Bring the Funny Review

A good television competition/reality show has to be compelling, entertaining and above all, has to create the want in the audience to continue to watch and root for the contestants.

Last night, Bring the Funny premiered on NBC. Hosted by Amanda Seales, a variety of comedy acts present themselves to the audience and judges Kenan Thompson, Chrissy Teigen and Jeff Foxworthy. At the end of the episode, six of the acts are chosen to move forward and one will eventually win the competition.

Bring the Funny is genuinely funny and entertaining. Unlike other competition reality shows, this show feels unique, interesting and a real shot for the contestants.

I recommend it.

Bring the Funny airs on Tuesday nights on NBC at 10PM.

Flashback Friday-The Rise Of The Child Stars- Kids Incorporated (1984-1993) & All That (1994-2005)

To be in the movies or on television at a young age is either a blessing or curse.Β  For every Drew Barrymore who is able to succeed in the industry as an adult, there is a Dana Plato whose career and life we can only speak of in past tense.

Between them, Disney and Nickelodeon has produced multiple generations of child stars.

Kids Incorporated was part of the Disney lineup from 1984-1993. Combining musical performances and short skits, the show is a whose who of child stars whose careers have successfully stretched into adulthood. Fergie, Mario Lopez, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Eric Balfour are four of the actors who got their feet wet during their time on Kids Incorporated.

For a kid in the 1980’s and 1990’s, this show was magic. I have very fond memories of watching this program during my younger days.

All That (1994-2005) was Nickelodeon’s answer to Saturday Night Live. Ironically, Kenan Thompson was part of the original All That cast and is presently a cast member of Saturday Night Live.

This show was just plain fun. To the preteen and early teenage audience, this was entertainment at it’s best.

I recommend both.
