Her innocent good looks are just a cover for Last Comic Standing winner Iliza Shlesinger's acerbic, stream-of-conscious comedy that she unleashes on an unsuspecting audience in her hometown of Dallas in her stand-up special "War Paint."
In her fourth stand-up special, Whitney Cummings returns to her hometown of Washington, D.C., and riffs on modern feminism, relationships, technology and, of course, sex robots. She also brings a very special guest to say hi.
In this Netflix stand-up special, newly wed Iliza Shlesinger, investigates marriage and its traditions. She discusses the required preparations as a woman, long-standing traditions as garters and veils, and the horror that is a bachelorette party.Written by
I've loved Iliza's previous specials, but this one just didn't stand up to the bar I had set for it. I'm all for political jokes, feminist jokes, social commentary, etc (even if I personal disagree with the point being made) when done well but a lot of the material for this set fell flat. Like, some of it was just observances without an actual joke. Idk, it wasn't terrible but not as good as I was expecting.
