Valerie Cherish

I was never a huge fan of "Friends", but Lisa Kudrow's performance as Valerie Cherish in the cancelled, yet nominated for an Emmy HBO Series: "The Comeback", is pretty awesome.

Its the kind of show that will make your skin crawl by watching her fuck up constantly, kinda the same way Ricky Gervais sticks his foot in his mouth in "The Office" so horribly.

HBO lists the premise as:

Ten years ago she was TV's "It" girl. Now It's a different story. For Valerie Cherish, no price is too high to pay for clinging to the television spotlight. Lisa Kudrow stars as Valerie Cherish, a former B-list sitcom star so desperate to revive her career that she agrees to star in a reality television show called The Comeback.

Below are the first three episodes of the series. Though the show requires some patience and can be challenging at times to watch Valerie make a fool of herself again and again, the series progresses once she starts to have some wins, thats when things get really good.
