‘Chicago Party Aunt’ Ending Explained: Diane’s Family and Friends Prove They Care
Everyone is aware of that one individual who is always the life of the party. They’re always ready to have a good time, no matter what they do or where they go.
And, more often than not, they can be downright dysfunctional. And ‘Chicago Party Aunt’ Diane Dunbrowski’s middle name is probably dysfunctional!
“Chicago Party Aunt is a half-hour animated comedy that follows Diane Dunbrowski, AKA The Chicago Party Aunt, as she stays true to her mantra ‘If life gives you lemons, turn that shit into Mike’s Hard Lemonade,'” according to the show’s logline.
Other comedies to consider include ‘Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens,’ ‘The Neighborhood,’ ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ and ‘Only Murders In The Building.
‘Chicago Party Aunt’ follows the antics of Diane Dombrowski, who considers herself to be the physical embodiment of the city itself, having a heart of gold but being undeniably rough around the edges.
When her nephew Daniel decides he does not want to attend Stanford University, she strikes a deal with her sister to allow them both to stay at her condo.
The series chronicles their antics. Daniel teaches his aunt how to adapt to changing times, while she teaches him how to live in the moment. The series concludes on a sweet note: Episode 8, titled ‘Emergency Contact,’ takes place during Christmas, a time for friends, family, and celebration.
Netflix’s ‘Chicago Party Aunt’: Tv Review
That’s the lesson Netflix is learning with F Is for Family, the adult animated sitcom that has aired in the critical shadow of BoJack Horseman and Big Mouth for years.
F Is for Family, created by Bill Burr and Mike Price, is coarse as hell, but it’s also a series with marvelous regional and period specificity, with a raw emotional heart that’s more true to the show’s spirit than its occasional fat jokes and caricatures.
Everything that is great about F Is for Family — it isn’t the best of Netflix’s adult cartoons, but it may have found its tone the quickest — can be best illustrated by what failed in Hoops and what is initially so bumpy in the new Chicago Party Aunt.
Chicago Party Aunt, which was adapted by Chris Witaske, Jon Barinholtz, and Katie Rich from Witaske’s parody Twitter feed, feels very much like it was based on a Twitter feed, meaning it probably should have been made in 2011.

It also implies that, despite the fact that it masquerades as a character-driven comedy, it is actually joke-driven at the expense of character and narrative at every turn, to its detriment.
Lauren Ash portrays Diane Dunbrowski, a hairdresser, native of Wrigleyville, legendary Windy City party girl, and aunt. Diane’s callous disregard for anniversaries has prompted her husband, Kurt (Witaske), to leave her at the beginning of the series.
Her blue-collar neighborhood salon has been acquired by a hipster chain (with RuPaul Charles’ Gideon as her new boss), and she is about to gain a new roommate in her nephew Daniel (Rory O’Malley), a nerdy teen in need of life experiences prior to attending Stanford.
