News & Interviews for Middleditch & Schwartz: Season 1
"Middleditch & Schwartz" captures the spirit of improv across its three episodes, in watching two friends crack each other up, find a narrative together, and show off their shared knack for characters, voices, and comedy.
Most comedy specials arrive fully formed. "Middleditch & Schwartz" gives you the joy of working things out together.
Middleditch & Schwartz is a perfect storm of eccentric audience members, well-timed improv, and charm that instantly draws viewers in and makes them really feel like they're a part of something.
Each of these specials, a little less than one hour long, are full of some of the biggest, most consistent, and most frequent bouts of laughter I've had in a long time.
These are tiny nitpicks in what are otherwise excellent performances by two of the great improvisers of their generation.
I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. Middleditch & Schwartz are brilliant in this back & forth improv dance that will leave you wanting more. [Full review in Spanish]
There's joy to be found in watching these two-with their fantastic chemistry, surprisingly grounded performances and shared lunacy in storytelling-giddily escape the peril of on-stage failure.
If actors believe comedy is hard, then improv comedy is harder. Translating a live improv comedy show to a TV audience? That's double-diamond difficulty. And Middleditch and Schwartz are among comedy's moguls.
Schwartz and Middleditch share the type of effortless comedic chemistry that only develops after years of performances.
Two brilliant improv comedians doing what they do best, making the world laugh.
Audience Reviews for Middleditch & Schwartz: Season 1
4d agoAll these rave reviews only go to show how low our comedy standards have become. I got about halfway through the parking lot wedding sketch (don't tell me that the people who prompted that weren't a setup). It was just plain stupid. Real improv involves people re-inventing themselves into whole new characters. OK, I'm an old guy and I still remember Nichols and May. These are just two guys laughing and mugging at their own stale jokes. Waste of time.

Jul 17, 2020Evocative of old-school Who's Line is it Anyway but building up far more complex scenarios, Middleditch & Schwartz is sure to entice any lover of improv comedy with its stars' quick wits and solid timing.
