Late Night: A Grown-up Comedy I Heartily Recommend

 In Comedy, Drama, Everything, Recommended, Woman Director, Woman Writer

The review:

Nisha Ganatra gives us a rare object in Late Night: the grown up comedy. Aside from a great cast* it’s also an interesting look at how those past-your-bedtime** comedy shows get created. It’s got some laugh-out-loud moments, and many chuckles and I found myself thoroughly charmed.

The verdict: Recommended

Cost: $6.00
Where watched: the Laurelhurst Theater

Consider also watching:

Further sentences:

*Emma Thompson of course, and Mindy Kaling. And all those writers in the writers room were fun to watch and I enjoyed seeing Paul Walter Hauser, who was so good as the not-so-smart buddy Shawn in I, Tonya
**It occurs to me that probably no one thinks of these shows this way any longer. I’m asleep by 10, but still see bits from late-night comedy shows because they are available on YouTube

Favorite IMDB trivia item:

A poster for director Nisha Ganatra’s first feature, Chutney Popcorn, can be seen on the wall of Molly’s room.
