Meet Andrea’s frank and funny co-stars
She’s surrounded by characters nearly as unfiltered as she is.
- Her colleague and writing partner, Kyle, (Jason Mantzoukas from Brooklyn Nine-Nine) is happy to rave to her about his porn idols
- Her dad, Martin (Martin Mull from Veep), overshares about recreational drugs
- Her mom Sharon (Kathy Baker) knows more about her son-in-law’s sperm count than he does!
But the show’s hidden gem is Tom Everett Scott (13 Reasons Why), who plays Andrea’s husband Mike. Mike is the straight guy to Andrea’s absurdity but, far from playing the longsuffering victim of her social ineptitude that a lesser show might have trotted out, he’s mostly in on the joke, gently if bemusedly colluding in her whacked take on other people and the world in general.
They’re best friends whose genuine affection for one another is peppered with jibes and whip-sharp exchanges like:
“Getting old is hard.”
“I know, but the alternative is death.”
Plus, there’s loads of chemistry between them, even if most of their attempts to get it on tend to devolve into ridiculous giggles.
Andrea’s also an attentive parent, who believes enquiring little minds deserve honest answers - usually wa-a-ay too honest, like when her daughter Amelia asks – in a crowded restaurant – “How could a baby even come out of your vagina?”
All in all, I’m Sorry is a kick-ass comedy package. The series carries an 81% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes and was recently renewed for a third season.
