Cruelly funny and crushingly uncomfortable
Whereas “Girls” is restless and wandering, “Little Horribles” is a tighter, more focused entertainment.
In Search of the Next Broad City: Five Comedy Web Series That Could Make It To TV
A brilliant new web series…the show’s unique tone has garnered the attention of the likes of Sarah Silverman
What it’s Like to Be the Only Female Comedian in the Room: Amy York Rubin on identity expectations, striking out on her own, and the gender politics of comedy.
An awkward, addictive web series with a Louis CK or “Curb Your Own Enthusiasm” vibe. The series of video vignettes is a low-fi gem.
This Web Series Is the Ultimate Combination: Louie Meets Girls
Sharp, funny and painfully awkward, Little Horribles’ Amy York Rubin is just the lovable underdog you’ve been missing.
This show is painfully awkward, in the best way possible… if you have ever sobbed in public, been caught masturbating, or simply love dark comedies, you have found your new favorite series.
We’re looking forward to more cringeworthy sex scenes and unpolished tirades as Little Horribles tackles the minutiae of daily life with brutal honesty and hilarity— sometimes it’s hard to tell which is which.
Simply fucking fantastic… Artfully crafted. I know that sounds pretentious but it’s true, so get over it.
What the world needs is more stories by ladies for ladies (and everyone else!) and as a fan of uncomfortable as hell comedy, I have a feeling this could get really good.
[This] kind of small, intimate humor is au courant these days on television.
…irreverent, funny and honest.
…a darkly comedic show .
There truly has not been a bad, or even average episode of her crazy good web series.
…though the first episode premiered a few days ago, we’re already fans.
…achieves high production value, quality dialogue, and great acting without the backing of a network like HBO or a producer like Judd Apatow.
…basically an online video-making awareness-bringing-LOL machine.
…more than just a lesbian “Girls.”
My new fave web series, LITTLE HORRIBLES
Whoa, peep this ep of @LittleHorribles w/ @Ayrubin @anndcarr @issarae endorsed by @SarahKSilverman
@LittleHorribles is brilliant. Honest. Funny. Lots of UCBers. Watch it!
Little Horribles promises needle-sharp observations of life’s humiliations and unavoidable disappointments.
Yet, even with all the star power supporting the show, it is the character of Amy–awkward, honest and relatable–that has viewers hooked. We can’t help but be enthralled by the mess Amy creates as she navigates the gray areas of identity and relationships.
The series may focus on misadventures in lesbian love, but it’s the spot on observations of life’s humiliations, and unavoidable disappointments, that everyone can relate to that truly makes this series great.
I definitely LOL’d when I watched that episode.
…an introspective, sharp lesbian web series with a too-honest protagonist.
…as disgusting as it is funny.
…a great new web series.
Little Horribles, like Broad City and Awkward Black Girl before it, are producing content from perspectives that aren’t represented even in a groundbreaking show like Girls.
Creator Amy York Rubin masterfully articulates those little nuggets of emotion that make us feel uncomfortable in an awkward situation.
…a real gem.
…an unflinchingly honest and uncomfortably funny depiction of two girls breaking up.
…proves people love awkward lesbians.
Critic’s Picks: 2013’s Best Comedy Web Series: Little Horribles: For sensitive, unabashed awkwardness.
The Misadventures of a self-obsessed lesbian. Think a slightly more grown-up West Coast version of Hannah Horvath.
