Mulaney - Sienfield wanna be, swing and a miss.
12 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

So our lead here, Mulaney, is a an award winning writer and comedian, neat. The show has a another strong supporting established comedian, Martin Short, sounds even better right? But unfortunately these two pillars are missing the third essential one to hold up the show, and that is any actual qualities of a show. It has virtually no real story, a show about nothing eh? Sound familiar? Not so bad, there are tons of shows about nothing. How about the jokes? We'll on paper I'm sure they're great, out of these folk's mouths, they sound forced and are just horrible. But even that isn't a show killer. Bad jokes and terrible actors are abound on successful TV shows. What puts the death nail into this steaming pile of a show is Mulaney himself. The guy just can't act, not even a little. It's not bad acting, it's non-existent acting, like watching a mannequin who sort of sounds like 'Raymond' awkwardly read lines like a 3rd grader public speaking in front of his class for the first time. It's awkward and painful to watch him speak, worse than a fork on a chalk board painful. He obviously has no idea what he's doing, and whoever green light this, well warm up that resume cause your days are numbered. So go ahead and skip Mulaney, you're not missing anything.
