Sherman's Showcase is above all - and most importantly - just plain funny.

Aug 5, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Even when the satire in "Sherman's Showcase" goes big and broad, the acting and the musical performances are so good, I found myself wishing there really WAS such a show.

Aug 5, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The format is a bit of a hodgepodge, yet pretty consistently funny.

"Sherman's Showcase," meanwhile, is a pure jolt of stylized nostalgia, from its affectionate sendups of soul, R&B and hip-hop to its candy-colored sets with their abstract cutouts, traversed by roller-skating dancers.

Sherman's Showcase has flickers of politics-of seeing getting down and making jokes as its own form of resistance-but they shimmer subtly, like sequins on a halter top. In multiple senses, the show never gets old.

"Sherman's Showcase" is fearlessly ridiculous in its presumption of the audience's familiarity with these shows and others.

Aug 21, 2019 | Full Review…

I laughed out loud at that one - and the show had just started.

The more Showcase's reality ensnares you, the more depth the show takes on. It wants to make you laugh - and frequently does - but even more than that, it wants to sell the bit.

Aug 1, 2019 | Full Review…

In the early going, I'm most taken with Sherman's Showcase's willingness to try damn near anything.

Aug 1, 2019 | Full Review…

... when the show really digs in, it can generate big laughs.

Aug 2, 2019 | Full Review…

From hilarious original songs and celebrity appearances (series producer John Legend narrates episode one, which also features a quick cameo by Tiffany Haddish), all keeping the funny intact. Do NOT sleep on the best variety series of the summer.

Aug 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Sherman's Showcase isn't perfect, but it's crazy and fearless, which is perhaps better. Even if you're not a fan of the bombastic variety shows that are the subject of mockery here, this still might win you over due to its creative spin on the genre.

    There's NOTHING LIKE THIS ON TV. The Original music is not only perfectly comedic, but the songs are CATCHY TOO! Sketch variety truly at its peak with this one!

    Do you like kale? Drink soy? Well then, grab a leaf, start dipping and settle in, you're going to love this.

    Literally For The Culture! Being on the less seasoned side of millennials (cough*) I feel like I know enough of the references but couldn't quite live through them. I'm a 1990 born chronic rerunner! But THIS gives me all the feels with enough current stuff to not lose me along the way! Sidenote: the diva cup last week TOOK ME OUT! Lol

    Is it Wednesday night yet?! I've watched the first two episodes 5 times. I wake up with Marina del Rey stuck in my head almost every day. And the days that I don't it's Time Loop or Drop It Low (For Jesus). This show is so clever and well written. Every time I watch it I discover a new joke. So many layers of jokes it's crazy. It's unlike anything else on TV and I love it. Rest In Power Human Crayon.

    This is genuinely my new favorite show on TV - the writing, music, choero, performances, set/costume design are all A+. There is nothing like this on TV right now! If out of the box, thoughtful humor is your jam, I promise you'll love SHERMAN'S SHOWCASE!
