Cocktales is another Comedy Network show aimed at those who shave above the neck. It is quite original but it left me cold. Then again, I am not the target demographic for it. This 10 half-hour episode series premieres Friday September 23 at 10 p.m.
A bunch of guys, different ones in each episode sit around a poker table and shoot the shit. They are from every walk of life but always between 22 and 35. It would seem the guys imbibed quite a bit during the taping as a couple do not seem to feel much pain.
Stories in the opening episode include going to a cockfight, the adventures of a video club clerk, a story about a rub and tug, a frat boy initiation night involving a stripper, another rub and tug, a 6’5” stripper, and a guy with a supersoaker and a mission.
The stories and their tellers are uneven. One thing that works is that none of these tales, tall or not, run long so there are a lot of different stories in each Cocktale.
If you are a male between 16 and thirty something, this show is probably going to amuse you. Otherwise, pass.
