The comedy network S.O.-S is coming to an end after a two-season run, leaving fans and critics alike stunned and disappointed.
But the show is still beloved by a new generation of viewers, who now view it as a comedy classic.
The series premiered in late February, and S.P.Y. is coming out April 1.
We caught up with co-creator and star Justin Kirk to talk about the show’s legacy, his own thoughts on the future of S.E.C. and his feelings on his own death.
First, how long have you been doing stand-up?
I’ve been doing it for six years now.
It was something I wanted to do since I was in college.
I was a big fan of all these comedians.
They’re so honest.
And they’re so funny.
But I didn’t know what I was doing.
It just sort of started to be a way of life.
Did you find out anything about your future?
I don’t know.
It’s hard to say.
I just didn’t want to know.
What do you think of the show being on a hiatus?
It’s definitely a different experience.
It takes a different path.
I guess what I’m saying is that the world is a different place.
You can get a show like S.S. to a place that would be a bit like a sitcom or a show that’s not really comedy.
It would have been like a reality show.
But then you would be able to have the people, like the people who made it, and you could have a different sort of comedy.
I don’ think I’m going to be able, either, to be in the same room with them again.
I’m sure that will be something I’ll be able do.
How does it feel to be leaving the show that you started?
I mean, I don”t know.
I mean it feels like a massive shock.
I”m not a person who would ever leave something.
But to me, I feel like it was a very big mistake for the show.
What does that mean for you?
It”s like, I never wanted to leave the show I started.
I knew that I wanted it to continue and that it would be something we’d be talking about and that people would be laughing about, and that we’d get a laugh from people watching.
But now, it just feels like I”ve been left.
What are your thoughts on people saying that they feel it’s a waste of time?
Yeah, it feels really bad.
Because the fans, it was like, We don”ve wasted time.
And it feels so wrong.
But they were so right.
The fact that it was canceled, the fact that the show was canceled is kind of like a big deal.
It feels like people were so wrong about it.
They were right about it being canceled.
But it’s like, well, maybe we’re all right.
We’re still going to laugh.
I wish I had the opportunity to go back and do it, because it would feel so good to be back.
I have a lot of fans.
I think people are so sad.
And I think that they are right.
So how did you feel when you were approached to be the host of a new show?
I had been thinking about it for so long.
It”ll be really sad to be gone, because I really love doing comedy.
So I was just thinking about how I”d be so sad to leave that.
And then I just kind of looked at it.
I thought, I just really loved doing it.
And so I kind of did what I always do.
I made a list of things I wanted the show to be about and I said, “Here’s what I want to do it about.”
And it”s the opposite of what I”ll ever do.
It has to be something that’s going to bring people together.
That”s what I love about it: That it”ll bring people to the stage.
But there”s no reason to do that.
You”re not going to find that.
So there was a little bit of a moment where I was like “I”m done with this.”
And then, like, it happened.
It seemed like there was no need for me to be doing anything else.
But that was a moment when I just decided, well.
I really like doing this.
I love doing the comedy.
And the only reason I do this is because I love comedy.
How did you end up coming back to it?
I got the call and I got in the car and I drove out to L.A. It didn”t seem like it would make sense to me.
So, I drove to L in a red Prius.
But after I got out of the car, I went to L’s restaurant and then got my picture taken with her. And that
