For those who haven't yet caught wind of Peacock's latest comedy, True Story with Ed & Randall, there are two mega-fans of the show who are ready to tell you all about it. Oh, and they also happen to be the show's hosts: Ed Helms and Randall Park! Here's what they had to say for themselves...

In True Story with Ed & Randall, comedic actors Ed Helms and Randall Park team up for a new take on comedy. The Peacock series is both scripted and unscripted, offering a refreshing twist for viewers. In the show, which recently premiered on January 20th, the hosts sit down and chat with everyday folks to hear about their extraordinary true stories. But that's not all: the stories are then acted out by some seriously talented actors - just like your favorite true crime or biopic series. Plus, some big names stop by to show their faces as well, including Terry Crews. Fans already can't get enough of the down-to-earth and authentic guests that come on to the show and praise the creative team for bringing something truly unique to the table. And Ed and Randall couldn't agree more...

Helms and Parks sat down with Collider to gush about their new project and talk all things comedy. "Randall Park is the ideal co-host," Ed said in the interview. "It has been as much fun as I hoped. It has just been an absolute blast to make this show." And it was clear that the sentiment was echoed by the Park, who had actually admired his castmate for quite some time. "Just the thought of being able to sit down with Ed, who I've been a fan of and just loved for so long, and to just hang out with him and listen to these incredible stories from all these different people, it was a no-brainer," he gushed about signing onto the project (seen below).

And it doesn't look like these two want the good times to come to an end. "I'll be honest with you, I hope that we are doing this show for the next 20 years," Ed gushed. And we second that! Stay tuned for more...
