After a near decade-long hiatus audiences were thrilled to welcome back “Valerie Cherish,” one of this or any season’s most singularly fascinating television characters, and the centerpiece of HBO’s acclaimed The Comeback. Following its initial season the series was discovered and rediscovered by a passionate and ever-growing fan base. Beloved for its prescient, pre–Real Housewives take on celebrity and reality TV, and for the brilliant performance of star, creator, and executive producer Lisa Kudrow, and its fine ensemble of actors, The Comeback managed the rare feat of making a thrilling, critically acclaimed and wholly satisfying return. As The Independent noted “The result is one of the best comedies of the year, by turns excruciating and emotionally involving, anchored by a clever script which never laughs at Valerie despite the many small daily deaths she faces and a wonderful central performance from Kudrow who somehow manages to make self-obsession seem both necessary and touchingly brave.” The Paley Center proudly welcomes the series’ cast and creative team for what is certain to be a lively conversation and screening.
