Comedy Central’s ‘Review’ Might Be the Funniest New Show of 2014

Comedy Central has had a recent hot streak of great, original, and offbeat programming. Kroll Show, Inside Amy Schumer, and Key & Peele all take creative approaches to sketch comedy, and each has, in its own unique way, reinvigorated the genre as a whole. Nathan For You‘s deadpan humor made it one of the standout shows of last year, and Broad City is currently having one of the strongest first seasons I’ve ever seen. Review, premiering tonight, is the newest member of the Comedy Central family, and it’s a perfect fit. It’s a strange and somewhat twisted program, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up being the funniest show to premiere in 2014. … Read More

Broad City Season 1 Episode 7 Recap: “Hurricane Wanda”

I have previously written about how the nonstop movement and energy is one of the main reasons why Broad City is so much fun to watch every week. Broad City is best when it sets its broads loose in the city. Last week’s fantastic “Stolen Phone” was a great example of how the show fully utilizes its setting and brings it into the overall plot of the episode, often treating it as a necessary character. New York City is a concrete jungle gym for Abbi and Ilana and it’s thrilling to watch them play. “Hurricane Wanda” slightly lacked the nonstop motion of the series’ earlier episodes and that may be why it’s my least favorite of the bunch so far (which sounds more negative than it is — I definitely still liked it). It’s still a great episode of television, just a little slow for Broad City. … Read More

Meet This Year's Most Hilarious People

While Comedy Awards doesn’t actually air until this Sunday night on Comedy Central, the winners were announced at a ceremony taped over the weekend, and we have to admit that we’re pretty pleased with the outcome. (Warning: Stop reading now if you’d like to be surprised when you watch — which we’re thinking you definitely should, based on this photo alone.) Sure, there were some egregious snubs in the nominations, but any show where Louis C.K. and Bridesmaids clean house and Parks & Recreation manages to win more awards than Modern Family is aces in our book. Also, a big congrats to longtime Flavorpill favorite Hannibal Buress, who beat out some serious competition to nab the award for Club Comic. Click through to view the full list of winners, which we spotted thanks to Splitsider, and let us know if you agree with their picks in the comments. … Read More
