Nothing new, but still funny
11 December 2019 | by SureCommaNotSee all my reviews

If you don't mind a shrill voice, speaking on the same topics as 95% of Netflix comics, you'll enjoy this just fine. I did. Comedy can have a profound impact on the listener, raising valid points about society and the individual. And you may find a little of that here. But not a lot. Go ahead and rate this review as unhelpful if you're wanting me to say more about Wolf's approach per se, and less about my own perspectives on the issues discussed, but I want to use the second half of my review to point out one specific area where Wolf talked about the same topics as other comics, but with less nuance and insight. And that's the topic of abortion. I think comics should be free to joke about anything, especially if it's a good joke, so I don't have issue with Wolf. I just hope society sees the dehumanization abortion causes, and takes it as seriously as other areas where human beings are treated as less than human. Would we sympathize with a wifebeater who says, "Hey, my house, my rules"? Or would we sympathize with someone who owns slaves, whether out of convenience or because of a harrowing sob story showing their need for a helper they can command? One day we'll look back on how flippantly people dehumanized other genetically distinct human beings, through abortion, and we'll recognize how atrocious it is when any demographic of person is treated as property. We'll wonder how anyone cheered for it, in the same way that we wonder how the other atrocities we've seen in history went on for so long.
