Is This Funny?

It's a pilot for an apparently shelved Jay Mohr pilot called Community Service. I like Mohr, so I'm not sure if I like it just because I like him. It's not bust-a-gut funny, but it's enjoyably amusing.

The other parts are here.

Eh. Just tossing it out there.

One interesting thing is that all these guys who wrote together on SNL -- Mohr, Spade, Sandler, even MacDonald -- hit a lot of the same subject matter and play with the same basic jokes in their later stuff. Not sure why that is. I've always wondered whether Spade copied the robot dance and other physical-comedy gags from Sandler or vice versa or both showed up at the same time doing the same thing.

A less-interesting thing: I think when you do a pilot you use whatever music you like, not worrying about getting the rights. After all, only a few dozen people are going to see it. This show seems to have an awful lot of kinda-expensive music in it for a TV show. And sometimes just a few expensive seconds of it, like starting off with Barroom Blitz for just enough time to have to pay money.

I guess they just put in their dream music in pilots as placeholders, and then, if the show actually gets to air, all of it is replaced by cheap covers by obscure bands or lame orignal music.
