What's interesting is the show allows for the awkward pauses to be captured, which makes it stylistically unique, especially for American audiences.
I think we're the only jokeless show on television. I mean really, we have no setups and no punch lines. It's not a joke show. There are funny lines and funny moments but again the comedy is born of the human experience and awkward pauses are a great (laughing) part of what it is to be human.
