Bring the Funny

 

NYCTastemakers’
TV Show of the Month

Have you watched television lately?

Scandals, Violence, Political Finger Pointing.  Our country is divided. There’s no lack of drama and a monumental void of levity.
I’ve found an outlet, a way to distract myself from the “noise” that surrounds us on a daily basis.  Every Tuesday I tune into “Bring The Funny” on NBC at 10 pm.
“Bring The Funny” is NBC’s newest show hosted by Chrissy Teigen, Amanda Seales, Jeff Foxworthy, and the incredibly funny, Kenan Thompson.
The show provides a platform for up and coming comedians and provides them with an opportunity to display their talents in front of some seasoned veterans in the comedic landscape.  The talented panel provides each comedian with constructive feedback and gives you a glimpse into the business of being funny.
Why is this show so important?  For starters, It’s a comedy!  It’s a way to hear material from comedians from all backgrounds.  It also gives some insight into the comedian’s journey in life.  Some have experienced hardship and loss- but despite their obstacles, they stand up on that stage every Tuesday night, making us all laugh!
When was the last time a complete stranger made you laugh?  I’m sure, you can’t remember.  If you can, sign them up for “Bring the Funny”, if you can’t, tune in to NBC on Tuesday Nights at 10 pm.
