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.
Ellen is undoubtedly one of the most beloved comedians today, if not the most. She doesn´t really have to do much to make one laugh, she really is funny just being herself...at least on her talkshow that is. This however was almost cringeworthy to watch. You could see her noticing when she didn´t get the reaction she was expecting from the crowd after a joke. I felt like I was waiting for a punchline throughout the whole show but there never was one. It was almost like someone was forcing her to be there.
Although I did like the throwbacks of when she started out as a comedian. That was very relatable. So maybe she should´ve made this into a TED talk instead?
