Critic Reviews for White Famous: Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (15)

White Famous is a middling, masculine comedy, probably worth a second look but maybe not a third.

It looks like a show that could mature into something more than it is now, with Pharoah as a sturdy building block.

The self-loathing here is the type that's common to so many Hollywood satires, filled with the requisite pythons and soul crushers who keep the sausage factory conveyor belt moving. But much of this goes beyond loathing to self-lacerating.

Like its star, White Famous has a lot of potential, but it has to stop going for shocking easy laughs and focus on the smart human story at its core.

It's [Jay] Pharoah, though, best known for his six-season stint on SNL, who carries the action. He's droll enough, making his eyes dance at others' foolishness, but he also has an unexpected sadness about him that adds dimension to the show.

It's hard to determine what the real hook of the show is, and there's no clear string of LOLs happening, but it does cement Pharoah's status as a star.
