Wanda Sykes, delivers a sharp-witted and hilarious critique on the state of the world, addressing her perspective on the current political and cultural climate, which she can only describe as, well - not normal.
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.
Let me start off by saying I'm a huge Ellen fan. I was super excited when Relatable was announced, but the hype died even at first quarter of the stand up. The good side : it had some funny parts but not ones that's memorable or invoked lasting laughters. Ellen looked good but gave out vibes that she is trying so much, it was like a hidden struggle with jokes, and that isn't Ellen's usual ways at all. I found it pretty mediocre, to be honest. I stopped watching halfway and switched over to her older stand up "Here and Now" just to get rid of the unpleasant feeling from Relatable. I still love you Ellen.
