News & Interviews for Sherman's Showcase: Season 1
Sherman's Showcase is above all - and most importantly - just plain funny.
"Sherman's Showcase" is fearlessly ridiculous in its presumption of the audience's familiarity with these shows and others.
Sherman's Showcase has flickers of politics-of seeing getting down and making jokes as its own form of resistance-but they shimmer subtly, like sequins on a halter top. In multiple senses, the show never gets old.
"Sherman's Showcase," meanwhile, is a pure jolt of stylized nostalgia, from its affectionate sendups of soul, R&B and hip-hop to its candy-colored sets with their abstract cutouts, traversed by roller-skating dancers.
Even when the satire in "Sherman's Showcase" goes big and broad, the acting and the musical performances are so good, I found myself wishing there really WAS such a show.
The one-hour special of the critically acclaimed sketch series airs, perfectly, on Juneteenth. Guys, Sherman's Showcase is so good. Check it out.
From hilarious original songs and celebrity appearances (series producer John Legend narrates episode one, which also features a quick cameo by Tiffany Haddish), all keeping the funny intact. Do NOT sleep on the best variety series of the summer.
The more Showcase's reality ensnares you, the more depth the show takes on. It wants to make you laugh - and frequently does - but even more than that, it wants to sell the bit.
Sherman's Showcase isn't perfect, but it's crazy and fearless, which is perhaps better. Even if you're not a fan of the bombastic variety shows that are the subject of mockery here, this still might win you over due to its creative spin on the genre.
Audience Reviews for Sherman's Showcase: Season 1
Jan 13, 2020One of my favorite shows of 2019! Surreal and hilarious--like a mix of Eddie Kovacs, the Twilight Zone and Laugh-In. I'm crossing my fingers that there will be a season 2!
Oct 24, 2019Love it, super fresh.
Oct 10, 2019Hilarious! Takes me back to a time of soul train and solid gold!
Sep 12, 2019There's NOTHING LIKE THIS ON TV. The Original music is not only perfectly comedic, but the songs are CATCHY TOO! Sketch variety truly at its peak with this one!
Sep 07, 2019Do you like kale? Drink soy? Well then, grab a leaf, start dipping and settle in, you're going to love this.
Aug 25, 2019Literally For The Culture! Being on the less seasoned side of millennials (cough*) I feel like I know enough of the references but couldn't quite live through them. I'm a 1990 born chronic rerunner! But THIS gives me all the feels with enough current stuff to not lose me along the way! Sidenote: the diva cup last week TOOK ME OUT! Lol
Aug 06, 2019Is it Wednesday night yet?! I've watched the first two episodes 5 times. I wake up with Marina del Rey stuck in my head almost every day. And the days that I don't it's Time Loop or Drop It Low (For Jesus). This show is so clever and well written. Every time I watch it I discover a new joke. So many layers of jokes it's crazy. It's unlike anything else on TV and I love it. Rest In Power Human Crayon.
Aug 06, 2019This is genuinely my new favorite show on TV - the writing, music, choero, performances, set/costume design are all A+. There is nothing like this on TV right now! If out of the box, thoughtful humor is your jam, I promise you'll love SHERMAN'S SHOWCASE!
