Critic Reviews for Drew Michael

  • The HBO show makes me think. It's inventive and cerebral, and insists that you ponder the mechanics of comedy, which is a valuable exercise. But it also leaves me asking... "Where's the funny in this?"

  • He hits emotional notes that stand-up rarely does, an impressive feat for a cerebral comic who, by his account, has trouble being vulnerable.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Drew Michael argues that the stand-up special can make us think, cry, fume with anger, disagree, and also, hopefully, laugh.

  • As disorienting as Drew Michael may be, it may also help teach audiences more about themselves -- their tastes in comedy, television and art -- than previously known.
