doing his thing with this crazy cast of characters around him and it is just magical how he reacts to everything around him. I am also very saddened to hear that JK has Multiple Sclerosis, so I hope he is ok...he is such a great man.
There is something very genuine about his humor and how he presents it....I guess that is what made his comedy central show so special. I also love his calls to directory assistance; like the one where he says "howareyou" and she says, "fine, how are you" and he says, no, I was looking for a "Howard Uye" or to something of that effect.
Anyhow, this is genius and I will be looking forward to more podcasts from one of my favorite comedians of all time! Jonathan Katz, if you are reading this review, you are ONE special comedian and I hope you all the best with your life and everything you do. Thanks for making me smile!
