The Comedians - Please Stick Around
28 June 2015 | by docorock-2See all my reviews

"The Comedians" is a comedy that dances on the edge of dancing on the edge. As someone who appreciates any viewing that makes me Laugh Out Loud, this show delivers. The chemistry between 'Billy & Josh' was intentionally disconnected in the pilot. They seemed to try to continue that state in the next couple episodes, but there's been a seemingly unavoidable development between these two that can't be denied - they're connecting on screen, intentional or not.

It's great to see Mr Crystal in action again. Josh Gad was the absolute perfect choice to team with. And I adore that this show reintroduces the brilliance of Stephanie Weir to the entertainment world.

"The Comedians" is just plain damn-funny. Every episode somehow proves better than the previous.

Please stick around!
