In her fourth stand-up special, Whitney Cummings returns to her hometown of Washington, D.C., and riffs on modern feminism, relationships, technology and, of course, sex robots. She also brings a very special guest to say hi.
I've never understood the hype around Tiffany Haddish. I've seen her in acting capacities and to me, she seems to play the exact same character in everything. Never saw any of her stand up routines so I gave this one a try. And one thing I noticed was that just like Iliza Shlesinger's newest special, she's performing to a crowd of pandering seals waiting at the ready to clap and bark at literally everything she says. For example she said "I bought a microscope" and the crowd actually whooped and hollered at it. She even had to tell the crowd to sit down because for whatever reason after an opening standing ovation they just....kept standing?
She didn't seem to be telling jokes. She was basically just talking AT the audience about the most random things. Everything she said seemed to be going for applause rather than laughs. Even to the point where she kept pausing, expecting a round of clapping in return. The whole thing was just a mess. And after seeing this and other things she's been in, I'm STILL at a loss for why the powers that be keep trying to make this woman happen.
The only reason I gave this trash one star was because i couldn't give it zero.
