‘Brockmire’: Watch Hank Azaria Discover the Terrifying World of Asmr YouTube Videos

25 April 2017 11:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When you’re a famous baseball announcer who’s fallen from glory, you’ll do anything to get back on top… including impressions of animated cats and experimenting with Asmr.

This is where we find Hank Azaria’s Jim Brockmire in this week’s episode, “Breakout Year.” In a bid to keep himself in the cultural conversation — and maintain the value of his name — the former professional baseball commentator voices a cat named “Jim Brockmeower” and then learns about a niche market with big viewership on YouTube.

In the clip below, Brockmire — with the help of techno-savy intern Charles (Tyrel Jackson Williams) — shows just how far he’ll go (and where he won’t) in a sharp, funny snippet from the latest episode.

IFC has renewed Brockmire for a second season — just hours before the new, Hank Azaria-led comedy steps up to the plate.

Brockmire, which stars its executive producer Azaria (The Simpsons) as the titular character, follows a famous baseball announcer 10 years after a public meltdown (triggered by his learning of his wife’s infidelity) that ruined his reputation and made him a viral sensation. The show’s cast also includes Amanda Peet (Togetherness) as the strong-willed owner of the Morristown Frackers minor league team and Tyrel Jackson Williams (Lab Rats) as an social media-savvy intern.

‘Brockmire’ Review: IFC Has A Great Hank Azaria, Amanda Peet Rom-Com With a Baseball Problem

5 April 2017 7:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One of the crown jewels in IFC’s original programming lineup is their category-eluding “Documentary Now!,” a dutiful series of pitch-perfect documentary parodies that, by some great beneficence, has managed to stay on air for multiple seasons. On its surface, some of that show’s standout elements also power “Brockmire,” the network’s new comedy focusing on a fallen baseball play-by-play announcer who’s given a second chance with a minor league outfit.

While lower-level professional sports has a fandom as niche as that for classic nonfiction filmmaking — complete with a specific visual style and an upper echelon of legendary figures — the eight-episode first season still struggles to find the level of specificity that makes other IFC comedies hum.

Brockmire” still has its appeals: As the title character, Hank Azaria brings that same level of verbal versatility and comedic bona fides that Bill Hader and Fred Armisen bring to their program. »

TV Review: ‘Brockmire,’ Starring Hank Azaria

31 March 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hank Azaria has spent his career playing some kind or another of comic relief — whether that is his well-known voice acting work on “The Simpsons” or his live-action arcs on shows like “Mad About You” and “Friends.” He has the remarkable ability to mold his voice to any number of situations and characters, some less culturally sensitive than others; it makes him a kind of chameleon of a comic actor, one where his own voice is sometimes hard to hear underneath all the impressions.

Which is why it is so fitting — and unexpectedly affecting — that Azaria plays a plaid-blazer wearing baseball announcer named Jim Brockmire, whose biggest claim to fame is an on-air meltdown he had in 2007,

hours after discovering his wife in a compromising position. The show begins after 10 years of exile abroad, when he returns stateside only to discover that his greatest disgrace has become one of the first viral memes. (His »
