Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
No Score Yet Bert Kreischer: Secret Time (2018) Equal parts storytelling superhero and affable oaf, he describes his new hour of stand-up simply: "We're just getting drunk and telling secrets."‐ Decider

No Score Yet Drew Michael (2018) Like most men in stand-up comedy, Michael dwells on his problems finding and nurturing a lasting relationship. But Michael is not most men, nor most comedians.‐ Decider

No Score Yet Jim Jeffries: This Is Me Now (2018) Names are dropped. Tales are told. Jefferies elicits multiple laughs impersonating Al Pacino describing Jefferies's act back to the comedian. It's a great story.‐ Decider

100% Hannah Gadsby: Nanette (2018) A generation after Helen Reddy, Hannah Gadsby may not be your idea of a traditional woman. But she is still woman, and she is still human. Hear her roar.‐ Decider

100% Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife (2018) Hard Knock Wife serves as another battle cry to Wong's fellow mothers.‐ Decider

No Score Yet Tig Notaro: Happy to Be Here (2018) Regardless of whether you can guess the ending, the sheer joy and delight on Notaro's face in the end will tickle you as much as it does her.‐ Decider

83% Eddie Murphy Delirious (1983) From the opening montages, you're in for something special.‐ Decider

100% Chris Rock: Tamborine (2018) Rock now recognizes the importance of learning life lessons and accepting cold hard truths about himself... That's something some of his peers and those who look up to him in comedy would be wise to listen to and heed.‐ Decider

No Score Yet Def Comedy Jam 25 (2017) Don't call it a comeback.‐ Decider

No Score Yet Rodney Carrington: Here Comes The Truth (2017) Here comes more truth: Not all blue-collar comedians from south of the Mason-Dixon line are clean, family-friendly types.‐ Decider

100% Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady (2017) This is the moment audiences (particularly the men out there) are ready and willing to hear her message, and to hear it from her.‐ Decider

100% Maria Bamford: Old Baby (2017) Maria Bamford breaks the mold, and then creates her own. She is the Inhuman superhero of the comedy marvel universe.‐ Decider

No Score Yet Mike Birbiglia: Thank God for Jokes (2017) ... he's such an endearing storyteller that he has invited you into his world, and these have all become inside jokes we can laugh at and enjoy. Even the punny ones.‐ Decider

No Score Yet Marc Maron: Too Real (2017) ... Maron knows his fans want more, expect more now out of him.‐ Decider

100% Patton Oswalt: Annihilation (2017) Through Annihilation, Oswalt finds catharsis. As he remembers his late wife's philosophy and shares it with us: "It's chaos. Be kind."‐ Decider

No Score Yet Judah Friedlander: America is the Greatest Country in the United States (2017) ... give Friedlander a chance. Hear him out.‐ Decider

No Score Yet Chris D'Elia: Man On Fire (2017) ... when sitcoms and movies pay him to act, he's great at it. If only his stand-up reached similar heights.‐ Decider

No Score Yet Jerrod Carmichael: 8 (2017) Onstage by himself in a comedy club or a theater, Carmichael raises the questions without easy answers or sometimes any answers. Instead, he forces you to confront your own philosophy.‐ Decider

No Score Yet Martin Lawrence: Doin' Time: Uncut (2016) The joy of seeing Martin Lawrence again onstage, telling jokes, supersedes for his fans the content of his message.‐ Decider

No Score Yet Amy Schumer: The Leather Special (2017) The Leather Special is an aggressively sexual hour. No beating around the bush, so to speak, but rather, in your face.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2017
No Score Yet George Lopez: The Wall, Live from Washington D.C. (2017) When it comes to stand-up comedy, broadcasting a comedian's live performance comes closest to capturing the energy and magic of watching stand-up in person in a comedy club.‐ Decider

92% Louis C.K.: 2017 (2017) It's easily his most cohesive special in several years.‐ Decider
Read More | Posted Dec 19, 2017
No Score Yet Christina P: Mother Inferior (2017) What you see is what you get with Christina P. Her comedy is like her choice of outfit: Dark and black, perhaps, but she still has heart. In that sense, she won't be anyone's inferior mother.‐ Decider

93% Jerry Before Seinfeld (2017) But repackaged with a new narrative, those same jokes can hold up some 40 years later. Inside The Comic Strip, Jerry Seinfeld can be cool once more.‐ Decider
