The Comedy Bureau Field Report Ep. 80: Alissa Nutting & Alyson Levy & Following Illogic
Now might be the perfect time an animated dark comedy that follows a reanimated/undead mother trying to redeem herself with her family that just happens to run a funeral home in Florida. Thus, Teenage Euthanasia has just arrived from the beautifully funny minds of Alissa Nutting and Alyson Levy, who just happen to be this week’s guests on TCB Field Report. They both take us through the long journey to getting one of the most unexpectedly joyful and redemptive new shows on TV and how it changed from its inception in 2016 to starting a writers room in April 2020 and going on air while the pandemic isn’t over. Also, “hot” takes on new HBO Max comedy from Chris Kelly/Sarah Schneider, Silver Linings Playbook becoming a musical, and more.
Oh yes, we do talk about ‘crotch beatles’ and its Florida origins.
