Comedy Bang Bang: “Judd Apatow Wears A Polo and Blue Suede Shoes” Review - AVClub

AVClub: Since the December announcement that Reggie Watts would be leaving Comedy Bang! Bang! for the monetarily greener pastures of James Corden’s Late Late Show (or The Latest Show, to those in the know), there’s been the lingering question of just how that particular surreal late night sketch talk show exit would go down. There was no doubt that it would be an event episode, partially because every episode is technically an event episode, but also because it was something that would send Comedy Bang! Bang! into uncharted territories. Scott and Reggie. Reggie and Scott. That’s the show. Now, that was the show. The send-off of Reggie Watts had to be epic, because epic is what Comedy Bang! Bang! does, and based on the story the show tells, Reggie is just as big a part of the show as Scott. He’s the sidekick, but he’s also legitimately Scott’s best friend within the show. While Comedy Bang! Bang! lampoons the idea of the host/sidekick relationship among other late night talk show conventions, there’s always been a sense of equal footing between the two, where Reggie isn’t just the yank-his-chain doll of a sidekick and band leader.

The story is too old to be commented.
