Critic Reviews for The Comedians: Season 1

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (20)

Maybe if we all ask very nicely, Larry David will just come back with another season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. That's where my thoughts kept returning as I watched The Comedians.

Gad and Crystal have yet to convincingly mesh or clash the way The Comedians needs them to.

Through it all, enough basic Hollywood phoniness shines through to make this a reasonable facsimile of how the sausage is really made.

Gad and Long Beach native Crystal are a couple of pros who are congenial and sometimes even amusing together. As a team, they are better than the shows -- both the real one and the fake one -- they're in.

By giving it their all, the old pro and the young pro generally make The Comedians funnier and more engaging than the premise would suggest. That's showbiz!

Crystal and Gad have undeniably strong comic timing, but it's the material here that fails them.
