30 minutes

Eight up-and-coming comedians present their wildest sketch and improv routinesOne show. Eight comedians. Multiple personalities. In Netflix Presents: The Characters, the next generation of comedians get a chance that only Netflix could offer: the opportunity to create their own 30-minute episodes and do whatever they want. No rules. No limits. Each comedian writes and appears in his/her episode, presenting a series of sketches that veer wildly from Bachelor parodies, to music videos, to biblical spoofs... all in the name of outlaw comedy. The Characters features: Lauren Lapkus (Orange Is The New Black, Jurassic World), Kate Berlant (The Meltdown), Dr. Brown (Dr. Brown), Paul W. Downs (Broad City), John Early (Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp), Tim Robinson (SNL), Natasha Rothwell (Writer, SNL) and Henry Zebrowski (Heroes Reborn). The series also features cameos from SNL's Cecily Strong and Bobby Moynihan, Tyson Beckford, and Broad City's Abbi Jacobson.

Natasha Rothwell's episode is amazing and hilarious. I watched it 3 times. Henry Zebrowski's episode is unfunny, offensive, and disgusting. All the others range from "pretty good" to "okay" depending on your taste.
