John Mulaney relays stories from his childhood and Saturday Night Live (1975), eviscerates the value of college, and laments getting older in this comedy special. Other topics include the church, his family, Trump and pedophiles abducting kids.
Her innocent good looks are just a cover for Last Comic Standing winner Iliza Shlesinger's acerbic, stream-of-conscious comedy that she unleashes on an unsuspecting audience in her hometown of Dallas in her stand-up special "War Paint."
Comedian John Mulaney talks about his milk toast boyish looks, his childhood, his Jewish girlfriend, his gayish charm, his favorite TV shows, Ice-T, a homeless person he met in N.Y., and a prostate exam with Batman.
Nearly perfect, this debut comedy special by the personable comic is one of the best of its kind. Wong herself is extremely entertaining and hilarious, and her material here is extraordinarily well-delivered, with perfect timing and no clunkers to be found from beginning to end. Tackling a variety of issues that have affected her throughout her life, Wong's comedy is accessible to everyone because of her stage presence, which is both ahead of the audience and attuned to their overall mood. This is a great way to spend an hour, and promises that Wong has plenty more to offer her growing audience.
