Alternatino with Arturo Castro: Season One
August 6, 2019 8:35 AM - Season 1 (Full Season) - Subscribe

I saw the first episode of this on Comedy Central's YouTube channel, and it was really funny. Castro was great on Broad City, so I'm really happy to see him get his own show.

I also watched the first episode randomly and thought it was GREAT. I'm not aware of his history, but this has a really fresh approach and now I have to remember to watch the rest. I hope it's on On Demand or other $CABLECO feature.

Between this and Black Women's Sketch Show (not to mention Key & Peele), it may be possible that SNL has made white sketch comedy played out. It just sucks all the air out of any other approaches (MadTV was always always just an also-ran). Interesting future we're heading into.

I've been enjoying the series, but the last episode was not the best, starting with a urination sketch and the long form one about buying a gift were both mediocre.

OTOH the cultural assimilation one was not bad.

This is some funny stuff. I really like this show and I'm eager for another season. If this is your kind of thing, you might also like Sherman's Showcase on IFC and A Black Lady Sketch Show on HBO

I randomly saw the brutalist-shit architect fauxcumentary skit on Twitter, and I loved it.
