Critic Reviews for The Ben Stiller Show Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

The Ben Stiller Show was about as good as sketch comedy got.

While it can be pretty funny, The Ben Stiller Show is a mess, Stiller and his cohorts trying a little bit of everything to see if it'll work.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

The Ben Stiller Show wasn't just ahead of its time, it was a total anomaly.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

The star and co-creator of The Ben Stiller Show is a card, a caution and a hoot. When he's at the top of his form, he's brilliant. When he's not, he's still funnier than those people on that Saturday Night Comedy Show You're Sick of Reading About.

Stiller's got the look -- the Fox TV, youth look. Besides having the look, he also has some talent as a filmmaker, comedian and actor. He especially has a nice feel for video and youth culture.

More than its right-place-right-time situation at the center of the early-Nineties comedy universe, what makes Stiller's show stand out in retrospect is the depth of its aesthetics.

Sep 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Masters of comic juxtaposition, the show's writers cross-pollinated deviant strands of entertainment to create hybrids that were often both funny and genuinely satirical.

Top Critic

a sketch show lives and dies by its cast, and The Ben Stiller Show's small but potent troupe... should ensure a continuing cult devotion.

Sep 7, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Along with Stiller's considerable acting gifts, the premiere's staging and devastatingly clever writing form the underpinning for its success. Viewers should be so glad The Ben Stiller Show is having this conversation.

Sep 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Stiller rises above simple media parody. He gets at the heart of the whole phony, pathetic show-business ethos.
