Greatness not found on "Russell Simmons Presents Stand Up at the El Rey"

In my book, the difference between a bad stand up and a good stand up are the jokes, and the difference between a good stand up and a great stand up is the flow.

The flow is the storytelling, the pace, the intelligence that turns a bunch of lines into a seamless monologue.

By that standard, the six stand ups I saw on the first two episodes of "Russell Simmons Presents Stand Up At The El Rey" (Comedy Central, 11 tonight) range from bad to the potential of being good. Sadly, greatness was not achieved.
