The Comedians 111 Header

The Comedians
Season 1 Episode 11 “Red, White, And Working Blue”
Directed by Richie Keen
Written by Ben Wexler
Starring Billy Crystal, Josh Gad, Larry Charles, Stephnie Weir, Max Oberg, Megan Ferguson
FX
Air Date: Thursday, June 18th, 2015 10pm

The Comedians celebrated the 4th of July tonight, doing so with the same awkwardness they’ve approached the majority of this first season. The show centers around a particular sketch written by Josh Gad, in which he is a herpes-laden porn star and Billy Crystal is a dad walking his daughter to her first day… as a porn star. Billy ponders why he must “always play the dad.” A theme of the season is the relationship between two comedians of different ages and eras, and that plays heavy in tonight’s episode.

The Comedians 110 Header

The Comedians
Season 1 Episode 10 “Misdirection”
Directed by Larry Charles
Written by Eric Ledgin
Starring Billy Crystal, Josh Gad, Larry Charles, Stephnie Weir, Max Oberg, Megan Ferguson, Rob Reiner, Adam Campbell
FX
Air Date: Thursday, June 11th, 2015 10pm

The Comedians – the show about the making of a show on FX starring the newest Martin & Lewis, Billy Crystal and Josh Gad, was off to a bit of a rocky start, as they struggled find an identity to the show early on. The humor tended to fall on the awkward sophomoric side, but as the season went on, I found myself loving the way Billy and Josh play off one another. The main dynamic is old school veteran comedy vs. new generation in-your-face style comedy. I imagine this to be not too far off from their natural selves. As we begin this week’s episode, Mitch (Max Oberg) has stepped into the director’s chair for a Curious George sketch (now a fully grown alcoholic ape), with an older Man in the Yellow Hat. Suffice to say his directorial style doesn’t mesh with the actors and they go to Kristen (Stephnie Weir).

The Comedians 108 Charity

The Comedians
Season 1 Episode 8 “Charity”
Directed by Larry Charles
Written by Matt Nix, Ben Wexler, Billy Crystal, Josh Gad
Starring Billy Crystal, Josh Gad, Stephnie Weir, Max Oberg
FX
Air Date: Thursday, May 28th, 2015 10pm

After a very reserved and almost heartwarming episode of The Comedians last week, we return to crazy Seinfeld-ian humor on this week’s show. Take a typical ordinary situation, throw some lunacy into it, and it creates some truly awkward and often hilarious comedy. For example… this week’s The Comedians on FX. All Josh Gad wants is to bed the hot barista (Olivia Taylor Dudley). All Billy Crystal wants is to save face and appear to be the virtuous elder statesmen. To quote The Rolling Stones, “You can’t always get what you want.”
