This Week In Comedy: Have you ever been watching a cooking competition show and thought to yourself “Man, if only they were using cannabis in some of these recipes”? Well, wonder no more. Starting tomorrow, comedian Ron Funches is hosting five episodes of Chopped 420 on discovery+. The show itself is similar in tone to the original Chopped, except for the obvious added cannabis component to the dishes. What better way is there to celebrate 4/20??
Also this week, Ed Helms is returning to television in a new series on Peacock. Rutherford Falls, which was created by Helms, Sierra Teller Ornelas, and Michael Schur, “follows two lifelong best friends, Nathan Rutherford (Helms) and Reagan Wells (Jana Schmieding), who find themselves at a crossroads – quite literally – when their sleepy town gets an unexpected wakeup call.” Rutherford Falls lands on Peacock on Thursday.
Plus, A Black Lady Sketch Show is back on HBO. Season two of the critically acclaimed sketch series finds the return of cast members Robin Thede, Gabrielle Dennis and Ashley Nicole Black, plus newcomers Laci Mosley and Skye Townsend. Plus celebrity cameos this season includes Gabrielle Union, Issa Rae, Jesse Williams, Miguel, Skai Jackson, Laz Alonso, Amber Riley, Yvette Nicole Brown, Affion Crockett, and many others.
And finally, Jordan Klepper is taking a look back at 2020. One of the things that helped get us through the pandemic and the tense political season were his segments for The Daily Show that saw him onsite at all of the Trump rallies and protests. And now Klepper is taking a look back at some of his favorite moments, and also reconnecting with some of the interesting folks he met along the way in a new Comedy Central special titled The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Presents Jordan Klepper Fingers The Pulse: Into the MAGAverse.
