Storyline

Danny Burton is a 30-ish carefree single guy who has watched most of his friends move on to serious relationships. When his last remaining friend Shannon moves out to get married, Danny searches for a new roommate. A promising candidate is Justin, the owner of Black Eyes Bar in Detroit (frequently mispronounced "Black Guys Bar"). Justin and his friends - the nerdy Burski, oddball Shelly, and recently out-of-the-closet gay guy Brett - all have certain qualities that make them appear "undateable". While Danny himself has good luck getting women into bed, he is unable or unwilling to form a lasting commitment with any of them. Danny's attractive sister, Leslie, has similar fears about being undateable, having the "baggage" of being a mid-30s divorcee. Written by Anonymous

Live Comedy Embraced
30 October 2015 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

Now in its second season (I did not watch the first), "Undateable" is a show with an unusual conceit: not only is the action live, but the actors acknowledge that, and the show centers on that fact. The actors interact with the audience. Cameras show the audience in the studio. They have a live band that interacts with the actors and the audience. In short, the concept of "breaking" while in character is not only acceptable, but encouraged.

I have seen criticisms in the posts saying that such breaking is "amateurish". Well, this is a comedy; it's not like they are performing "Hamlet". And when it's intentional, it's not amateurish.

I have attended many plays, both amateur and professional. Some of the funniest moments I have seen onstage involved actors breaking character and embracing or enchancing the humor in the situation. What's interesting is that it happens (almost) exclusively with professionals. Amateurs are not secure enough to take the risk. So it's not amateurish.

That being said, this show is not for everyone, because not everyone will appreciate that conceit. It can come across as too cute if not controlled, which is where the director comes in.

In "Undateable", they even have recognizable guests who play "themselves".

And they sometimes treat their fellow actor as both the character and as the actor playing that character.

For me, this is like attending a play, keeping the immediacy and the risk of a live performance.
