Could've been much better
26 December 2013 | by Bruce722See all my reviews

Iliza Shlesinger's stand-up special is one of the better female stand-ups around. She is able to deliver laugh after laugh without resorting to the same sexist or sexual content that so many other women seem to resort to in order to be successful. The only weak part, in my opinion at least, was that she seemed to use way too much vocal sound effects. Sure, sometimes it actually added to the bit or the punchline but more times than not it just detracted from it. It actually got somewhat annoying at times as well. It seemed to me that she had never run that by people because I'd imagine someone would've told her something. Nonetheless, the material is great but the execution could've been better.
