Unforgettable!
9 July 2019 | by sb584012See all my reviews

This Aziz's stand up special is to comedy is what Everybody's Free to Wear Sunscreen is to music - somewhat reminiscent of Nanette (minus all the righteous anger) and used impeccably as a comeback vehicle by Aziz. Carefully chosen words, practiced precision like Seinfeld, deft and somewhat manipulative use of emotions (especially manufacturing the emotions that by "forgiving" Aziz, you are somehow becoming the bigger person), and jarring camera position to keep it intimate, the set is flawlessly designed.

However, beside designs and precisions, there are two factors that can only be earned - a sincere honesty, brutal, incisive, thought-provoking, equivocal-ambiguous honesty that constantly asks you to be present in the set with your full faculties -always conscientious and questioning. And above all, extreme compassion towards all our frailties, misunderstandings, misgivings, missteps. Aziz evokes a dark sense foreboding in reevaluating his own jokes, stating in no uncertain terms that in 50 years, it would be difficult to justify our own behavior (to homeless people among others), or we have got 60 more times to meet our parents. This level of compassion had steered the second season of "Master of None" to a masterpiece, now shepherds this rather ingenuous set to unforgettability - a momentous achievement.
