Cast & Crew
Brought to life by local Chicagoans, both in front of and behind the camera, "South Side" succeeds in what it sets out to do: give viewers a more complete, if humorous depiction of life on Chicago's south side.
Series co-creator Salahuddin is a hugely appealing performer, and his scripts are well packed with funny gags and interesting observations about black life and culture. A real gem.
The fact that it is a straightforward, frenetically-paced laugh machine makes it stand out among the more severe portrayals of the city that we see on [other] shows.
"South Side" does something rare for TV, portraying a poor neighborhood with dry-eyed wit, favoring specificity over polemics or cliché.
Rather than turn a blind eye to poverty and violence, "South Side" follows the tradition of history's great humorists to find laughter amid the chaos.
South side is my favorite comedy show of 2019. Does well depicting the south side of Chicago while providing social commentary and a great deal of laughs.
South Side barrages you with so many jokes, and in so short a time, that after a few minutes of watching, you'll feel drunk.
With South Side, though, they quirkiness of The Office or Parks & Recreation is layered in there, making the humor of this series much smarter and more leftfield (at times) within that space.

Nov 17, 2019i think show is super funny and nicely connected to todays pop culture. Also wish there was more than 10 episodes should be around 20
Nov 03, 2019I like slapstick black comedies. This fits the bill. Not as funny or well done as say Atlanta, but it's a budget show on a comedy network.
Sep 28, 2019It's rare that a sitcom surprises you with it's punchlines and actually makes you laugh out loud these days. South Side definitely does that. One of my favorites right now!
