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.
I love stand up comedy and I'm willing to give any comic a huge chance to win me over. Unfortunately, Chris Rock was so boring. I'm terrible at predicting jokes and so many punchlines were obvious and stale. I actually couldn't believe a comic god like Chris Rock would have such dull and standard punchlines.
The worst part of the special is the racism. I don't mind if it would be interesting and a new take on racism, but it was the played out: "I'm black so I can make fun of white people all day with no repercussions." How original...
I would not recommend this special to anyone.
(P.S. I am only harsh here because I love comedy and I want to give my honest opinion. I really didn't want to dislike this special.)
