The range of Stay-at-Home-Dad commentary and media is many things, but it’s not often laugh-out-loud-funny. This show is. Directed by Adam Jones, the series features Brandon Williams as a laid-off dad who crashes playgrounds, birthday parties, and playdates like a younger Larry David. He tries to buy painkillers off another mom in front of the slide, calls his crying baby a cockblocker, and asks a blonde mom at a birthday party if the carpet matches the drapes.
Over the top, sure, but it’s entertaining stuff for anyone who has ever felt estranged and vaguely emasculated by the pressure of socializing nicely all day in a world of moms. Williams’s character, on the other hand, is all Id in a very repressed world, finding ways to piss off a revolving cast of moms by talking about three-ways, retards, loose labia, and interracial sex (“it’s all pink on the inside, right?”) while watching his kid play on the swings.
Take a look, spread the word, and hopefully there will be a Season 3.
