“Repeat after me: Girls are not funny. And they never will be funny. Or President.”
That’s the sound of Iliza Shlesinger getting her own sketch show on Netflix, and a new trailer gives us a first look at what promises to be the “sketchiest sketch show ever”.
Executive produced and starring comedian Iliza Shlesinger, the comic leads her ensemble cast in a hilarious, satire-filled series packed with outrageous characters.
The series celebrates and skewers the TV stereotypes that fill our screens big and small, from bizarre exercise plans to over-simplified DIY shows and “reality” TV at its best/worst.
Shlesinger serves as an executive producer alongside Kim Gamble, Kara Baker, David Martin, Richard Allen-Turner, and Jon Thoday. It is directed by Laura Murphy (Girl Code; Adam Ruins Everything) and comprises six episodes – and judging by this 80-second teaser, it’s going to be a hoot.
The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show premieres on 1st April on Netflix worldwide. Here’s the trailer:
