What's the story?

PARTY OVER HERE is a sketch-comedy series starring comedians Nicole Byer, Jessica McKenna, and Alison Rich. The trio, who are veterans of the Los Angeles-based comedy group Upright Citizens Brigade, perform in skits about things ranging from falling in love with a yogurt to a suffragette who can't be bothered to vote. In between the comedy shorts, the comedians banter with the studio audience. Adding to the lineup are occasional appearances by the Lonely Island comedy troupe and The Hotwives' Paul Scheer.

Is it any good?

This lukewarm series offers a combination of sketches and on-stage gags designed to elicit laughs. But much of the humor falls flat as the jokes go too long, are too obvious, or are just plain silly.

The female trio is likable, even if they don't seem to have a lot of chemistry when they're together. Nonetheless, despite the energy brought in by other comedians, this just isn't enough to make the overall show very funny.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about sketch comedy. What makes it different from stand-up, improv, or other kinds of comedic performances? Does the way you perform sketch comedy change if it's performed for a TV audience? 

  • Who determines what is funny (and what isn't)? Can humor ever go too far?
