Jim Carrey is trying to focus on the positive in 2020, and to do so, the actor and artist is moving on from one of his ugliest muses: President Donald J. Trump. “Between the parts I’m playing and what’s actually occurring in my life, it’s really extraordinary,” Carrey said in an interview with IndieWire. “Well,

‘Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens’ Review: Comedy Central Series Is as Awkward as Its Title

One year since the final season of “Broad City” debuted, Comedy Central is releasing its heir apparent. “Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens” makes a few tweaks to the formula, including a singular borough (rather than Queens and Brooklyn), a singular lead (Awkwafina steps in for the double act of Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson), and

‘Avenue 5’ Review: Hugh Laurie Steers HBO’s Chaotic Space Odyssey Through a Rocky Start

Having eviscerated political systems on both sides of the Atlantic — and then witnessed each democracy devolve further than any satiric takedown could’ve imagined — it makes sense to see Armando Iannucci flee Earth for the final frontier. The creator of “Veep” and “The Thick of It” returns to HBO with “Avenue 5,” a space
