In his first stand-up special, Hasan Minhaj weaves humorous and heartbreaking anecdotes to tell his life story as an Indian-American Muslim. Topics include racism, bullying and meeting the demanding expectations of his immigrant parents.
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.
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.
