ComingSoon.net is thrilled to debut an exclusive Chad clip from this week’s episode. The hit TBS sitcom stars Saturday Night Live alum Nasim Pedrad in the titular role as an awkward 14-year-old boy. The series focuses on Chad’s cringe-inducing attempts to become popular in school while also growing into his own identity as a Persian boy.
In this clip from the fifth episode, “Whiskey Slaps,” Chad explains to his mom why he doesn’t need a babysitter. It’s a brief, yet memorable, slideshow presentation that shows the comedy you can expect from Chad.
The show’s official synopsis reads, “A 14-year-old pubescent Persian boy (Nasim Pedrad) navigates his first year of high school on a mission to become popular. Chad’s friendships and sanity are pushed to the limits as he uses every tactic at his disposal to befriend the cool kids, while enduring his mother’s new dating life and reconciling with his cultural identity. Pedrad, who first made her mark on “Saturday Night Live,” is also creator, writer, executive producer and showrunner.”
The series premiered on April 6 and the fifth episode will premiere Tuesday, May 4, at 10:30 p.m. ET after an all-day Star Wars marathon.
