  • Growing is a restatement of what Schumer does best: there are no new directions, but it proves that even on the precipice of motherhood, she is still the daddy of carnal standup.

  • Schumer's knee-jerk overshare here aspires to more than the quick, gross-out response. But her exhibitionism does not amount to real confession.

  • Schumer's openness on the topic of autism, like her candor discussing menstruation and settling down in her 30s, is new territory for her and disarming for her fans. These aren't sex jokes; they're better.

  • Mostly solid material that yokes the old Schumer with the new.

  • 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.

  • She's still thoroughly filthy here, but her recent marriage and pregnancy, and the notion that men are having a difficult time now, provide fine inspiration.
