The good thing about it looks like Mike cleaned up his act a lot.
Other then that thought this was terrible! So much so I walked out after about 20 minutes of the show.
Boring, pretentious, pompous, felt very staged and rehearsed (as opposed to being natural). Hard to call something the "truth" when someone else obviously writes the lines for you; and then you follow it like a parrot (as this appeared to be).
Also a lot of the material was racist. When a "comedian" has to resort mainly to dirty and racist jokes, it's usually done in lieu of talent, skill, or creativity. I'm not talking about those that do/did it well like Eddy Murphy, Richard Prior, Red Fox, etc., as you know when they do they got a lot more going for them.
Don't waste time on this one. There are much better biographic comedies out there to see instead.
