| Yo, These Ppl R Funny
So much talent and genius has gone into this show. Lauren, John, Natasha, (just to name a few) you all have filled me. In so many. Ways. Intimate ways. F****** hilarious. Smart as hell. Completely unique in its approach to comedy as a whole. And every artist takes their own social stand point and style into their episode. Really really valuable to see comedians rewarded with specials in this way. This is the only (and very important) thing comedy is lacking. It exists in podcasts and audio entertainment. However in TV its really rare to see a comedian celebrated for their character work. (Except for in SNL but lets be honest, besides the Beyoncé skit when has that been good?) So, thank you, deeply, The Characters, for giving comedians, and f****** talented ones at that, the credit they deserve.
