FOX’s new entry into Saturday-night sketch comedy, the half-hour Party Over Here, debuts this weekend, and the first video teases let you know it’s a very theatrical effort.
Nicole Byer, Jessica McKenna and Alison Rich come from theater backgrounds at UCB and elsewhere, and their TV sketches often play out much like you’d imagine seeing a sketch show in a theater, instead of how you’re used to seeing them on TV. Except it’s happening. On a small stage. Sometimes with the live audience participating.
Producers Paul Scheer and The Lonely Island also explain (without mansplaining) their intentions.
Party Over Here premieres at 11 p.m. ET/PT Saturday, March 12, 2016, on FOX.
