All you have to do is look back on the many years as CMA Awards Co-Host or his current Nationwide Insurance commercials with Peyton Manning to realize that Brad Paisley is a funny guy.
And now, he’s taking it to a level that thrills us to no end.
In the 1990s, MUST-SEE TV for us was “The Larry Sanders Show” on HBO. It was sort of a mockumentary/drama/comedy about a “Tonight Show”-type late night TV host played by the late, great, Garry Shandling.
I’m tell you, if you stream/binge this show on HBO’s app today, you will laugh your arse off. It is/was SMART funny.
Yesterday it was announced that Brad Paisley is set to star in a new comedy called “Fish Out of Water” on Amazon. It is described as a “Larry Sanders” type show. Brad is set to play the host of a fishing show.
If it’s even HALF as smart and funny as Shandling’s ground-breaking show was, we are MORE than all-in.
