Difficult People is a new Hulu original series. Hulu is trying to pretend they are real television network by releasing just one episode a week.

The show is produced by Amy Poehler (who is basically the greatest ever, I mean have you seen Parks & Rec?). Difficult People is written by and stars Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner (you might also know him from Parks & Rec).

It is semi-autobiographical and focuses on two struggling comedians, Julie Kessler and Billy Epstein (really creative names right?). They are sarcastic and snarky and at one point, Julie’s boyfriend reminds the two of them to be nice to “non-each other people.”

I really related to several of the things Julie said like, “I’m so funny when I write mean things about TV shows.” And also, live tweeting stuff in your pajamas? That sounds like my kind of night.

I weirdly enjoyed this show, it is funny but not laugh out loud funny to be sure. Basically the entire show is Julie and Billy making fun of everyone, from Blue Ivy to a date because he’s a “participator.” It’s a very sarcastic, filled with lots of great one liners. Also, they have lots of famous guest stars like Fred Armisen, who plays  Billy’s dry cleaner brother.

This show is weird and snarky and I kind of like it. Julie and Billy go on several adventures like having a roast of PBS employees and attending the show of a recovering alcoholic magician.

While they make fun of everyone else because of their stupidity, Julie and Billy are really the difficult people of Difficult People.

PS – this show is rated MA and for very good reason. While hilarious many of their jokes are highly inappropriate and filled with foul language.
