Tv Season Info
Cast & Crew
Party Down's appeal lies in its acute understanding of actors as insecure extroverts, writers as bashful narcissists, and unfulfilled artists of all types as quick-draw cynics.
The world of Party Down - and the bizarre smaller worlds the waiters travel to each week - is so entertainingly silly that the show deserves a chance to try going on without its leading man.
Party Down took awhile to jell, but it has hit its stride as one of TV's most finely observed comedies.
This comedy not only features great jokes and dynamic dialogue but also rolls out provocative stories week after week, thanks to the depth of the show's central premise.
The writing, which simulates the illusion of off-the-cuff improv while being, by all accounts, tightly scripted, has been matched flawlessly to the individual comic talents of what is an exceptional cast.
Party Down is a hilarious tribute to the broken-down yet ever-striving characters that sit on the Hollywood sidelines.
The rest of the original crew is back, in varying degrees of denial, cluelessness, incompetence and narcissism. They have been missed.
The comedy never quite lifts into giddiness, but there are lots of solid, unexpected laughs. And isn't that cause for celebration?
Party Down's strength lies within its wide range of characters. They each represent a different subset of the Hollywood dream, but they also each manage to go behind their face-value archetypes and form an utterly impressive whole.
Audience Reviews for Party Down: Season 2
Jun 25, 2020Can't believe I didn't know about this show until June, 2020! Fun watching all these characters we know from other shows mesh (or not mesh) into this hilarious band of misfits. Loved season 1, just started season 2, disappointed that it only lasted that long (but understandable, given the particulars).
Jan 27, 2016From seeing him in The State, Wet Hot American Summer, Role Models, Eastbound and Down, Children's Hospital and Party Down, I can easily say that Ken Marino is one of my favorite comedic actors. This short series is a showcase for his talents....A gem of show!
