Review of "Bring the Funny" 7/10/19 by Eva Diaz
airs Tuesdays, 10/9c on NBC

"Bring the Funny" is a comedy competition show that features stand-up and  sketch comedians.  They're all compeating to win $250,000. The show is hosted by comedian Amanda Seales ("Insecure") and judged by Kenan Thompson ("Saturday Night Live"), Chrissy Teigen ("Entertainment Tonight") and Jeff Foxworthy ("The Jeff Foxworthy Show" and "Are you Smarter Than a Fifth Grader").

I love to watch funny comedies and stand-up comedians, so I was looking forward to watching this show. I enjoyed watching the chemistry between the judges and host Seales.  They really seem to have fun watching the contestants perform, and they also joke with each other, which make this a fun show to watch. I think you will enjoy it, too.  However, at times the humor can be a bit risqué, so it might be wise to watch it without the kids (or watch it before they do and judge for yourself).

The contestants are really funny, and I often wonder to myself, "How will the judges be able to pick just six contestants to move on to the next round?" It must be really hard for them to decide. The judges also tell the contestants the things about their act that they enjoyed the most, as well as the things they need to improve if they advance to the next round. You will enjoy this show if you enjoy talented comedians, and stand-up as well as sketch comedy. Over the course of the show, I believe that the audience will really root for their favorite contestant to win. I give this show 5 out of 5 stars.
