8.5/10 No Score Yet Demetri Martin: The Overthinker (2018) We're getting to see Martin's take on a more traditional stand-up set, but even then he filters that through his strange, observational prism that finds details two degrees off from what you were expecting.‐ Paste Magazine

3/10 No Score Yet Bert Kreischer: Secret Time (2018) The special suffers from feeling like it wants to be on campus.‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 60% Iliza: Elder Millennial (2018) What I like about this special above all is that everything is just two degrees off from what you're expecting. ‐ Paste Magazine

9.0 100% Flight of the Conchords: Live in London (2018) They don't want to pretend it's 2009, and you wouldn't want them to either.‐ Paste Magazine

80% Katt Williams: Great America (2018) This is a man who once retired from stand-up only to mount a comeback three days later. He reliably keeps you on your toes, and many, many, many people can attest to it.‐ Paste Magazine

9/10 100% Drew Michael (2018) A tense and stressful comedy special to watch, though it is definitely a comedy special, and is frequently hilarious. The context does sometimes make you feel insane for laughing out loud, though.‐ Paste Magazine

8.5/10 82% W. Kamau Bell: Private School Negro (2018) Gives off a town hall impression, and Bell effectively leads one. He wears his status as a voice-of-reason comedian like a loose shirt, presenting plenty of ideas that earn applause breaks but not without playfully undercutting them. ‐ Paste Magazine

100% Jim Gaffigan: Noble Ape (2018) Noble Ape feels, and I don't mean this as a reference to Gaffigan's food material, like a full meal. Or at least, several different small, meatier courses.‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 88% Adam Sandler: 100% Fresh (2018) If 100% Fresh doesn't give you the kind of laughs you like, it will at the very least provide that perspective.‐ Paste Magazine

No Score Yet Jim Jeffries: This Is Me Now (2018) Its inherently condescending to act like this is our first time through the whole "but actually, this joke is about this" merry-go-round.‐ Paste Magazine

9/10 100% Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2018) It is an extremely angry hour, an extremely cathartic one and an extremely necessary one. An art form cannot thrive if it refuses to look itself in the face and question its own necessity.‐ Paste Magazine

8.5/10 100% Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife (2018) Hard Knock Wife is incredibly funny, building on Wong's uncompromising statement with a wealth of observational specificity and reliable bite.‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 No Score Yet Tom Segura: Disgraceful (2018) The guy knows how to spin a yarn, neatly inhabiting the part of an everyman swept up into situations beyond his control. ‐ Paste Magazine

10/10 100% Chris Gethard: Career Suicide (2017) But what separates Gethard from the rest of his class is his uncanny ability to pull off moments of pathos without a shred of ironic detachment. ‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 No Score Yet Judd Apatow: The Return (2017) ... yet, by the end of the special, he does somehow position himself (one of the highest-status men in the country) as the lovable low-status pal we'd like him to be.‐ Paste Magazine

9/10 100% Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady (2017) Nice Lady is an exhilarating exercise in sledding downhill from atop the elephant in the room.‐ Paste Magazine

8.5/10 89% The Problem with Apu (2017) [Hari] Kondabolu is a patient and deliberate interviewer, pushing and pulling back in equal measure, bringing out moments of real vulnerability in some subjects and allowing others to wrap themselves in the contradictions of their own arguments.‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 43% Girlfriend's Day (2017) By the time it's all over, you're left with the same giddiness you feel after reading a Daniel Clowes comic or a Jonathan Ames story‐ Paste Magazine
