Dif­fi­cult Peo­ple Sea­son 1 Fri­days (from 9 De­cem­ber) M-Net Edge (*102) 19:00 & 19:30

Life sucks for 30-some­thing New York stand-up comics Julie and her gay bestie Billy (Julie Klaus­ner and Billy Eich­ner) in com­edy show Dif­fi­cult Peo­ple (2015- cur­rent). Their friends are all mak­ing money, are in com­mit­ted re­la­tion­ships and seem to be win­ning at life. But for these two, they’re tak­ing the easy road to be­come fa­mous and it’s just not work­ing out – their stand-up ca­reers are in tat­ters and they’re scrap­ing the bar­rel when it comes to mak­ing money, like…

In episode 5 (23 De­cem­ber), Billy tries to use his job work­ing as a waiter at the lo­cal cof­fee shop to his and Julie’s ad­van­tage. Billy’s laid­back boss and friend Nate (Der­rick Baskin) is go­ing out of town for a mini hol­i­day with his wife Denise (Gabourey Sidibe), leav­ing Billy in charge of the eatery and the rest of the staff. Spot­ting an op­por­tu­nity to make some fast money, Julie and Billy sneak­ily launch kid­dies’ meals… at prices that cus­tomers would pay for adult-sized meals. Look­ing for a one-night stand in episode 7 (30 De­cem­ber), Billy meets Fred the den­tist (John Ben­jamin Hickey) at the dog park, un­aware that Fred is part of a crime ring steal­ing money from peo­ple at the park. It’s al­most Christ­mas in episode 8 (30 De­cem­ber) and Billy’s ready to help his niece Tal (Dahlia White) with her to-do list, but his “help­ful­ness” comes at a price: he’s there for her if she gives his au­di­tion tape to su­per­pro­ducer Ryan Mur­phy, the cre­ator of Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story (2011-cur­rent). Thing is, Billy is ac­tu­ally meant to be at a gig with Julie that could help with both of their ca­reers… The 10-episode sec­ond sea­son was re­leased by video-on-de­mand ser­vice Hulu in the US between July and Septem­ber 2016 and the show was re­newed in Oc­to­ber for a 10episode third sea­son.

Billy and Julie will do any­thing to avoid hard work to be­come fa­mous.
