This Week in Comedy: They‘re back! The hosts of Showtime’s Desus & Mero are coming back for a season three. And though we don’t know who they’ve got for season three, given some of the big names they pulled last season – including Joe Biden, Barack Obama, David Letterman, Chris Rock, Jordan Peele, and more – we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us this time around.
Also this week, Maz Jobrani’s new special, Pandemic Warrior, premieres on Peacock. Despite being filmed in Dubai back in 2019, Jobrani went back and added some new material that revolves around the pandemic. Other topics include “ politics, social issues, parenting, and more. Maz Jobrani: Pandemic Warrior streams on Peacock on January 28th.
Plus, mixed-ish is back for a second season. Here is the official synopsis for the season premiere: “After finding out Johan has been pretending to be a different race, Rainbow gets mad, and Alicia and Paul try to find a way to encourage Johan to be proud of being black.” And pairing up with the return of mixed-ish is black-ish, which will be moving to Tuesdays at 9 PM ET.
And finally, Alan Tudyk plays an alien in the new SyFy comedy film Resident Alien. The film revolves around when “an alien crash lands on Earth and must pass himself off as small-town human doctor Harry Vanderspeigle. Arriving with a secret mission to kill all humans, Harry starts off living a simple life…but things get a bit rocky when he’s roped into solving a local murder and realizes he needs to assimilate into his new world.“
