The Producers (1967- Original)

This film was Mel Brook's first movie, which was ironically sort of a flop when released, forgotten and later rediscovered by accident. It is hard to imagine that a Jewish person would make fun of Nazi Germany, only 20 years after the end of WWII, but this is the tip of the iceberg in terms of Mel's creative genius. This is a satirical black comedy that centers around a slick producer who sets off to commit fraud by raising money for a flop broadway play named Springtime for Hitler: A Gay Romp with Adolf and Eva at Berchtesgaden. There are some things that I love about this version and overall, I think it is funnier than the musical. I have laughed until running out of air with this one.

Workin’ Moms (2017-2020)

This is a Canadian television sitcom that follows a group of friends as they deal with the challenges of being working mothers. The story revolves around Kate and Anne (two best friends since college) who share a very strong bond, no bullshit between these two. They don't hold anything back and this is shown from the first episode as they stare at each other's bare chest and engage on a debate about the 'sogginess level' of their boobs after motherhood. 😀 The primary driver behind the humor is the indifference shown by society and partners, who have no idea of how hard it is to make it all work.
