Storyline

During the 1970's Tammi (pronounced TA-mee) Tyler was one of the stars of the sitcom "Here Comes Corky." Her acting career was then cut short unexpectedly when, after eating a cupcake laced with PCP, she killed her costar, Captain Billy. In the intervening years Tammi grew up amid obscurity. Now, Tammi was employed by the Funky Fox Cafe in the San Fernando Valley's Plaza del Toro shopping center, and was hoping for a comeback. As she explained to barmaid Patti in the first episode, she hoped the marry the next man to visit the Funky Fox. Embarrassingly, it turned out to be Harve Krudup who owned the Starbrite Cleaners laundry store at the shopping center. Tammi felt that the store was part of a Beverly Hills-based chain, only to realize that it was the only laundry store Harve owned. Tammi's attempts to make a comeback in Hollywood formed most of the stories for this sitcom. Written by Dan Gates

Reasons to Live #4: Strip Mall
26 July 2000 | by (New Orleans, LA) – See all my reviews

In this age where success is the morning and evening star, and standards of personal perfection rise faster than the Dow, I find it deeply touching that the talented and versatile Julie Brown has created a show for all of us who ever felt like life is trying to scrape us off its shoes.

Of course I'm referring to Comedy Central's new series: Strip Mall.

Unlike some of her other efforts, Julie made this an ensemble work. It's a wise move for a woman whose comedic nuances have been compared to vocal shadings of King Kong. Thus, where she might otherwise fade into the background, she has an outstanding cast who show her to her best advantage.

For instance, the Chinese restaurant owner, a broad, tough middle-aged lesbian whose sexy young lover/waitress constantly provokes her jealousy. (The dialogue is adult, so you may want to treat the kiddies to some subway tokens and shoo them away)

Julie Brown plays former child star Tammy ("It's TiMI!"), who at an early age butchered...well, you'll see. Other characters include: her confidant, a barmaid who opens every conversation with "I have a plate in my head"; a Russian mafia smuggler running a porn factory; Tammy's husband with the world's largest hemmoroid; an unassuming, reluctant porn director and his friend, a late-blooming camera man... I could go on at length.

As a rule, all this would make a show cloyingly rich , like a meal of baklavah and honey milk shakes. But the writing is nimble, and the editing trims the humor to a blur of stinging bantam-weight punches. At first glance it seems like a crude copy of crude shows. Pay attention for five minutes and if you have half a brain you'll discover one of the sharpest and most hilarious parodies you'll ever see.

I recommend it to anyone who likes David and Amy Sedaris, South Park, Strangers with Candy or (Movie buffs) Shakes the Clown. I emphatically do not recommend it to anyone who would admit to seeing Patch Adams.
