Comedian John Mulaney talks about his milk toast boyish looks, his childhood, his Jewish girlfriend, his gayish charm, his favorite TV shows, Ice-T, a homeless person he met in N.Y., and a prostate exam with Batman.
John Mulaney relays stories from his childhood and Saturday Night Live (1975), eviscerates the value of college, and laments getting older in this comedy special. Other topics include the church, his family, Trump and pedophiles abducting kids.
Deputy Police Chief Brenda Johnson runs the Priority Homicide Division of the LAPD with an unorthodox style. Her innate ability to read people and obtain confessions helps her and her team solve the city's toughest, most sensitive cases.
Not the real down-to-earth, raw comedy I hoped it would be. Laugh tracks and cheesy acting
I've watched John Mulaney's stand up and seen him on quite a few talks shows. I found his stand up quite funny, and he seems like a great guy, so I was interested in seeing what his show was like. During his stand up bit at the beginning of the first episode I was thinking to myself "This show is going to be great". Then the show began. I just can't their using a live audience. If you like shows with live audience you might be able to get into this.
I can't stand live audiences and can't believe that any comedy to come out since the early 2000s still uses them. I was really hoping this show was going to have a very real and down-to-earth feel to it like Louis. But instead I got a really cheesy cookie cutter sit-com that reminds me of 90% of the other sit-coms with laugh tracks.
The laugh track (or live audience) isn't the only problem I have though, the acting seems forced to me and the situations unrealistic. Anyone who's a fan of realistic comedy without Laugh tracks and cheesy little gimmicks, I recommend staying away from this show.
I don't want to give this a rating because it might just have to do with me not liking laugh tracks.
