The Funny Dance Show, E!’s (*124) absurd new Monday-night reality series from 4 May at 21:30, is light on its feet. The competitors are all comedians and instead of judging on technical challenges and mastery of dance steps and positions, it leans into physical comedy. Forget watching people swish about in ballgowns or doing the Samba and Tango in outfits that only a toddler pageant queen could love – we want to see a man dressed as a pot plant vogueing his heart out.
But don’t expect just tomfoolery. Some things in comedy are even funnier from a serious start. Judges Loni Love (guest DJ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, 2003now), Allison Holker (Devil Girl in the drama series Hit The Floor, 2013-now) and Justin Martindale (producer of Funny You Should Ask, 2017-now, on SABC3) give direct and en-pointe critiques before getting as pun-tastic as possible.
