Series Summary
John Mulaney, a stand-up comic searching for his big break, experiences drastic life changes when narcissistic comedy legend and game-show host Lou Cannon hires him as a writer. While the job is everything John was searching for, Lou proves to be a nightmare to work for. John must handle the stress of his new job and the guilt he feels over not being able to be there for his best friends and roommates, a tightly wound personal trainer named Jane, and Motif, a powerhouse comic. Rounding out the people in John's life are Andre, a trust-fund baby who seems to show up at the worst possible moments, and his neighbor Oscar, who often serves as an oracle of sound advice.

  • This contrived, airless comedy is not a good vehicle for him, nor is there much enjoyment to be found in the show's musty supporting characters. Show More

  • Of course, it all comes back to the writing, which is sometimes cringe-worthy here. There are jokes that don’t just hit the floor, they feel almost like a sitcom within a funnier film designed to parody bad TV writing. And the overdone laugh track doesn’t help. Show More

  • The live studio audience is just in your face laughing at the most unfunny, hit the ground with a thud, jokes being thrown left and right by a cast that should know how to deliver their lines better.... It doesn't really get funny until the third episode Show More
