Alex Borstein plays her manager Susie Myerson, Michael Zegen plays her estranged husband Joel, Marin Hinkle and Tony Shalhoub play her parents, Kevin Pollak and Caroline Aaron play her in-laws and Luke Kirby portrays her love interest, real-life comedian Lenny Bruce. The series wrapped its fourth season this March, and has been renewed for a fifth season, which will be its last.
