All Critics (21) | Top Critics (11)

Brought to life by local Chicagoans, both in front of and behind the camera, "South Side" succeeds in what it sets out to do: give viewers a more complete, if humorous depiction of life on Chicago's south side.

South side is my favorite comedy show of 2019. Does well depicting the south side of Chicago while providing social commentary and a great deal of laughs.

South Side barrages you with so many jokes, and in so short a time, that after a few minutes of watching, you'll feel drunk.

South Side is the funniest new show of 2019.

July 15, 2019 | Full Review…

Don't let me make this show sound too serious, however. It is very, very funny and frequently strange, while also quite cutting about sociopolitical topics.
