SUPER FUN NIGHT
Starring: Rebel Wilson, Liza Lapira, Lauren Ash, Kate Jenkinson, Kevin Bishop
Created by Rebel Wilson
Written by John Riggi, Directed by Alex Hardcastle
Super Fun Night is a new comedy vehicle for burgeoning star Rebel Wilson. In the show, Rebel Wilson plays Kimmie Boubier who gets her two friends Helen-Alice and Marika (Liza Lapira and Lauren Ash) to stop staying in on the weekends as they have for years and instead find something fun to do on Friday nights. Rounding out the main cast is Kimmie's co-workers Kendall (Kate Jenkinson) and Richard (Kevin Bishop), the boss' son.
BOTTOM LINE: This show was a surprise just in that I expected it to be at Dads or We Are Men levels and it was nowhere as bad as those shows. But there have been some pleasant comedy surprises this year and it is nowhere near those either. So it's a show in the low-middle right now. It could gel and become funny or the rails could come off. I could truly see either happening. Let's hope it heads towards a super fun level because right now it was just a "not horrible night."
