An Evening with It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Screening & Conversation
7:00 PM PT
One of the longest-running comedies in cable history, this FXX original series from creator Rob McElhenney about Irish bar owners in Philly continues to spotlight dark humor and main characters who can't seem to do anything right. Often referred to as "Seinfeld on crack," Always Sunny does not shy away from pointed social commentary, taking on such controversial topics as rape culture, homophobia, and religious bigotry. After eleven years on the air, the show is still the critics' favorite underdog, as Emily Nussbaum of the New Yorker has pointed out: "Always Sunny has become the milk-steak of sitcoms: the perfect food that no one has ever heard of." Upon a successful recent season finale, Matthew Rozsa of Salon declared that the series “hasn't lost any of its edge, mining dark comedy out of a twisted mythology that it has had more than a decade to develop." The creative team of Always Sunny will discuss the evolution of the series and how they are preparing for their twelfth season.
