Friday, May 28, 2010: Party Down

If you haven't been watching Party Down, then... well, you probably don't have Starz. (It's a pay channel.) But if you do get Starz, you need to watch Party Down. It's an incredibly funny show about cater-waiters in Los Angeles, and it stars Parks & Rec's Adam Scott, The State's Ken Marino, Veronica Mars's Ryan Hansen and True Blood's Lizzy Caplan as the wait staff. Most of them are aspiring actors, but they also have a clueless stage mom (Megan Mullally) on staff, and each episode follows them to a different event, where they encounter ridiculous characters from L.A.'s power elite, as well as its dregs. This week, it's the dregs, but they're very funny dregs.

The party tonight is going down at the opening night of a community theater production of a play called Not on Your Wife. The State's Kerri Kenney and Human Giant's Rob Huebel play community actors, and Jim Piddock (Best in Show) plays the theater's president, who is also the mentor of Ryan Hansen's character, Kyle. To help out the floundering theater, Kyle must romance a wealthy patron at the party, played by Kerri's occasional Reno 911 co-star Rachael Harris. And did we mention that The State's David Wain is directing? This normally funny show might just be extra-funny tonight.

Party Down airs tonight at 10/9C on Starz. And check out our guides to new and returning summer shows for more suggestions!
