Ah, the classic story of the budding writer who finds themselves trapped in an alternate sitcom multiverse. Tale as old as time. What do you get when you mix an homage to Noises Off, Pleasantville, and classic episodes of Friends, Seinfeld, Will & Grace and The Golden Girls? You get MAKE ‘EM LAUGH! by Emmy nominee Jason Odell Williams. This fresh comedy explores what it means to find one's passion (all while figuring out how to escape being stuck inside the TV). Time to brush up on your late-night sitcoms, people.
