If this was a late show on Comedy Central I might judge it less harshly. I don't really care for being told a show is "special" and "magic" when I can clearly see it's pedestrian and mediocre. I can think of a slew of comedians more deserving than these two, who come off as rank amateurs on a platform like HBO. They don't bring anything new to the "comedians introducing comedians" type show to speak of. I haven't listened to the pod-cast but I assume that's were all the hype is coming from, it's definitely not from the show itself.
