Not Just a Standup Comedy Special
24 October 2019 | by jjb-sonisSee all my reviews

When taken for what it is worth and what it is meant to be, this is a pretty enjoyable show. There are indeed a few kind of blah moments. It is one part storytelling and one part comedy show. It is not meant to be just another standup comedy special. (Even the description of the show provided by Netflix that one can read before choosing to play it states as much.) The story told is personal and interesting and there are a few (and I do mean a few) touching moments that some of us can identify with (examples of unconditional love from a member of her family, stuff that might keep us from being as confident as we would like to be when doing what we do for a living, etc.). The comedy bits are also at times personal and often funny. I enjoyed this and it is worth giving it a watch if you want to enjoy something a bit deeper than the typical comedy special (not that I don't like the typical standup comedy specials performed by proper comedians, this just isn't one of them).
