Netflix is getting funnier



Netflix continues to deliver the goods with exclusive shows from Marvel’s Daredevil, Orange is the New Black, and more but the VOD service is delivering the comedic thunder with new series and a season renewal.

Stand up star Maria Bamford has always been public about her struggles with mental health in her albums and specials, but her new scripted series coming to Netflix called ‘Lady Dynmite’ goes into greater gritty detail of the her problems. It looks like the dysfunctional become delightful with the Bammer in this trailer for the first season which uploads on May 20th.

A ridiculous comedy about a kid’s camp is going to be funny for another year. Netlfix confirmed today the continuation of the ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ series in 2017. The original film’ came and went in theaters in 2001 but grew to become a cult sensation directed by David Wain and written by Michael Showalter, both cast members of MTV’s ‘The State’. The teen movie spoof about oddball summer camp helped launch the careers of Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, and other noteworthy actors. It was revived as a prequel mini-series for Netflix last year, called ‘Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp’. That short run season had a lot of original cast members including Janeane Garofalo, Michael Ian Black, and Molly Shannon coming back to reprise their roles from the film. Another silly season is on the way. ‘Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later’ which plays directly off a joke from the original movie.

If that is not enough, the Net of Flix has also recently put up some must-see stand up specials from Patton Oswalt, Jimmy Carr, Theo Von, and Chicago’s own Hannibal Burress. So if your neighbors hear you laughing loudly and ask you to keep it down, just tell them to catch up on these shows, they will get it. 

While we’re talking comedy, Keanu the new action farce from Key & Peel hits theaters this weekend and it has a hidden guest star. Read more here…
