100% Wanda Sykes: Not Normal (2019) As a whole, the special would be stronger if there were more sequences with that kind of multilayered thoughtfulness. But Not Normal has plenty of moments that stand out on their own, more than justifying the few bits that feel a little thin. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

No Score Yet Anthony Jeselnik: Fire in the Maternity Ward (2019) Then, just as you're about to rise up in fury, you realize that with sneakily self-immolating deftness, all of Jeselnik's most devastating hits land squarely on himself. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

77% Amy Schumer Growing (2019) Too often, though, Growing is an exercise in well-trodden territory. In spite of showing off her own skin, and in spite of how personal this special is, Schumer's revelations rarely get past the superficial. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

92% Ellen DeGeneres: Relatable (2018) It's goofy, and if there's an edge underneath DeGeneres's frustration with the complaint that she may no longer be relatable, it's buried deep. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT
