There isn't a lot of comedy. Phil writes for many other things beside comedy. My amusement comes from his ethnic background. He's the stereotypical Jewish kid from NYC. I grew up in that culture so I find humor in the little quirky things, like skyping his parents for a minute or so during every show to basically to talk about nothing.
He's also a very good producer. He co-wrote the 9/11 TV show that won numerous awards.
I also enjoy it because it's not so scripted like most of the food shows now a days. I think he even has his brother behind the camera. You can tell there's not hundreds of hours of editing. I appreciate that in TV now.
