Rides the closing of the race gap, but embraces child gender mutilation
19 March 2019 | by shide_85See all my reviews

This isn't good, but it isn't bad either - but do NOT exspect an 8-10 rated session or you will get disappointed.

There are few if any laugh out lout moments, but its still enjoyable at points as the assertions he draws and the comparisons he makes. He pulls alot from his own life as many comedians do, especially in one or more of their specials but he overfocuses on insights and positivety and in doing so often misses finishing setups and build ups with a good enough punchline.

I'd say he's inbetween the a and b lineup of comedians quite clearly, nowhere near the best ones but neither close to the worst either. If you keep that in mind you might enjoy it. I did, until he spoke up FOR gender mutilation of children. I detracted one star for that. -Its late in this special if you want to find that alone, in the last 1/4th or so.

In fairness he does try to focus on positivety and positive change throughout it, it is quite family friendly (though there is some swearing and some adult language that Ive come to understood those in USA might frown upon).
