My overall impression

If there was a show where puppies were tickling kittens and your favorite sex partner was tickling a massage onto you and you were on ecstasy and by going to the show you automatically won the power ball lottery, that show would still PALE in comparison to the good feelings you get after watching ME RICH, YOU LEARN. Adam Carpenter and Zach Steel have a rare kind of comedic genius. Their comedy DNA seems to come from a blood smoothie of all the greats. Steve Martin is in their smoothie. Odenkirk and Cross are in it. Even Fred Armisen is in there. If you ever watch Portlandia or Tim & Eric and feel like it’s not as inspired as it once was, ME RICH YOU LEARN feels like the next evolution. It’s an intelligent, cohesive story, with an arc for both characters, but there is no limit to the insanity that can happen. You will leave this show quoting it to your friends. You will take lines from this show and say them to your dad and pretend like you came up with it. You will leave this show and literally call your dad and recite it and when he asks where you heard that you will say “I just came up with it” because everyone wants their dad to think they are a genius. Go see this show. You won’t be sorry.
