Critic Reviews for Astronomy Club: The Sketch Show Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

Episodes in this first season, each around 20 minutes, make for such addictive viewing that I had to resist bingeing them all at once.

Astronomy Club immediately found its sweet spot by navigating wry social commentary and wild observational humor.

Astronomy Club is a delightful sketch comedy show for a number of reasons, but I'm sure its stars would be happy to know that, if this were an episode of Black Men Can't Jump..., the series would get a raised black fist.

Dec 16, 2019 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

With only six episodes, there's not a whole lot of time for everyone to differentiate themselves, and yet the Astronomy Club manages it just fine by making the time it does have count.

Dec 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Whip-smart and absolutely hilarious, this skit show nails every topic it takes on, with an absurdity and wit that rival classic sketch comedies like Saturday Night Live, Key & Peele, and The Kids in the Hall.

Dec 30, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The finished product, in all its glorious eccentricity, is out of this world.

Dec 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Not all the sketches work, but they've mastered the group game.

Dec 17, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Astronomy Club presents a balanced comedy diet, equal parts pop-culture parody, commentary on the contemporary black American experience, and evergreen satire.

Audience Reviews for Astronomy Club: The Sketch Show: Season 1

    The Astronomy Club is good, just short of great. Some sketches miss. Badly. But when they are on, it's hilarious! Solid show. Hoping they do a season two.

    Do you remember "In living color"? Did you love it? This show is everything like it. Just like "In living color" astronomy club is breathing fresh air into black comedy. But also being original and new at the same time. The cast is full of life and I love watching those guys act. I hope we can see more seasons of this.
