Storyline

Kenneth becomes part of Tracy's entourage. And, while Kenneth treats Tracy honestly, it turns out that other members of Tracy's entourage have let him win computer and basketball games and even laugh about his jokes, when they are not funny, just to please him. Jenna is voted as one of the funniest women by a magazine and when giving an interview for the magazine gets mis-quoted about the American army troops. This gives her a bad public image. To correct this, she wants to give another interview but it seems as if she has no idea what she is talking about. Jack wants to go into contract negotiations with Josh and while Jack loves it, Liz, who also gets involved in it, hates it. The first meeting turns into a disaster, of course. Written by Anonymous

One of the protesters outside NBC in the final scene is holding a sign bearing the Bible reference 'Ecclestiastes 10:19'. That passage reads, 'Feasts are made for laughter; wine gladdens life, and money meets every need.' See more »

Absolute Hilarity!
8 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fifteenth episode in Season One of 30 Rock has to be the funniest episode yet. While the series consistently features many sharp, clever gags, no episode has been nonstop laugh-out-loud funny until this one. It has many ranges of jokes with anything from pregnant cornbread to gags issued at soon-to-be President Barack Obama.

This episode, "Hard Ball," has Kenneth joining Tracy's entourage with Kenny making a fool of himself, of course. Jack and Liz begins hard-nosed negotiations with Josh, whose contract is about to expire. Finally, after being named one of the funniest women alive, Jenna brings upon herself a scandal after she is misquoted about the American troops.

Overall, this is a hilarious episode and the first one I can genuinely say it's perfect. The comedy is nonstop and the gags are always there and not a single bad one to be found. I rate this episode 10/10.
