Above Average is no stranger to really amazing comedy pieces. The online video branch of Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels’ production company Broadway Video is continuing the laugh-fest by releasing Alec Baldwin’s new relationship web series Alec Baldwin’s Love Ride.
In Love Ride, Baldwin stars as an “internationally-recognized relationship expert.” The 30 Rock actor invites couples into the back of his taxi cab in New York City. Aided by behind-the-scenes love advisor and Saturday Night Live sketch writer Paula Pell, Baldwin leads a quiz-style discussion about “sex, take-out food, binge-viewing Broad City,” and other elements that hold people’s relationships together. The first couple to share a ride with Baldwin is Corey and Francesca. Take a look:
“In my life, I’ve always wanted to help people avoid some of the mistakes I’ve made,” says Baldwin to Corey and Francesca, a rather honest admission for an otherwise amusing and light-hearted web series. He asks the married couple to say the date that they met (neither of them end up saying even the same month), and also pokes fun of them getting frozen yogurt when they need to do something impulsive and “cut loose.”
Love Ride is the brainchild of Baldwin, who co-produces the series with Mallory Schwartz. The first two episodes currently reside on Above Average’s website as well as its YouTube channel. New episodes will be released each week.
