Did You Know?


Nancy Hower (Co-Creator/ Director) admitted in an interview that because of the completely improvised script of the show, she will keep a camera focused on John Lehr (Sheriff Hoyle) at all times during a scene. This allows her to capture all of Johns performance as he has a tendency to move around a lot. See more »

Incredible and Hilarious
21 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

Hands down, one of the funniest comedies on TV. Watching Quickdraw is like watching a great improv show. The cast members do an excellent job playing off each other; the script is witty, the jokes can be subtle and smart or in-your-face slapstick and silly. The show knows its audience and eagerly plays with the boundaries of adult humor set for a show not on HBO. The show takes on what could be difficult political and social issues and makes them hilarious regardless of where you are on the political spectrum. What other show on TV can successfully pull off discussing the dilemma of 'crotch rot' and the issue of women's suffrage in the same episode? Race, sexual orientation, women's rights, religion and sexual liberation are common show topics and Quickdraw deals with them all beautifully. The show is a modern classic in the making and a new reason to look forward to Thursdays.
