Co­me­dian Nish Ku­mar picks his dream view­ing…

Inside Soap - - INSIDE TV -

My favourite show at the mo­ment is The Good Place

on Net­flix. I’m hooked on that – it’s in­cred­i­bly funny and has real am­bi­tion and orig­i­nal­ity, but also em­braces big philo­soph­i­cal ideas. That show has it all! And it’s got Ted Dan­son kick­ing a dog into the sun, I don’t know what more peo­ple want.

I very much en­joyed Big Lit­tle Lies.

I didn’t know what to ex­pect be­cause I hadn’t read the novel, but it was fan­tas­tic.

The cast is in­sane – when it’s like, “Oh, and Laura Dern is in it”, you know that it’s an un­real show as she’s amaz­ing.

There’s a glut of good come­dies at the

mo­ment – Don­ald Glover’s show At­lanta is very dis­tinc­tive, and Game­face was fan­tas­tic. It’s great to see some­one trans­lat­ing their comedic per­sona in such an in­ter­est­ing way – it’s con­sis­tent with Roisin Conaty’s stand-up stuff.

I con­sume Mod­ern Fam­ily like ice

cream. I very specif­i­cally watch it be­cause it just makes me feel bet­ter about things. At the op­po­site end of that spec­trum is Larry David and Curb

Your En­thu­si­asm – dis­com­fort is his cur­rency, but I love him so much!

There’s a part of me that would love

to be in The West Wing, be­cause I would love to be that clever and that good-look­ing. Even though they work in pol­i­tics, ev­ery­one in The West Wing can rat­tle off one-lin­ers and sta­tis­tics – I’d love to have that sort of fac­ulty!
