I’m going to guess that Michael Ian Black plays a pretty good Satan. That’s his role in tomorrow night’s episode of Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters, the comedic Black Mirror-style horror anthology that we recently spoke to Goldthwait about, and it’s one Black was pretty much born to play. His entire schtick is smiling like a shark while saying gross, unsettling, inappropriate things, and that extreme smarm level should be a perfect fit for the Prince of Lies himself.
In this clip Satan finds himself in a group therapy session with soul-selling pop star wannabe Caleb Faustini (Ross Bryant) and Faustini’s mom (Mr. Show’s Jill Talley). Faustini is so exhausting even the devil can’t bear being around him, and tried to back out on their deal. That’s the set-up: now click play and watch the thing.
Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters airs on Tru TV on Wednesdays at 10 PM. This episode premieres tomorrow night. If you want to learn more about the hard streets of Vermont and see Caleb put Ben and Jerry about their brutal business, that’s the time to do it.
