Storyline

Inspired by the comedy of Lil Rel Howery ("Uncle Drew," "Get Out," "The Carmichael Show"), REL is a multi-camera comedy starring Howery as a successful, hardworking father and husband on the West Side of Chicago, whose life is perfectly on track. That is, until he finds out his wife is having an affair with his own barber - the worst person for your wife to sleep with, because as hard as it is to find love, it's even harder to find a good barber. Now separated, and with his son and daughter having moved to Cleveland with their mother, Rel must begin the difficult task of rebuilding his life as a long-distance single dad. Offering Rel support are his best friend and unfiltered sounding board, BRITTANY (Jessica "Jess Hilarious" Moore, "Wild 'N Out"), and his recently out-of-jail, excitable and overly encouraging younger brother, NAT (Jordan L.

It's just not working
19 November 2018 | by tanishia-allenSee all my reviews

I watch the show every week, i really want it to win but after 8 episodes it's not gonna work. Rel is a funny guy and he's talented but this show is just not cutting it. If Jerrod is working on this , i don't understand why it is so bad. Jerrod and Rel were excellent on The Carmichael Show, i was hoping for the same type of comedy as the Carmichael show was phenomenal even for the short period of time. The jokes are lame the acting is lame , it's just lame. Rel is lame. I will support as I want black shows to win but this is a flop. Please go back to the drawing board before fox cancels it.
