Yes...just. Yes.
14 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

Please God keep making this show. And by God I mean Amazon. You have a proved show runner in Louis CK and the best long form stand up since Carlin in Tig Notaro. Give the show air and it will bring you awards. This will bring meaningful story and gut laughs to the masses. One Mississippi reads like beautiful, delicious creative nonfiction that you know has truthiness but is just enough fiction to temper the impact. How often do people actually deal with real suffering and pain in comedy? What else in the pilot class has this depth? Also, I just want an excuse to listen to "On the Bayou" as often as possible. Tig Notaro is funny, like really funny, but she's also one of the most important storytellers of her generation.

Please Keep Making This Show. Please and thank you.
