January 12th Launch Party for the Web Series at Videology in Brooklyn
“By far the best pilot I saw this year was Becky Yamamoto’s Uninspired... Yamamoto’s very much working in the cringe-comedy vein, but she’s got a great eye for detail and ways to embarrass her character” - AV Club
"...pleasantly refreshed by Yamamoto’s comedy. Much of it is embedded in cues within her dialogue that make you smile and think "God damn it, same!". BUST
"...it’s a perfect example of the kind of relatable, yet uniquely personal comedy product that resonates because it rings so true". - Splitsider
