TV: Meet The Richardsons, Dave

In interviews to promote this new series in which he stars as himself with his real-life wife Lucy Beuamont, comedian Jon Richardson has compared Meet The Richardsons to Seinfeld. “You see their lives and how it informs their stage act.” I’d beg to differ about the comparison. To me the series is closer to Curb Your Enthusiasm with, albeit, slightly less inappropriateness from the male star. Heck, Lucy Beaumont even looks a bit like Cheryl Hines, who plays Larry David’s ex-wife in the hit HBO show.
