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 never knew Tiffany Haddish was a stand up comedian, I saw her in the Kevin Hart movie and thought she was an actress. I enjoyed her in that movie. I watched her They Ready special and while I found her annoying I enjoyed some of those comics - actually I enjoyed those comics much more than I did watching this special.
I am still trying to figure out where the "jokes" were in this special. She is literally just talking and when she wants a laugh she starts talking loudly and shaking her head. Sorry, but just raising your voice and snapping your head is not going to get a laugh from me. Also, the entrance was super weird. She came out on a chair with men carrying her and starting --- singing, rapping, I don't know. I was like what the heck is this that I am watching. I have a feeling the audience had to be guided as to when to make noise as it did not sound natural at all but rehearsed. Then she spent 5 minutes having her team come out on stage to fix her outfit that was riding up her ass, and during that a white stage hand was sweeping the floor and she made a comment "yeah white girl sweep that floor". I thought that was extremely distasteful. Can you imagine if a white person made a similar comment? If it's not ok for one race, then it's not ok for any race.
Overall, I didn't laugh a single time watching this "comedy" special and I feel that her comedy is extremely overrated.
