Based only on the first episode, this is a very funny new show from Comedy Central. The pace and editing means that the jokes come at you fast with basically no time to catch your breath. The first episode does a lot of leg work establishing the characters and the world and it does a great job doing so. For people who have watched Reno 911! and Workaholics, South Side will definitely feel familiar in a general sense, but also fresh and new because of how underrepresented Black creators are. There are times where you can feel how the actors are improvising and playing off each other, which is very reminiscent of the other shows I mentioned and it's something I personally love. I love comedies that feel just a bit unpolished.
This show is good. It's fast paced, the characters are great, the world is interesting and it's very funny. I'm definitely tuning in again.
