Great set. Especially for a 60 y/o white guy.
10 July 2018 | by tyboulderSee all my reviews

I recently saw Dana Carvey on Seinfeld's car-and-coffee-themed talk show, and he was hilarious. I loved Carvey growing up so I decided to see what he'd done since. I found his 2008 standup act (the one with "Monkeys" in the title) and it blew me away. The level of intensity in that special is superhuman.

Having caught up a bit, I decided to watch Straight White Male, 60. In this special he comes across with the energy you might expect from a normal adult, which is fine. I thought this routine was solid and his impersonations spot on.

I'm neither here nor there when it comes to politics, and I'm a couple decades younger than Carvey, but his material was so well done that I was laughing with him from his point of view. That said, it's hard to understand why 20 percent of voters so far have given this special a "1."

I don't know if it was Trump fans who were triggered by his (very well done) Trump impersonation, or if Millennials were triggered by the couple jabs he took at their generation- but either way, it was all light hearted- and more importantly, funny. If you can't laugh at yourself a little bit then standup might not be your thing. I don't know. But this special is definitely worth watching if you're a Dana Carvey fan, or just getting acquainted.
