Kevin Hart, Real Husbands of Hollywood – BET Networks and JSR Productions

Whether you think Kevin Hart’s just a hilarious comedian or some kind of African-American Woody Allen (yeah, chew on that one), he has truly captured comedic lightning in a bottle with this fake reality show about Hollywood husbands. The endlessly farcical bickering and back-stabbing makes the Real Housewives seem like
amateurs—and Hart’s constant inability to reign in his friends or make any situation go his way translates into a fast-paced rollercoaster ride that both skewers celebrity culture as well as the reality shows that keep it fed. We hope that Hart stays in the mock reality show game for a long time.

Honorable Mentions

Fred Armisten, Portlandia – IFC – We can’t get enough of Armisen’s ridiculous characters, who all hail from Portland and parody every aspect of the city.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep – HBO – Wanna talk solid? Then let’s discuss Louis-Dreyfus’ strangely believable turn as a bumbling VP who can’t seem to get a break.

Joel McHale, The Soup – E! Entertainment – McHale has literally honed his weekly skewering of pop culture and Hollywood to a science. And no one has ever made better use of a green screen.
