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.
Before I watched this I read some reviews and some of the bad ones kind of baffle me. I am not sure what people were expecting after decades. Maybe the greatest comedy act of all time. And when this wasn't that they one stared it in response. Yes it is ALOT about Ellen's coming out. It was a HUGE part of her life. A popular tv show that got run into the ground a year after she came out....that is going to effect someone. It probably took her YEARS to find the comedy in it. One of them complains about the comedy being about Rich People Problems....well yeah. That is kind of the point. When Ellen went from out of work actor to one of the most respected daytime talk show hosts on tv today. Some of her jokes are simply about would she still be "relatable" to her fans the same ones who made a comic a tv star and a tv star a talk show host.....my answer is yes. She is very relatable....that is kind of her shtick.
