A Family Affair

The largest accomplishment for Modern Family, the best sitcom to emerge on network television over the past few years, isn’t the fact that it’s racked up trophy after trophy for its genius. The most notable achievement is how the mock-doc style show has become the most consistently enjoyable half-hour on television by simply being fresh and funny. No gimmicks, no reinvention of the format that is often all too tired. Strong characters and an even stronger relatability factor handle the job of dishing out laughs admirably while other sitcoms attempt to beat viewers over the head with trendy, quick banter or with the stale fat-guy-with-hot-wife formulas. Join Phil (Ty Burrell), Cam (Eric Stonestreet), Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and show co-creator Steve Levitan as they discuss the show in front of a modern audience at the Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St., for The Modern Family Panel at 8 p.m. Tuesday. Tickets start at $20. Visit attpac.com for information.
Tue., April 24, 8 p.m., 2012
