I saw this on Netflix and was really excited about watching it. I'd seen Whitney Cummings on a roast a while back and she was really funny, and I've always wanted to see her stand up routine. Now I wish I hadn't.
First off, there is very little to recommend this special. In this she's just not that funny at all, and at times is more annoying than anything else. Most of her jokes are so generic that they just fall flat, and the rest don't quite make sense. At one point she makes a joke about how she looks like a 10-year-old boy, and how anyone who would be attracted to her must be a pedophile. This joke failed on so many levels that I won't even bother going into it here. Just go to her IMDb page and decide for yourself if her description of herself is even remotely fitting. In order for self-deprecating humor to work there has to be an element of truth to the joke. OK, she doesn't have large breasts. So that automatically equals 10-year-old boy? Not so much. Feels more like she's fishing for compliments.
Then there are jokes that are just lame. She went on and on about how men like sports. And not in a funny, unique way. She literally said "You men really like sports!" like it was the wittiest and most insightful thing a comedian had ever said. She then makes a few jokes off of that, none of which stand out because of how bland they are, and at one point actually says "Am I right ladies?" Seriously?
She also makes jokes about how great it would be to date a vampire, but like others, rather than going somewhere funny they just fall flat. That's her whole special; premise that sounds promising, build up, punchline that either doesn't make sense or is so horribly delivered that the joke just dies. Do this for about an hour and you have Money Shot.
Do yourself a favor and skip this crap.
