Review of "Bring
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
