TV Comedy: Santa Clara Diet mixes Zombies & Comedy & Relationships

Netflix‘ new quirky Santa Clarita Diet is many things tossed into pot: Zombie gore, stylized-comedy-sitcom-banter and how to make a marriage work.

The show follows realtor couple Sheila, played by Drew Barrymore, and Joel, played by Timothy Olyphant, living with a daughter in a California suburbia –

Long-story-short wife dies and wakes up a Zombie with a need for human flesh…’all the while figuring things out romantically with the hubby.

It’s really hard to mix genres and make it work. I personally like my Sci-Fi to be taken seriously and heavy on the Science. And my horror to be scary and light on laughs.

But what works here is the amazing casting, making this a fun world to visit.  ‘Barrymore is probably the most sympathetic zombie ever…and I love watching the complexities of any long term relationship.

This NY Times review sums it up best saying the show is “zombification as the route to midlife rejuvenation.”

Santa Clarita Diet is streaming all of season 1 on Netflix now.

Comedian Ricky Gervais talks doing comedy with a President Trump

Comedian Ricky Gervais is gearing up for his first standup tour in 7 years (and also just dropped a NEW David Brent film sequel to the British TV version of  ‘the Office’ on Netflix)

In a recent interview with Reuters he chatted how a President Donald Trump has made him a better Comic:

I use irony, saying the wrong things so that hopefully people will understand the right things,” Gervais told Reuters. “But now it’s too dangerous. I get the wrong round of applause! I have to be so careful about what I say.”

He’s finally found his voice as a stand-up comic — in the world of Donald Trump as president: “Trump has made me a better standup because everything is much more poignant now,” said Gervais.

Anything you do about truth, stupidity, anger, humanity, world issues — it’s so much in the forefront of people’s minds about what’s happened.”

Instead, he riffs on “opinions versus facts, social media where people would rather win than be right, and how sneakily freedoms are crushed.

My shtick has always been me saying the wrong things,” he said. “My standup has always been a brasher, more arrogant, less informed bigoted, bore than myself.”

Check out the Video Trailer of his release of David Brent: Life on the Road, a film sequel to the British version of The Office.

Video: Comedian Bill Burr has a NEW baby & a NEW Netflix Special

funnyman Bill Burr is a new dad & starring in two Netflix shows including his NEW Stand Up Comedy special “Walk Your Way Out” – which starts streaming on Jan 31st

known for not being too politically correct & a no-holds-bar approach to laughs — Burr reflected reflected recently on being a new dad & more in a recent Boston Magazine interview:

“Anything you can do that will make your wife happy is a great thing, and that’s about the greatest thing you can do. I was worried that I was too old to do it, so the fact that the plumbing still worked was a relief. I was hoping I wasn’t going to have to do the whole Westworld thing where I was going to have to go into a lab and they were going to have to milk some sort of life out of me. I was very excited. Believe it or not, I always wanted to be a dad.”
