KRUISER’S MORNING BRIEF: Catherine O’Hara, ‘Schitt’s Creek,’ and Comedy Brilliance.

Having spent most of my adult life in the comedy business, I’m a bit picky when it comes to sitcoms and whatever else is put forth as humor on television, especially in recent years. Veep bores me. The Big Bang Theory was painful. Modern Family has its moments, I will admit. I do like The Good Place.

Schitt’s Creek, however, is the funniest non-animated thing I’ve seen on television in a long time, and I’m afraid I may never see anything this good again. O’Hara is absolutely unreal. The show was created by her old SCTV colleague Eugene Levy and his son Daniel. If Levy didn’t write this part for his old friend, she immediately made it look as if it were written for her.

Great show.
