Interview with Jason Stuart and Mitch Hara, creators and stars of “Smothered” on YouTube by Suzanne 5/5/23
This was so much fun. It’s always great to speak with comedians because they make me laugh so hard. I hope you enjoy this video as much as I did. Don’t miss their show on YouTube! Season 2 premiered May 12 and it’s even funnier than season 1. This is NSFW, and neither is the series, but don’t let that stop you! Watch both seasons here – They’re short form, so it won’t take you long!

Smothered is the short form series from creators Jason Stuart & Mitch Hara which will be coming back for its highly anticipated 2nd season in May 2023 on all major streaming services including Amazon. Smothered was named ‘One of the best comedy series’ by Amazon for their first season and was nominated for the Spotlight Award at the Indie Series Awards. Stuart, a respected actor/comedian/activist with over 150 film & TV credits, and in 2022 was named one of Out Magazine’s OUT 100 (which highlights the most popular and influential LGBTQIA+ celebrities in the US), won Best Actor in a Comedy Series for Smothered’s first season by the Indie Series Awards. Mitch Hara is a graduate from the acclaimed Actor’s Studio in NYC and has appeared on numerous film and television series. Season 2 of Smothered promises to be even bigger and better than season 1 and boasts an impressive cast of guest stars that include Amanda Bearse (Married w/ Children), Jai Rodriguez (Bros), Carole White (Laverne & Shirley), Scott Krinsky (Chuck), and more. Smothered follows an entitled bickering boomer aged gay couple (Stuart & Hara) who, because they can’t afford to get a divorce, try and salvage their hideous relationship in therapy hell before they kill each other and everyone else.
Both Stuart and Hara were nominated for Best Actor, and the series for Best Digital Series, at the Queertly Awards and are on the list for consideration for Outstanding Actors & Series for the Emmy Awards.
