Another reviewer wrote "she seems to have based her observations on watching other comedians, as there was very little I hadn't heard elsewhere - and better - before." I cannot disagree with this.
I did not really know much about Whitney Cummings going in to this, but by the time it was over, I just felt dead inside. I got zero laughs out of this. She not only seems to have nothing really clever to say, but many of her comments seem way off (like she is not on the same plane of existence as the rest of the world).
She seems to be directing her comedy towards women and against men. That is not a good idea, and will not get her many fans. There is a stereotype in stand-up comedy that women are not funny (with a few minor exceptions)... Cummings does not help break this stereotype.
