Comedy Central’s Corporate was one of my favorite TV shows of 2018, and the second season (airing Tuesdays at 10:30) has been a nonstop delight, full of darkly absurd gonzo comedy. And this week’s episode brings guest star Andy Richter, Conan sidekick and eternal champion for his work on the woefully shortlived Andy Richter Controls the Universe.
The episode is called “The Tragedy,” and revolves around the kind of horrific calamity that seems to happen in our country once a day lately. In typical funny-freaky fashion, the episode entirely views the tragedy through the perspective of the narcissistic employees of Hampton DeVille. Some struggle to express their sorrow on social media. Others look for a way to monetize the tragedy. And with an eye toward upping the ratings on his 24-hour news network BNN, Christian (Lance Reddick) asks Richter to pretend to be one of the victims of the tragedy.
Watch the ensuing news segment above. “The Tragedy” airs Tuesday at 10:30 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
