Depressed people shouldn't be comedians or at least they should cure themselves before going on stage.
2 August 2020 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

I've been watching a lot of stand-up comedians lately, discovered some very funny comedians that I will follow in the future, but also stumbled on some annoying not very funny wannabe comedians like Chris Gethard. I don't know any of his previous shows, this was the first one for me (and for sure also the last one), so it was waiting to get surprised or bored, and boring it was. He reminds me of the show Nanette from Hannah Gadsby, another depressing person ranting about things nobody cares, so if you're a fan of Career Suicide, if you like watching depressing people give that one a go as well. Career Suicide is first of all way too long, I can't believe people would pay to watch a guy talking about his depression for that long. Chris Gethard talks like he's a motivational speaker for the local group of people with suicidal tendencies. He looks like he's going to start crying any moment in his show, very funny if you ask me (I'm being sarcastic). Not only is his monologue long and boring, it's also just not funny besides the odd mild joke every now and then. Chris Gethard and Hannah Gadsby should do a show together, just to see who can whine the most, to see who will bore someone to death the first.
