Our favourite Aussie comedian, Rebel Wilson, is bringing her comedy to ABC in a new show called Super Fun Night. The Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect starlet is going to call ABC’s Wednesday night comedy block home next fall when Super Fun Night debuts. The show will air at 930p in the coveted after Modern Family slot. I couldn’t be more happy for Rebel Wilson.
I was wary of any other network besides CBS picking up Rebel’s show. CBS is known for comedy that seems a little risqué for television(see 2 Broke Girls). ABC isn’t known for having long-last “vulgar” shows. The wonderful show GCB was cancelled due to its subject matter.Rebel Wilson is known for her vulgarity and outrageous comedy that sometimes goes on the side of extreme. I am hoping that ABC won’t tame our little kangaroo too much because her comedy is what makes her shine. I do feel better that the show was created by Conan O’Brien and Rebel herself. It is also being executive produced by the both of them as well.
The trailer for the show almost makes it seem like ABC and Rebel have found a way to bridge Rebel’s humour while keeping it some what on a smaller scale. I think it was also smart to put the show later in the night when the tots are on their way to the land of dreams. The trailer also has a different look about it than the current comedies. It almost looks like it was filmed like a movie.
While I really couldn’t be happier for Rebel, I really am hoping this show means that she will be taking a hiatus from movies. We do know that she is helping write the planned and green-lit Pitch Perfect 2, which is due out in 2014. I hope we don’t have to wait until then for another Rebel filled movie. She has just become one of my favourite actresses and comedienne’s that I want more of her than I probably need.
