This Week in Comedy: Bird up! Eric Andre has a new prank film coming out. Bad Trip, which Andre stars in, co-wrote, and also produced, “follows two best friends as they go on a cross-country road trip full of hilarious, inventive pranks, pulling its real-life audience into the mayhem.” The film, which co-stars Lil Rel Howery and Tiffany Haddish, was originally slated for a theatrical release last April, but got shelved due to the pandemic. It comes out on Netflix this Friday.
Also this week, here’s some nostalgia for 90’s kids. Disney+ is taking you back to the ice with The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers. The 10 episode series reunites Emilio Estevez as well as many of the original Ducks. The new series follows a young boy who, after being cut from The Mighty Ducks, starts his own hockey team of underdogs, with the help of Estevez as Gordon Bombay. The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers also debuts Friday.
Plus, it’s time to bid farewell to everyone’s favorite employees at Cloud 9. This Thursday, there’s a special hour-long series finale of Superstore. Despite average reviews when it debuted, the show has managed to build up a loyal fan base over the past six seasons. A fan base significant enough that they’re already working on a spin-off that will focus on the characters Bo and Cheyenne. So at least fans will still have that to look forward to.
And finally, Maya Rudolph is returning to Saturday Night Live. Yes, we know that she’s been on hand multiple times this season to play Kamala Harris, but this time, she’ll be hosting for the second time. And joining her as musical guest is Jack Harlow.
