New Comedy Shows

Men At Work

Four buddies working in a magazine who go through the some ridiculous adventures. Together, the four help each other navigate work, friendship and women. This is one of the surprises of this season, the show is done and its only 10 episodes long but every episode was funnier then the other, these were very different characters in hilarious situations. Two guys are familiar actors but the other two are new to me, but they have a great dynamic, and this feels like the group of guy friends that you have so guys can very much relate to it, and women can have an outlook as to what guys think. If you are looking for a light hearted comedy then this is it.

Anger Management

Charlie Sheen is back and I have to say that he is back to his normal self but with a twist. I didn’t know what to expect from his new show but old ball player working as a psychiatrist with a bunch nut jobs is a pretty good start to his comedy. Four episodes in and I think the show is very worth watching and it will be one of the funny shows of this season. The best part are the small shots they take at 2 & A Half Men, some parts are just funny shots and some are hilarious, but they are all very subtle, and I like where its going.

The Exes

A comedy about three divorced men sharing an apartment across the hall from their female divorce attorney, who is also their landlord. This show jumps right into it, you figure out the dynamic of the group and it gets funnier every episode, each one of them is more colorful then the other and you know most of them from other shows. Kristen Johnson from 3rd Rock From The Sun, and she is the hilarious lawyer in this show, Wayne Knight is one of the divorced guys in the show, you would know him from Seinfeld or “Newman”, thats all I know him as, Newman, then there is also Donal Faison or Dr Turk from Scrubs, he is just as funny in this show, maybe a bit too gimmicky but I’m liking him in this show too.

Comedy Central Roast Of Charlie Sheen

The meltdown of Charlie Sheen over the past 6 months was probably one of the most talked about events in entertainment this year. Nobody could make sense of what this guy was saying or if he really was insane and took too many drugs. I have been used to hearing about him being in trouble for doing one thing or another but this was hilarious. He was talking crap about this boss and everyone in the entertainment industry and saying the weirdest things about Tiger Blood, Winning, Midgets, and Coming from Mars. From being the highest paid man on television to just being the highest man on television, the guy lost his bolts.

It seems he settled things with producers and the company, and settled for a nice cash lump sum and has been appearing in different places looking and sounding, then they announced that they would be roasting Charlie Sheen on Comedy Central. I have seen some of these Roasts and some of them get brutal, and I knew William Shatner & Seth MacFarlane were appearing so I had to see this Roast. The funny part is that they timed it to be at the same time as the season premiere as Two And A Half Men. The Roast was hilarious, some parts were ok but most of it was ridiculous, some of those comedians were brutal and Charlie Sheen finished it off at the end. If you haven’t seen its really worth seeing and entertaining.
