      Kathryn VanArendonk New York Magazine/Vulture When things don't gel with a particular guest, they really just do not gel. When they do, though [it] shifts from a strange and sometimes frustratingly messy talk show into something that looks more like two master fencers really enjoying a chance to spar Sep 5, 2019 Full Review Sean L. McCarthy Decider Good Talk is the talk show America needs right now. Sep 20, 2019 Full Review

      R B This was a funny show with quality guests. Shame it was cancelled. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member While it was weird to have a podcast on TV, this was a fun way for comedians to have conversations beyond what a basic podcast format is. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member This show was weird and awkward and I enjoy Jeselnik as an interviewer. It also got Anthony out of his standard rhythm as a stand-up: Set-up, repeat set-up again, dry punchline. It was nice to not have to hear Anthony repeat his questions twice in this show like he does in his act since he performs for drunks who need help hearing. Anthony should try more long form rambling jokes, and he should study Tig Notaro. He shouldn't be Tig Notaro unless he wants to, but, I think it'd help him change up his act for the better since Tig is dry and Anthony-like (see their interview), but has a completely weird story-flow to her performances that no other act has done. You can't walk into a Tig show and get the joke, you have to stand there for her entire act as she expertly weaves the comedy together. There's definitely no repeating in Tig's act, and I think Anthony could use a little inspiration there. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member I really enjoy the natural funny conversations and seeing their humor in 1 on 1 sets Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Kinda a new take on the late night talk shows! Great how's and refreshing guests You kinda don't know where the show is going. feels like a good podcast Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Great discussions on comedy. Though if you don't like the host it's probably just a 4. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a review
