Andy Daly on 'Review' season 2: 'Forrest is even more committed to this show'

5 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Review" was one of the most pleasant TV surprises of 2014, not because we didn't expect fun stuff from star and producer Andy Daly, but because Comedy Central had sat on the show for nearly a year, and then premiered it with minimal fanfare. What seemed like a dump job was instead a delight: a sort of serialized sketch comedy show, held together by Daly as "reviewer of life" Forrest MacNeil, a blandly cheerful doofus willing to experience and then review whatever his audience asked him to. Over the course of the first season, Forrest got addicted to cocaine, ate 15 pancakes in one sitting, had to divorce his wife, then eat 30 pancakes in one sitting, accidentally caused his father-in-law to die in outer space, possibly killed another driver in a road rage incident, and bit by bit watched his entire life burn to the ground for the sake of the show. »

Meet the creator of Review – Comedy Central's best-kept secret

6 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Critically lauded but under the radar of many, Andrew Daly’s Review became a cult TV hit last year. Now as season two starts he explains its oddly captivating human-car-crash appeal

Watching the trailer for the new season of Review, which returns to Comedy Central 30 July made me painfully, distractingly sad. That’s probably not the response one should have to a teaser hinting at several new episodes of a very funny show, but Review is a special case.

The finale of the show’s first season capped off a shockingly effective dramatic arc for hapless protagonist Forrest MacNeil, a man convinced he is capable of reviewing all life experiences for the benefit of the viewing public on his show, Review. Andrew Daly, a comedy veteran, nerd favorite, and mainstream “that guy” (known for his roles as announcer Dick Pepperfield in Semi-Pro and Principal Cutler on Eastbound & Down) credits the »

Review Season 2 Review

19 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Cable has treated writers, directors, and actors kindly for a good long time now, but in terms of volume, no group may have benefited more from the shift toward small-scale television than comedians. From Lucy, to Cosby, to Seinfeld, having your own show used to mean committing half of your year to a network’s schedule. Now, bite-sized season orders and fracturing markets mean that the spoils of cable can be shared by more comedic voices than ever. Comedy Central’s Review was one of last year’s best, laugh-out-loud funniest surprises, and Thursday’s premiere gives little reason to expect anything less than an equally hysterical Season 2.

The secret to Review’s success (which also helps distinguish the show from the Australian series on which it is based) is that it’s the purest delivery system for the mad genius of comedian Andy Daly. »

“Out of the Crossfire, beyond Hardball, this is Crossballs!”

A parody of political debate shows, Crossballs has comedians pose as experts in their field to discuss the issue of the day and pits them against real life experts who are not aware of the farce debate they are participating in. The comedians argue both sides of an issue, be it ridiculous or not, and mine comedy from taking the issue to absurd lengths and goading reactions from the real experts.

Each episode is moderated by Chris Tallman (as a Chris Matthews type), who introduces »

'Battlefield Earth' is no longer the funniest thing to result from Scientology

19 July 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Living in La is enormous fun. Or at least, the potential for enormous fun is always there, provided you actually pay attention and go to things and get out of the house and actually take advantage of the various amazing opportunities that are around. The Ucb Theater is a place I should spend more time. No two ways about it. There are all sorts of things that happen there that I would love to see. Some of those, I hear later or see later, and thank god they make the effort to record so much of it, because I just listened to two of the funniest hours I've heard this year, and it is well worth your time to seek it out. Here's something from the official website of "The Dead Authors Podcast": 826 National is a nonprofit organization that provides strategic leadership, administration, and other resources to ensure the »

Watch: 'Review' Critic Andy Daly Holds Mock Press Conference To Announce Season 2 Return

1 July 2015 12:57 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Comedy Central's mock press conference declared an end to the #FindForrest campaign. After Forrest MacNeil (Andy Daly) quit his job as life critic at the end of "Review" Season 1, the fictional show moved mountains to find him and ensure his return. Not a critic of art, but a critic of life, Forrest will continue to review all of life's intense experiences by living through them.  Read More: The Stealthy Genius of Andy Daly's New Comedy Central Series 'Review' During the panel, an audience member asks, "Why are you coming back to this insane job?" The montage of ridiculous experiences, including a tiger attack, drug addiction, and space exploration gone wrong, made it clear that sound logic was not behind his return. At MacNeil's expense, he will continue to provide a public service -- because although the knowledge he provides may be questionable, "Review" is always good for a laugh. »

'Review' premiere, 'Key & Peele' return lead Comedy Central summer plans

20 May 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Riding an impressive hot streak of originals, Comedy Central is looking to continue that momentum with a slew of summer premieres and returns including the long-awaited -- by some people, at least -- return of "Review." Starring Andy Daly as life reviewer Forrest MacNeil, "Review" was my No.2 show of 2014 and it came in at No.4 on Sepinwall's Top 10. The first season, which had already been held for a while, premiered last March and was done by the start of May. Season 2 premieres on Thursday, July 30 at 10 p.m. and Comedy Central's season description teases life experiences including "bare-knuckle brawling, joining the mile high club, and even leading a cult." Excellent. What of the other premieres? *** Created by Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, "Another Period" is a Gilded Age satire featuring Christina Hendricks, Michael Ian Black, David Koechner, Jason Ritter and more and it'll premiere on Tuesday, June 23 at 10:30 p. »

The stars of Comedy Central put comedy clichés on notice

12 March 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Comedy Central is -- shocker! -- the hub for some of the most inspired funny material on TV today. "The Kroll Show," "Key & Peele," "Workaholics," and "Review" (and I guess "The Daily Show" if you're into that sort of thing) are all one-of-a-kind TV experiences with performers who thrive on sharp, often uncomfortable humor.  So when we had a chance to interview Nick Kroll, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, and Andy Daly of "Review," we had one specific question: Which comedy cliches bother them most? We got a wide variety of answers and one specific, awesome diatribe from Key.  »
