"Prime Video has renewed Smothered — a comedy that centers on longtime gay couple Ralph (Jason Stuart) and Randy (Mitch Hara) — for a second season, a press release announced."
"Jason Stuart and Mitch Hara are returning for another outing of Amazon Prime's outrageous dark comedy SMOTHERED."
"The comedy team of Jason Stuart & Mitch Hara is breaking all records for the lol indie Comedy series SMOTHERED."
"An In depth interview with Jason Stuart & Mitch Hara on their hit comedy series "Smothered" on Amazon."
"LRM Online’s Gig Patta spoke with actors Jason Stuart and Mitch Hara in creating and starring in the web series. We discussed the origination of the show, writing the scripts, having guest stars, and the future of the series."
"After rave reviews on Amazon, SMOTHERED has created such a buzz it's on everyone's, "The Series To Watch" list, including Daily Xtra, Queertly & iHeartRadio.
Now REVRY makes SMOTHERED available on Apple TV, Samsung, Android TV, ROKU, FIRE TV and global platforms!"
"We started to write it out,” Stuart says. “Then it all came flowing. We knew there would be improv, and it works for us because we know where each other is going."
"Having been in a relationship for either 14 or 22 years (depending on which one of them you ask), whatever Ralph (Jason Stuart) and Randy (Mitch Hara) once felt for one another has gone into hiding, and the romance has long escaped their life together."
"Comedian, actor and star of the Amazon Prime series Smothered calls in to talk about his work, his new book and what it was like being gay and Jewish when he first started out.
About 15 minutes in, his co-star, comedian Mitch Hara joins in on the fun. These guys are hysterical! That takes up the first half of the show."
"Anybody could mistake Jason Stuart and Mitch Hara for a longtime married couple.
The two have an immediate rapport, a rapid-fire banter between them that lends itself toward completing each other’s thoughts, or spontaneous bickering. No wonder, then, that the pair decided to actually play a married couple in the new digital series Smothered."
"Amazon recently debuted an offbeat romantic comedy series titled Smothered about a gay, Jewish middle-aged couple who hate each other but can’t afford to get divorced. The comedy series highlights the occasional bliss, humour and love in the otherwise dysfunctional relationship."
"As written & performed by series creators Mitch Hara and Jason Stuart, Smothered captures the misery and mystery of long-term coupling, and of couples aging together. It’s a very funny look at domesticity gone horribly–and hilariously–sideways."
"With everything that’s happening in the world right now “Smothered” brings much needed comedic relief with a thirty-minute binge session of seven, five-minute episodes of outrageous, irreverent & laugh out loud bliss."
"Jason Stuart & Mitch Hara are at it again on The Robert Christian Show! And OMG! He is soooo crazy and nuts! BUT its sooo funny!"
