Storyline

Money is a running theme in Gary Gulman's comedy special, In This Economy?, where he shares some of his money-saving tips, like staying in a relationship and buying a water filter. He talks about his obsession with Bill Gates, who is worth $59 billion, and launches into an imaginary dialogue between Bill Gates and Donald Trump. His stories about the financial triumph of a parking ticket turning out to be a coupon for Bed Bath & Beyond and finding a $20 bill in his coat pocket and thus being able to afford the $2 guacamole at Chipotle are laughably relatable.

So overrated as a comedian
17 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

First let me say i'm a HUGE comedy fan, Steven Wright, Demetri Martin, Mike Birbiglia, Mitch Hedberg, Rodney Dangerfield, Henny Winterman, Anthony Jeselnik- all comedy legends IMO. All have material that is rich in clever, unique jokes, all have confidence and perfect timing.

But this guy Gary Gulman is just not my cup of tea- as far as stand up goes.

He really forces his points of humour through his material. He is constantly whinging about world and social issues- almost as if this is his platform for releasing his personal problems with the world, or his world. Constant whinging about Bill Gates' and Donald Trumps fortunes, gets old very quickly. Punchlines and jokes that you can see a mile away, poor and not- so-confident delivery, almost like he is seeking approval from the audience before he delivers them.

I just cant stand when a stand up comic spends half the time whinging about serious issues (George Carlin suffers from this sometimes) rather than just focusing on making us laugh.

Comedy, not politics and religion please.
