Video: Netflix Brings Back 'Detroiters' Co-Star Tim Robinson in a Zany Comedy Series Starting Tuesday


April 22, 2019, 6:18 AM

A Metro Detroit funnyman can't be kept off TV, fortunately.

Comedy Central's loss is Netflix's gain as Tim Robinson resurfaces Tuesday on "I Think You Should Leave," a zany six-episode series he developed with Zach Kanin -- a fellow creator of "Detroiters." (A trailer is below.)

Cast members include Sam Richardson, who was Robinson's sidekick on that 2017-18 series taped here, and Shawntay Dalon, who played Robinson's wife.

The project is described as "a bonkers new sketch show" and "nuts." It features Robinson and comedy pals such as Fred Willard, Patti Harrison, Will Forte, Cecily Strong and Andy Samberg as they "navigate awkward workplace drama, host an intervention in a Garfield-themed house and talk their way out of a babysitter’s fake hit-and-run," according to Netflix. 

Its synopsis adds: "Tim Robinson and guests spend each segment driving someone to the point of needing — or desperately wanting — to leave. . . . There is no such thing as an ordinary interaction."

TV Guide senior editor Tim Surette loves what he previewed:

I was laughing so hard I was crying about 45 seconds in. Full disclosure: I love Tim Robinson. . . .

I'm still laughing just thinking about it. . . . Two thumbs up for this hilarious nonsense.

Scripts are by Robinson, Kanin and John Solomon, another SNL writing alumnus.

Robinson, who turns 38 next month, graduated from a Clarkston High School in 2000 and is a cast and writing alumnus of "Saturday Night Live."

Here's a look at the loud, madcap antics that start streaming this week:
