Warning: Spoilers ahead!
Even in the best of times, funerals are the most difficult events to attend.
But HBO Max Hacks proposes a new solution to this problem: invite an actor, in particular Deborah Vance (Jean Smart). Yes, she once swore to never attend a funeral, but for Ava (Hannah einbinder), she made an exception.
The end result is hilarious, with Deborah standing up in the middle of the funeral to declare, “Oh my God, this is so embarrassing. That’s not how you’re supposed to do this.”
She then delivered a eulogy for Ava’s father, who died of a stroke. “It’s exhausting to lose a loved one,” she tells mourners. “And now everyone is uncomfortable because they think no one has something nice to say about this man. And I know you do, not because I knew him – I didn’t. didn’t know – but I know his daughter. “
Deborah then says the nicest thing she’s probably ever said to Ava: “I know he had to be a very special person to raise someone like her.”
