Are you tired of repetitive exercises for learning English? Memorizing tons of vocabulary and various rules of grammar, studying English presents a unique and tedious challenge. If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed in the midst of it all, why not watch some hilarious comedy movies and videos to improve English?
Funny and clean comedy may have you rolling on the floor with side-splitting laughter. As the saying goes, time flies when you are having fun. There is no better way to practice your English than to spend a few hours laughing and learning at the same time. Not only will comedy help you pick up some new phrases and learn how to speak English more fluently, but it also provides a good opportunity to better understand the English-speaking world at large. Understanding English jokes shows you understand more than just the words, which means you get the culture as well. That is really a big deal!
What is your preferred type of comedy? For me, I love to watch stand-up comedy, which is exactly what it sounds like: a comedian stands up in front of the audience and tells jokes, speaking directly to the audience through a microphone to make them laugh. When it comes to stand-up comedy, people always talk about those funniest stand-up comedians of all time, such as George Carlin, Richard Pryor, and Robin Williams etc. Although some people think males are funnier than females, the women in the comedy scene are thriving. An Emmy-winning comedy series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,offers a great look at what it is like to be a woman stand-up comedian.
'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' tells the story of Miriam"Midge" Maisel, an energetic and sharp New York housewife who discovers she has a marvelous gift for stand-up comedy and pursues a career in it. Set in 1950s Manhattan, Mrs. Maisel's life was on track- the perfect husband, two kids, and an elegant Upper West Side apartment. She is a cheerleader wife to a man, but her perfect life takes an unexpected turn when her husband suddenly leaves her for another woman. Mrs. Maisel is left with no choice but to renew her life. As she accidentally discovers her previously unknown comedic talent, Mrs. Maisel decides to pursue a career in the male-dominated, stand-up comedy profession. This decision completely changes her life forever.
The comedy series has received critical Hollywood's approval and won the Golden Globe Award in 2017 and the Primetime Emmy Award in 2018. The show also has been given very good reviews from the audience. Many people are cheering and applauding for it. The audience leave a lot of positive comments on the trailer videos on Youtube. Let's take some examples as follows:
I NEVER watch new stuff that comes out but I watched all 8 eps in 2 days. It's like nothing I've seen.
Obsessed! Binged it in 2 days and now I wanna watch it again. Loved it. Best Amazon original yet!!
This show was actually awesome. I saw the first trailer while trying to watch something else and I didn't even want to skip the ad.
New seasons of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel were supposed to start production in late spring 2020, but were pushed because of the coronavirus pandemic. According to latest news, the show started filming its fourth season in New York City in Jan. 2021. Maisel star Brosnahan posted a photo from her first costume fitting in Instagram. Please see above.
The Show is Coming Back!!!
Will it be on your watch list of the most anticipated TV shows of 2021?
