No Score Yet Jen Kirkman: Just Keep Livin'? (2017) Kirkman balances the style and point of view that drew me to her comedy in the first place: It's a conversational 70 minutes brimming with biting honesty. - Paste Magazine EDIT

No Score Yet Chris D'Elia: Man On Fire (2017) He fails to give it the softening blow of a joke or personal anecdote. D'Elia taps into something dark, but he doesn't tie it back to his own experience and therefore make it more relevant than a pure rant. - Paste Magazine EDIT

No Score Yet Tom Segura: Mostly Stories (2016) More than the average comic, though, Segura has a natural and capable storytelling ability, one that lifts his narratives out of average anecdote fare and plants them firmly in hilarious ground. - Paste Magazine EDIT

8.3/10 83% Jim Gaffigan: Cinco (2017) Where his topics might feel like retreads at times, Gaffigan's voice work serves his comedy well and keep things moving. Leave the heckling to the man onstage because he's well aware how he's doing. - Paste Magazine EDIT

100% John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid (2015) Mulaney's work benefits from the writer's carefully crafted timing, and in the past he's adeptly drawn out parts, punctuated others and built his jokes with a cadence and rhythm that add to their humor. - Paste Magazine EDIT
