I wish I was alone together with Esther.
20 July 2020 | by shalenimcbainSee all my reviews

If you didn't know Esther before, you'll see her comedy, and a look in to who she is while having some laughs. If you already know Esther, you'll laugh you ass off and want to be adopted in to her family.

I was super happy to see her first comedy special and it far exceeded my expectations. It was unlike any "comedy special" I've seen and interpreted so many... things.
