Billy Crystal (Soap, Saturday Night Live) and Josh Gad (Back to You, 1600 Penn) both have experience starring in televisions shows. Some have been successful while others have not. Will The Comedians be a hit in the ratings for FX? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? We’ll have to wait and see.
A mockumentary comedy series, The Comedians stars Crystal as a comedy legend who’s reluctantly paired with edgy up-and-coming star Gad for a late night sketch comedy show. Egos and generations soon collide on The Billy & Josh Show — much to the dismay of the show’s crew. The rest of the cast includes Stephnie Weir, Matt Oberg, Megan Ferguson, and Dana Delany.
