Not very many high-profile comedy shows involve splash zones these days, but you have to imagine that the people sitting in the front few rows while T.J. Miller filmed as HBO special Meticulously Ridiculous were warned ahead of time about the possibility of getting wet. Miller—who plays Erlich Bachman on Silicon Valley—isn’t smashing watermelons or launching marshmallows out of his mouth or anything, but he does show a surprising amount of glee at the simple act of emptying water bottles in ways that do seem meticulously ridiculous. It’s unclear if the water is part of a specific gag or just an overarching shtick, but Miller gets totally soaked either way. He also tells some jokes.

Meticulously Ridiculous will premiere on HBO on June 17.
