Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Nikki & Sara Live is a late-night talk show that pushes the envelope when it comes to language (the strongest words are bleeped) and sexual commentary (including some references to sex acts and blurred nudity). The comedians occasionally discuss drinking and/or smoking unnamed substances. The show isn't meant for younger kids, but pop culture-oriented teens may be drawn to it.

What's the Story?
NIKKI & SARA LIVE is a comedy-oriented talk show starring stand-up comedians Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer as they offer their thoughts about the latest celebs and popular culture trends. From recaps of popular MTV shows like Catfish, to goofy pre-recorded skits and brief guest interviews, the two stir up some quirky late night fun.
Is It Any Good?
The lighthearted weekly series, which was born from their popular podcast You Had to Be There, creates some laughs thanks to the two hosts' polite, but sarcastic wit. But the show feels more awkward than edgy, thanks to their seemingly unsophisticated attempts at poking fun at people, places, and things.
Some of the jokes fall flat thanks to some odd timing, and the skits range from being funny to just plain silly. But these moments aren't too uncomfortable thanks to the hosts' ability to move things along. Nikki & Sara Live is certainly not for everyone, but folks who enjoy this sort of pop culture banter will find it worth watching.
