Schwartzman on NBC?

05.28.2009

I have an inherent fondness for cheesy sitcoms. You know the kind they don't really make anymore with over-the-top laugh tracks, multiple cameras and cheesy premises (like a foreign raised man moving to Chicago to live with his long-lost American cousin). So naturally this video cracked me up.

Below is a clip from an upcoming NBC sitcom titled "Yo Teach!" starring Jason Schwartzman. Except it's not an actual NBC sitcom and that's not quite Jason Schwartzman. It's a brilliant piece of viral marketing for FUNNY PEOPLE, Judd Apatow's upcoming comedy. In the film, Schwartzman plays Mark Taylor Jackson, an actor who just landed a gig on a sitcom titled "Yo Teach," where he struggles to connect to a classroom of inner-city kids. It's a TV show within a movie and it's a spot-on parody of sitcoms like "Head of the Class." Check it out below...

NBC has been out of the laugh-track game for a few years now. It seems like something more up Fox's alley.

Yep, I would believe this is an NBC comedy. It sucked as bad as theirs does. Waste of 3:21

I know The Hangover is getting a lot of buzz, but I think I'm looking forward more to Funny People.
And though I may find Bo Burnham a bit annoying, there's no denying he's got some funny material.

They should have let Bo sing more because his lyrics are brilliant. Still can't believe he's only 18.
