HBO's New Comedy Series, Silicon Valley, Sets High Expectations for Mike Judge Fans

Silicon Valley

In the trailer for Silicon Valley, writer and director Mike Judge (Beavis and Butt-Head, Office Space) manages to blend slapstick humor, sexual vulgarity and plain-old silly into HBO's new flavor: comedic genius. It is all but 30 seconds, however, Judge casts his reel of funny and he definitely has me hooked.

In Silicon Valley, the awkward tech goons of the start-up industry are tired of taking the backseat. The trailer highlights three characters: the book-smart-not-so-street-smart nerd (Thomas Middleditch), the token Middle-Eastern guy (Kumail Nanjiani), and the “cool” wise guy (T.J. Miller), who are on the humble (and in this case hilarious) road of entrepreneurship.
