Andy Daly hilariously wanders onto the Conan set as the ghost of game shows past

Anyone familiar with Andy Daly’s singularly impressive body of work knows there’s no one better at portraying outwardly chipper everymen whose beaming geniality barely conceals an existential cistern teeming with all manner of squirming, submerged frustrations, insecurities, and outright madness. From his cavalcade of…

Earwolf is bringing back The Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project for a second demented season

Earwolf’s The Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project was one of the comedy gems of 2014, as pure a distillation of the Review star’s demented brilliance as you might ever hope to listen to. Featuring eight of the inevitably horrible human beings who live in Daly’s brain, the show presented itself as a series of pilots for…

Jon Hamm, Rhea Seehorn, and more talk “science” in this Stinker Lets Loose audiobook exclusive

A stellar cast gathers to narrate Stinker Lets Loose, the purportedly resurfaced novelization of a supposedly beloved ’70s trucker film of the same name. The story is part Smokey And The Bandit trilogy, part Every Which Way But Loose; the titular Stinker leads lawmen on a wild chase that apparently includes a chimp.…

Review packs it in with a heart-stopping series finale

A

We all know that television reviews necessarily discuss the events and outcome of a given episode. I rarely warn readers not to read a review before viewing the episode. But “Cryogenics, Lightning, Last Review” warrants an exception. If you’ve been following along with the masterpiece that is Review, don’t shortchange…

Asking “Who cares how many stars?” turns Review topsy-turvy

A

Despite his bravado about his fated place in the universe, it doesn’t take much to send Forrest MacNeil’s world topsy-turvy. “Co-host, Ass-slap, Helen Keller, Forgiveness” does it several times with breathtaking ease. But the things that should send Forrest reeling are never the things that do send him reeling.

Review leaps into its final season with confidence, joy, and lots of barf

A

You can’t go home again, so the saying goes. You can’t step in the same river twice… or, uh, you can’t leap into the same river, dragging your colleague and closest remaining friend with you, twice. So how does a show recover from its own spectacular season-ending (and at the time, potentially series-ending) plunge…

Andy Daly, Scott Aukerman, and a bunch of comedy ringers all need rides in the Drive Share trailer

Uber and Lyft would probably be less of a nightmare if you were guaranteed to interact with at least one brilliant comedy mind over the course of your amateur taxi trip. Or maybe not, if the trailer for go90’s new series Drive Share is anything to go off of: the promo features comedy ringers like Natasha Leggero,…

It’s a Comedy Bang! Bang! to be thankful for as the end approaches

A

How sharper than a turkey’s beak it is to have a thankless audience. But “Mike Colter Wears A Pink Button Up And Black Boots” won’t have that problem. Who could be ungrateful for one last Thanksgiving from a show that loves its holiday episodes like Comedy Bang! Bang! does? That’s doubly true when the show features…

Watch Andy Daly’s will to live slowly fade in this 3-and-a-half hour whiskey ad

One of the great glories of Andy Daly’s Review is watching his “real life critic” realize he’s in way over his head with some new, preposterous challenge, but refuse to stop smiling. In a new video, in which Daly speaks uninterrupted about whiskey for three-and-a-half hours, you can watch that fade occur in real time.

Andy Daly launches new podcast featuring “Weird Al” and Rachel Bloom

The Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project might be the funniest thing Scott Aukerman’s Earwolf network has ever released, with its wide buffet of podcast concepts serving as the perfect vehicle for Daly’s twin gifts for world-building and creating cheerfully awful human beings. Sadly, it only ran for a single season…
