In 2014 we’ve finally run out of euphemisms, because, frankly, they can’t keep up. Reality is imitating Art way faster than Art is doing the same to Reality, so, they’re kind of in a perpetual 69 position, which is another euphemism, and there I go doing it again.
The short of it is that tonight’s episode of “The Comeback, ” titled, very appropriately, “Valerie Is Brought to Her Knees, ” has been described by Salon’s Sonia Saraiya as “one of the most uncomfortably raw episodes of television I’ve seen in a while.”

And E sccoped it: “Everything You Need to Know About That Seth Rogen and Lisa Kudrow Blow Job Scene on The Comeback.”
“Valerie Is Brought to Her Knees” is about—and there’s no other way to put it—the sense of entitlement men in the entertainment business, in politics, in business and probably in the pizza delivery racket, for all we know—to receive oral gratification from women below their station.
There, I said it. It’s totally one sided, it doesn’t exist between women and their male underlings, and if it does, I’ll bet you the men don’t walk away feeling like they’ve just been used as receptacles for someone’s DNA.
It’s about a blow job. And it’s absolutely brilliant. Watch the episode below. You may never ask for—or receive—a blow job again.
Seth Rogen’s character Paulie G has written a scene where Lisa Kudrow’s character, Valerie Cherish, orally services him. It’s clear that Paulie despises Valerie, as Saraiya pointed out. The show he “wrote” for her, named “Seeing Red, ” is about blaming her for his heroin addiction. He takes revenge by humiliating her into blowing him.
“When you said that shit, I’d think to myself: Blow me, ” Rogen tells Kudrow. “Blow me, Valerie. Blow me.”
It’s truly brilliant and depressing and just not comedy. Not at all. It’s funny, though. The way a car crash can sometimes tickle our funny bone.
Do not miss it.
