It's John Hodgman, not the Daily Show
18 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Yes, John Hodgman appears on the Daily Show as the "Deranged Millionaire". Some may be disappointed that he does not occupy his comedy special with that same familiar slant of the former. Even without preconceived notions of what direction this performance ought to take, not everyone will enjoy, for example, his impish, sardonic observations on sperm whales, or the ridiculousness of sports. But many will appreciate this humor. It is different. It's Nerdy, preposterous, often adorably inappropriate, and smart- it's stand-up/performance art, delightfully dry and clever, without being overly snarky and mean. More often than not, stand-up productions fit themselves into one of the safe, laugh producing molds. There is plenty of that to occupy one's screen with if this doesn't do it for you. As another reviewer has alluded to, there are three audience members (non-members?) in the front row, sitting next to each other, and they look absolutely miserable. There is something else going on there. John did not make them miserable. They were miserable. Fortunately there was a happy, captive audience to help the millionaire convey his deranged message beyond the front row via laughter.
