No Score Yet Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King (2017) Bluntly honest about the difficulties of being brown in America without ranting about Muslim bans, Trump's presidency, and other obvious issues that have been touched on before. - Uproxx EDIT

100% Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2018) She also claps back against the idols of her early life, men like Louis C.K. who've now become the problem. In other words, Gadsby's not holding any punches with this one. - Uproxx EDIT

No Score Yet Demetri Martin: The Overthinker (2018) As always, audiences can expect lots of one-liners, drawings, and music, albeit with a new narrative flair. - Uproxx EDIT

80% Katt Williams: Great America (2018) The opening 12 minutes is especially considerable. - Uproxx EDIT

1/5 10% Holmes and Watson (2018) Sony knew what would happen when this hit theaters. No word of mouth campaign, whether organic or engineered, was ever going to pop up to influence audiences for this lackluster comedy. - Den of Geek EDIT

4/5 93% Stan & Ollie (2019) The performances help make Stan & Ollie seem far better than it really has any right to be. - Den of Geek EDIT

82% W. Kamau Bell: Private School Negro (2018) Offers a wonderful mix of sociopolitical commentary and everyday humor, thereby presenting something for everyone. - Uproxx EDIT

100% John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City (2018) In this new stand-up, Mulaney eviscerates pretty much everything (school assemblies, aging, manners, church) with his patented good-humored charm... In other words, Mulaney's at his best here - Uproxx EDIT

4/5 58% The Grinch (2018) The Grinch is an enjoyable and refreshingly unique Yuletide film in theaters crowded by Christmas movies. - Den of Geek EDIT

89% Adam Sandler: 100% Fresh (2018) Thankfully, his first comedy special in decades, 100% Fresh, is a refreshingly great bit of entertainment, especially for anyone who has been a fan of the musically-inclined performer since the '90s. - Uproxx EDIT

1/5 13% Life Itself (2018) Fogelman's latest is just another example of what his popular television drama has been for two seasons (and will be for its upcoming third). That is to say a commercially viable form of tragedy porn. - Den of Geek EDIT

100% Drew Michael (2018) As disorienting as Drew Michael may be, it may also help teach audiences more about themselves -- their tastes in comedy, television and art -- than previously known. - Forbes EDIT

2.5/5 48% Like Father (2018) Kelsey Grammer tries to save Kristen Bell from herself (and himself) in a dramedy about fairly terrible people you probably won't like. - Den of Geek EDIT

No Score Yet Just Another Immigrant: Romesh at the Greek (2018) Romesh at the Greek is here to deliver on the good faith it initially gave Showtime subscribers who have been tuning in since early June. And deliver it does... - Forbes EDIT

2/5 51% Equalizer 2 (2018) For a film whose hero prides himself on "equalizing" the playing field for those who cannot defend themselves, The Equalizer 2 is incredibly uneven. - Den of Geek EDIT

100% Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife (2018) Hard Knock Wife presents viewers with a rather startling image: a very pregnant woman performing a very active hour of stand-up comedy. Wong doesn't sit still, let alone sit, at any point during the performance. - Forbes EDIT

100% Tig Notaro: Happy to Be Here (2018) Even the surprise concert teased at the very end, and the many back-and-forth gesticulations Notaro goes through to push her audience to the edge, is ripe with plenty of funny, happy moments. - Forbes EDIT

100% Chris Rock: Tamborine (2018) Tamborine is as intimate as it is ridiculous, and although the content of Rock's material drives this home when it needs to, the special is always ready to assist him when necessary. - Uproxx EDIT

93% Jerry Before Seinfeld (2017) Jerry Before Seinfeld's structural banter doesn't quite hit the mark. It's almost as if Seinfeld couldn't decide exactly what he wanted this to be. These criticisms not withstanding, Jerry Before Seinfeld shines whenever it lets the comic be a comic. - Uproxx EDIT
