Hilariously outrageous new comedy series that offers a rude and cringe-inducing peek behind the pop world's curtain. Former boyband star turned drug-shamed tabloid laughing stock Maxxx may be down, but he's not out. He's trying to make a comeback to prove to the world -- but mostly to his supermodel ex-girlfriend Jourdan -- that he's not the massive loser everyone says he is. But with his adopted teenage son Amit in serious need of daddy advice, his cousin/superfan/stalker Rose popping up around every corner, and most people assuming he's dead, the journey back to superstardom won't be easy. In a last-ditch attempt at a comeback, Maxxx tries to rehash things with his old boyband Boytown and pleads for the help of music mogul Don Wild. With wannabe international manager Tamzin by his side, can Maxxx rise to the challenge?

Hilariously outrageous new comedy series that takes a rude and cringe-inducing peek behind the pop world's curtain. When some interest is finally shown in Maxxx's music, the pressure is on for him to come up with some new material. But Maxxx soon realises that he has existed for a long time in a state of lyrical barrenness. Already struggling with an untameable sex addiction and increasingly disturbing hallucinations, his creativity seems stuck between a rock and a hard place. Can he come up with the goods?

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

If we root for Maxxx at moments, it's not because Fagbenle has rounded any of the edges of his character.

While the humor lands inconsistently over the first few episodes -- at the very least, it requires a bit of acclimation time -- the undercurrent of societal critique in Maxxx never wavers. The trick is in whether you're looking for that part.

Maxxx serves as the TV equivalent of a summer beach read, as well as delightful proof of Fagbenle's wide range of talents - this is the show he wanted to make, and it's good silly fun.

Aug 24, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Maxxx isn't horrendously bad; I'm never mad seeing Christopher Meloni in a comedic role... but every beat of Maxxx's comeback story is so predictable that his eponymous series is worse than bad: it's boring.

Aug 12, 2020 | Full Review…

We didn't laugh once at the first episode.

Jul 29, 2020 | Full Review…

Maxxx is a breezily charming new entry into the canon of U.K. cringe comedy. Fagbenle augments the humor of pop star patter, while scenes that deal with racism and stereotyping in the industry are well-placed even if they are too easily moved past.

Jul 27, 2020 | Rating: 7.8/10 | Full Review…

O-T Fagbenle delivered a hilarious send-up of the bloated celebrity ego in Maxxx.

Apr 3, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Maxxx has the distinct air of a comedian making his name and there's nothing Fagbenle won't mine for laughs...
