Well, I was a little confused about the hype surrounding the comeback of The Comeback (I was 11 years old when the first season of the HBO series aired), but after watching the first episode of season two I totally understand it.
The series stars Lisa Kudrow as Valerie Cherish, a former sitcom star shooting a reality show about her life that she plans on sending to Andy Cohen (who makes a cameo in the first episode). If you loved Lisa Kudrow in Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion, you will love her in The Comeback. She steals the spotlight and is equal parts delusional and hilarious. The show’s structure is similar to that of Curb Your Enthusiasm, except Valerie is aware of and interacts with the cameras. Valerie is also much less self-aware than Larry David, and certainly much more over-the-top.
Catch episode two of The Comeback tomorrow night at 10 PM on HBO.
