Comedy Chaos 2024 / A modest comedy series that's light on laughs but built on sturdy foundations


As is oddly common for TV shows revolving around stand-up comedy, the actual jokes in Comedy Chaos are mostly duds—or in this case, may have been greatly lost in translation from the original Indonesian. But while the show’s humor is only ever mildly amusing at best, it opens with a pretty compelling set-up: a protagonist fired for speaking up for labor rights, a marriage that has its miscommunications but remains firm, and characters who are all constantly plagued by money problems. So there’s a relatability to Comedy Chaos that keeps it intact, and it’s refreshing to see this series resist the usual cliched conflicts you’d expect to see early on.
