This Week In Comedy: Sebastian Maniscalco stars in a new Max series, Bookie. Maniscalco collaborated with Chuck Lorre for the series that “follows veteran Los Angeles bookie Danny (Maniscalco) as the potential legalization of sports gambling in California threatens to upend his business for good.” Most surprisingly, a reoccurring guest in the series is Charlie Sheen, who mended things with Lorre just for this new venture.

Also this week, Eddie Murphy is taking a trip ddown Candy Cane Lane in a new comedy film on Prime Video. The film features a supporting cast that tries to help - and thwart - Murphy on his quest to have the best Christmas lights, before an evil 12 days of Christmas curse gets in the way. Rounding out the cast includes Tracee Ellis Ross, Jillian Bell, Chris Redd, Nick Offerman, Robin Thede, and Ken Marino.

Finally, David Cross has a new special coming out tonight. The special is Worst Daddy in the World, which he has been touring all year under the same name. The special will stream on Veeps exclusively tonight at 5 PM PT, with Cross live chatting.
