Critic Reviews for Joe Pera Talks With You Season 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

In a medium where we demand the high-volume joke-per-minute, there is something so transformative about the way Pera invites our own softness.

Sep 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Incrementally, Pera reveals himself to be a fragile yet towering philosopher of the everyday.

May 8, 2020 | Full Review…

[Joe Pera Talks With You] is more formally interesting and sophisticated than a thumbnail description might suggest.

May 21, 2018 | Full Review…

The whole thing is artful, even heartfelt. And, despite what Joe's sloping gait, slow, toneless voice and childlike sincerity may suggest, Adult Swim's funniest show in ages.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

There are so many small, wonderful laugh-out-loud moments that make this series, and the comedy of Joe Pera in general, an absolute joy to watch.

Audience Reviews for Joe Pera Talks With You: Season 1

  • Oct 23, 2020
    The best TV show ever. Please watch it.
  • May 28, 2020
    Joe Pera Talks with You is an honest and successful attempt at approaching comedy in a non-mainstream way. Joe Pera's wholesome choir teacher character is nervous and awkward without being distracting and taking away from the overall calming and positive feel of the show. The writing is witty and surprising, and together with the aesthetically pleasing cinematography, beautifully tone-appropriate soundtrack and impressive performances by Jo Firestone and Joe Pera (among others) it results in a very pleasant watch. Joe Pera Talks with You is as relaxing as it is funny. The show has its own style that doesn't conform to the popular in-your-face-offensive interpretation of comedy. It does in own thing and it does it very well.

    Joe Pera is the comedian we all need in our lives.
  • Jan 19, 2020
    Easily the most underrated show on television, Joe Pera Talks With You is a meditative comedy about an exceptionally kind, quiet choir teacher enjoying every small thing in life that piques his interest, exploring his own personal thoughts on life and events, and occasionally facing problems in his small Michigan town. At 11 minutes per episode (besides a 22 minute finale) its calm pace never overstays its welcome, and its sharp wit occasionally explodes from its warm, relaxing shell. From its uniformly great performances, especially the powerhouse driven by its lead actor/creator/writer, to its gorgeous views of the UP, to its undeniably wholesome and optimistic outlook that for once doesn't seem to be entirely a parody, Joe Pera Talks with You is the most unique show on Adult Swim yet, and for me the best comedy to rear its head in recent memory.

    Its Bob Ross meets Mr. Roger's. Joe Pera feels like a friend I've never met.

    I'm not a doctor nor psychologist but I can give you a "Civilian Pledge" that this show will help alleviate symptoms of anxiety disorder, panic disorder, possibly help with mild-to-moderate depression, and, since most dis-ease of the body stems from inflammation, which is caused by resistance, I'd be willing to bet that viewing this show in a focused and engaged way could bring about healing of the body due to the nature of it, its values presented, and the simple truths it posits. Similar to the mission of the Stardew Valley developer who wanted to remind people of the simple, sustainable "real-ness" of living off the land, I'd assume Joe Pera and crew are hoping that this show incites a similar sense of "simple, sustainable personal wellbeing" in its viewers. In my case, it absolutely has and this show has made me laugh out loud and cry quite silently, in the most healing and therapeutic of ways. Reviewers who call it boring and unfunny aren't keen to what this show is trying to do. It teaches frazzled, nervous-breakdown-prone modern people how to re-approach life in ways that are so slow and simple, it's entertaining—and definitely funny. If you're not laughing or invested in the show, you're probably not the right patient for this subtle therapy.

    Heartwarming, gentle, and quietly, carefully absurd. The word "quirky" should be kept as far away from this show as possible...Joe Pera Talks With You is something much more unique than the average late night comedy: cozy.
  • Oct 14, 2018
    Although I might be pretty biased on this show, the amount of new warmness and genius this show brings to the table is something to be praised. Not only is this show overlooked, I feel even if it wasn't overlooked, its pure genius in dishing out even things like the minimalist lore would probably be missed due to the shows humble nature. I truly think this starting season for the show is actually beautiful.
