Sherman's Showcase is above all - and most importantly - just plain funny.

I laughed out loud at that one - and the show had just started.

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.

... when the show really digs in, it can generate big laughs.

In the early going, I'm most taken with Sherman's Showcase's willingness to try damn near anything.

"Sherman's Showcase" is fearlessly ridiculous in its presumption of the audience's familiarity with these shows and others.

Aug 21, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

The format is a bit of a hodgepodge, yet pretty consistently funny.

Aug 5, 2019 | Full Review…

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.

    Is 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.

    This 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!
