Hyman, a natural urbanite, hyperaware of the finer things--but “not gay”--reluctantly accepts the “metrosexual” label. A stand-up comedian, he is the perfect reader for his stories of a smart man who puts himself in stupid situations, here and abroad. His voice is deep, almost harsh, yet precise and ironic. But he’s better off being himself than reaching for a joke; his careful, heartfelt honesty in telling of a lost love makes some of his other material seem puerile and strained. Despite the claims of its packaging, this program is not hilarious or even, for the most part, funny; but it’s often involving and amusing, and sometimes affecting.
