Warning: Spoilers ahead!
Even in the very best of times, funeral services are the most uncomfortable occasions to go to.
But HBO Max’s Hacks is supplying a brand-new option to this issue: welcome a comic, particularly Deborah Vance (Jean Smart). Yes, she formerly pledged to never ever go to a funeral service, however for Ava (Hannah Einbinder), she made an exception.
The outcome is hilariously dark, with Deborah standing mid-funeral to state, “Oh god, this is so awkward. This is not how you’re supposed to do this.”
She goes on to provide a eulogy for Ava’s father, who passed away from a stroke. “It’s exhausting to lose a loved one,” she informs the mourners. “And now everybody’s uncomfortable because they think nobody has anything nice to say about this man. And I know that you do, not because I knew him—I didn’t—but I know his daughter.”
Deborah then states the best thing she’s most likely ever stated to Ava: “I know he had to be a very special person to raise someone like her.”
