Stars: Louis C.K., Hadley Delany, Ursula Parker, Pamela Adlon

One of my favorite stand up comedians in a great new Sitcom. This show is very unlike most comedy on TV, and is kinda dark. Usually very (painfully) realistic.

Most will not watch this because the terrible name leads them to think it's s Sex in the City clone. They couldn't be any further from the truth.
