Obnoxious characters that are very funny
As a fan of both Billy Eichner and Amy Poehler I was hoping for something good out of them and they definitely didn't disappoint.
The show reminds me of my favorite comedy right now "Veep" in that it moves very quickly and if you're not paying attention the comedy can sometimes fly right by you.
Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner play comedians that are trying to get their big break in show business but keep coming up short. The situations they get themselves in are very funny and complex. The supporting cast is very good as well. James Urbaniak plays Julie's boyfriend that works at PBS. But my favorite is Andrea Martin that plays Julie's mother. I loved Andrea back in the SCTV days and it's great to see her back on TV.
Now I absolutely hate pop culture and that whole celebrity obsessed scene but I love how Julie and Billy make fun of it using little quips and references. The list of people that make cameo appearances is pretty impressive too.
If you're not fast enough to pick up on the jokes or you like more traditional comedies, then you might not like Difficult People which might explain some of the low review scores. But if you have a sophisticated sense of humor and an open mind then you're probably going to love it.
