As much as I like One Mississippi, I keep finding myself coming back to this quote from another streaming show, Hulu's Difficult People: "When did comedies become half-hour dramas?" Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of half-hour shows that question what it means to be a comedy ... More »
The Good Place, fall's most ambitious new comedy, had its series premiere Monday, with a two-part episode that laid out the rules for the world it's building. It also introduced us to our antiheroine Eleanor Shellstrop, played with mischievous charm by Kristen Bell. Eleanor comes to an unfamiliar...

In One Mississippi, comedian Tig Notaro and series co-creator Diablo Cody tell a largely fictionalized version of Notaro's recent life. If you've listened to the famous Largo set which launched Notaro to comedy mega-stardom or watched the Netflix documentary Tig, it's a story you already know: Over the course of ... More »
That's a wrap on season 3, folks.
Great TV comedies live and die by their subtle asides. On Survivor's Remorse, it doesn't get much better than Cam insisting to Jimmy that a man "can't apologize for something you're not sorry for," only to take a beat and have Reg knowingly look over at Jimmy and surmise, "He ... More »
Last night was the second installment of Roast Battle on Comedy Central. Somewhere between a rap battle and a roast, six comedians took the stage in Montreal to sling insults against at one another. And once again, they were out for blood. The night’s celebrity judges included Whoopi Goldberg and roasting legend Anthony Jeselnik, in […]
Comedy Central’s four-night mini-series, Roast Battle, kicked off last night, broadcasting from the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, and lemme tell you: it was a scorcher. To paraphrase head judge Jeffrey Ross, this show is not for the thin-skinned (and you thick-skinned folks, see a dermatologist). We’ve got the blow by blow after the jump. […]
Can we talk about last night's one and only official showcase for the "Unrepped" New Faces of Comedy for the 2016 Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal? I don't know, can we? Did you even stay for the whole show, dear agent and/or manager? I'm guessing no based on the half-empty house at the […]
I can't think of another TV comedy that's addressed the abortion debate in such a direct, unapologetic manner. Then again, I can't think of another show that addresses deep, universally held human fears through a cast of talking animals, so BoJack Horseman is really cornering a few markets here.On the ...

In the 1984 comedy Splash, there's a running joke where Madison, a mermaid spending her first days on dry land, parrots the words she learned from a bank of televisions at a department store. It leads to exchanges like this one with Allen, the New Yorker who takes her in: ... More »

Orange Is the New Black has reached yet another moment that forces you to stop and think, "Wait, why was this show considered a comedy?" Sure, it's funny that Angie's badass weight-lifting cry is "The lion, the witch, and the wardrobe!" The Judy King plot is still primarily played for ... More »
The first few episodes of season four have leaned heavily on comedy, from the lines in the premiere designed to elicit sardonic snorts (if not all-out laughter), to especially fun developments like Taystee becoming Caputo's new assistant. The flashbacks, too, have ended by pointing upward. Maria was kicked out of ... More »

By now you know who won Season 10 of “The Voice” -- Alisan Porter, the talented mom with the killer pipes who previously found fame as a child actor, most notably playing the title role in the 1991 John Hughes comedy “Curly Sue,” and falling prey to and overcoming an addiction to alcohol somewhere...
In her new Netflix sitcom, Maria Bamford doesn't break the fourth wall so much as she bulldozes it to pieces. Much like her stand-up comedy, Lady Dynamite focuses on Bamford's real-life experiences navigating personal and professional relationships with mental illness. She has a rare knack for playing up the laugh-out-loud ... More »
This week, The Mindy Project delivers a particularly New York-focused episode — obligatory Hamilton storyline included — while also giving us a solid riff on romantic comedy. Let there be no doubt: This is what the show does best. (Danny who?)To get our Hamilton fix, we begin with the "Shulman and Associates ... More »
"Captive" The post Fear the Walking Dead Episode 205 Recap: A Comedy of Errors appeared first on ComingSoon.net.
Archer appreciates the simple joys of language. The show's writers treat English (and, frequently, tidbits from foreign tongues) as a complex plaything to be endlessly reconfigured. The characters often act like comedy writers, amusing themselves with puns and one-liners for their own sake. (When Ray responds to Pam's diss of ... More »
#Gladiators, greetings from sunny Los Angeles! Mama has been traveling and when this episode of Scandal aired, I was in Austin for a comedy festival, eating my weight in barbecue until I got the itis. Suffice it to say, there's a good possibility I might not fit into my bridesmaid's ... More »
