Comedian Cheri Oteri hasn’t done much since leaving Saturday Night Live back in 2000. Luckily, she now has a new web series on AMC called Liza Life Coach that’s perfectly-suited to her brand of humor. In it, Oteri plays Liza, an oblivious life counselor to a smattering of direction-less hopefuls and proves that she still retains that idiosyncratic charm and bumbling innocence of the caricatures she was known for on SNL.
As a “trained professional,” Liza doles out advice to those in need: the man who won the lottery but has a moral issue with cashing in; the grief counselor who is too happy for her job; the big shot celebrity who is ashamed of his real vocation as a clown. (Note: You can also submit your own “entertaining” quandaries via video, per review, in exchange for a personalized video response from Liza herself, in character.)
