Brilliant first half, boring second half
2 November 2018 | by marcosvinuesaSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed the first part of this stand up special: hilarious jokes and nice reflections. But as minutes pass the show loses quality. It seems as if he had prepared a 40 minutes show and Netflix had told him to make it longer. He spends the last minutes with longer and less funny jokes. Just to put an example, he spends about five minutes with a boring joke in which he imitates Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama. All in all, it was an entertaining special. It just suprised me how it goes from super funny to quite boring.
