The Bronx Bunny Show not for the easily offended

It’s crude. It’s crass. It’s lewd and lascivious.

Meet The Bronx Bunny, a new comedy from the Starz network that premieres tonight at 11:45 p.m. ET.

Despite that this show features two furry puppets, it’s most certainly NOT for kids. This isn’t Sesame Street, folks. If you are easily offended, then this one isn’t for you.

The Bronx Bunny is a foul-mouthed celebrity-struck rabbit, who somehow got his own talk show. He hosts it from his seedy apartment, along with his cranky, cigarette-smoking sidekick pal, a panda named Teddy T, who was once an inmate of the famous Bronx Zoo.

There is no topic these two characters won’t discuss with their celebrity guests. In fact, they take pride in the fact that the questions they ask to celebrities would never be asked on Leno, Letterman or Oprah.

The humor is adolescent, with plenty of bathroom jokes and sexual jokes. (Think South Park but with lots of F bombs.) The language is severe. Those two puppets have potty mouths that would make Tony Soprano blush.

The first guest to star is actor/talk-show host Howie Mandel. The running joke is about Howie’s obsessive-compulsive germ fetish. Filthy Teddy T makes Howie crazy, as does the conditions of the Bronx Bunny’s apartment.

Bunny and Teddy T are scheduled to unleash their questions on a list of other celebrities too this season, including Eric Roberts (Heroes); Kelly Carlson of (Nip/Tuck); Star Trek’s George Takei; Joely Fisher (‘Til Death); and Saved by the Bell’s Dustin Diamond.
