Netflix viewers are praising the new series I Think You Should Leave for being the funniest show on the streaming service. 

The comedy sketch series has been created by actor Tim Robinson, known for his appearances in Comedy Central sitcom Detroiters, as well as on Saturday Night Live.

It’s made up of just six episodes of just 18 minutes each, but each one is packed with around five different sketches, offering viewers multiple hilarious story lines for the price of one, with the added bonus of a whole host of guest stars.


Check out the trailer here:

Sam Richardson, Will Forte, Andy Samberg, Cecily Strong and Fred Willard all make appearances alongside Robinson in his hotchpotch collection of sketches, which range from a sketch about a baby contest, to a musical Walk The Line spoof, and everything in between.

The official Netflix synopsis sums it up nicely:


There is no such thing as an ordinary interaction in this offbeat sketch comedy series that features a deep roster of guest stars.

The short run time makes the series perfect for bingeing, but even after making their way through every episode fans have returned to rewatch their favourite sketches.

Speaking about the bite-sized episodes in an interview with GQ, creator Robinson said:


When you start putting sketches back to back some of it can feel exhausting, so we decided to just keep cutting them down. Then when we got to that length, everything flowed way better.

Many viewers have taken to Twitter to talk about the show, and the reactions are resoundingly positive.

Chris Hayes, from MSNBC show All In With Chris, wrote:


The Instagram skit from I Think You Should Leave just made laugh harder than anything I’ve seen in a while. Just put me in the wet wet mud.

While TV producer Mike Shoemaker tweeted:

If you steal Netflix then be an adult and sign up and immediately watch “I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson”. The algorithm will be verrry impressed with your comedy taste cause it’s one of the best sketch shows in sketch show history.


Video producer Brian David Gilbert said:

By developing an antiestablishment Other whose purpose in the scene is not to be the butt of the joke but instead an impetus for change, the car focus group sketch in “I Think You Should Leave” is the most important piece of subversive comedy in the past decade.

I think that’s everyone’s entertainment sorted for this weekend!

I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson is now streaming on Netflix.
