Executive produced by Bob Odenkirk (``Breaking Bad'') and Ben Stiller, ``The Birthday Boys'' is a scripted original sketch show starring the Los Angeles comedy group of the same name. The Birthday Boys are Jefferson Dutton, Dave Ferguson, Mike Hanford, Tim Kalpakis, Matt Kowalick, Mike Mitchell and Chris VanArtsdalen, whose collective credits include ``Parks and Recreation,'' ``The Office,'' ``Portlandia,'' ``Funny or Die,'' ``Comedy Bang! Bang!'' and ``Conan.'' Episodes combine a mix of stand-alone and multiact sketches that twist real-life situations and cultural touchstones, taking a page from absurd yet intelligent classic sketch shows ``Monty Python,'' ``Kids in the Hall'' and Odenkirk's ``Mr. Show With Bob and David.''
Sorry, nothing to recommend for this show.
