He's brought that genuineness to a format-the comedy special-that can be quite restrictive, transforming Career Suicide into something much more akin to an open, casual conversation with an old friend.
It's good because he is vulnerable and honest and funny and hopeful, a deft storyteller and living proof that there is light at the end of the tunnel - and that, sometimes, there's even light inside it, too.
Mr. Gethard's delivery often belies - thank goodness - the dark waters he swims through.
Career Suicide is suffused with that spirit, a display of Gethard's deft ability to balance confessional honesty with a keen nose for the absurd.
[Chris] Gethard's show succeeds as comedy and as confessional theater, complete with stellar impressions of Morrissey, but let's not discount its power as a model of behavior.
Career Suicide does feel a bit long, but it's clear Gethard wanted to take his time. He gets people to laugh at the fact that sometimes people break, and there's always a way to put yourself back together.
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.
It's this heady mix of vulnerability and self-aware wit that defines Career Suicide, making it mesmerizing and heartwarming.
