A callous stand-up comedian, killed in a car crash, awakens bewildered at the "Club Limbo" where he must perform endlessly, only receiving laughs when he recounting the most painful details about his life.

I liked this one, it reminded me a little of the NG episode "Make me laugh" whis is also about a stand up comedian and I also like. It's short which goes in the episodes favour as it might've been slow if any longer, and I like the image of hell it depicts. 7/10

Average episode for me, but it has some of the quality of the original Zone. A comedian with a douchebag personality gets his just deserts as Rocky Valentine did in the original series. He finds himself repenting for his poor character (in life) for eternity, or at least "2 eons".

5.

A 7 from me. Another good concept, nicely realised and not drawn out.

Nice play on words on the old Henny Youngman line. I like this one a lot, a good story about a douche getting his compuppance, reminiscent ot classic TZ or even NG, for that matter. I voted 8, 4 on my 5 star scale.

I agree with you, note how I compared it to NG's "Make me laugh" above.
