Great work
21 August 2015 | by mylifeisbigcomedySee all my reviews

I just watched the new mockumentary show with my favorite comedians and I satisfied with what I saw there.

First episode that parodies Grey Gardens makes me laugh really hard and the biggest plus of the show is that it's seems very attractive and naturally. I mean, if you stop thinking that it's a parody on few minutes then you can truly believe that it's a real film.

Work of writers, acting of actors and design of clothes that they were wearing, everything is awesome. I want to mention Bill Hader because, how I think, he's made an excellent work on his role. Lil' Vevie is something I really scared of. And this can mean that parody became to something more.

Second episode was little strained but still have a lot of funny moments.

I can call myself a big fan of these guys but objectively Documentary Now! is one of the best show in last 5 years.
