Jen Kirkman: I'm Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine) Reviews

July 16, 2019
It's top-shelf humour for the thinking comedy fan, with genius observations about the modern condition.

It brilliantly spins all five (observational comedy, dating, relationships, weddings, divorce and the single life) into a beautiful bit of storytelling that's rife with one-liners and devoid of mere complaints.

The casual, conversational manner in which Kirkman delivers them is the perfect through-line for the material.

The subject matter itself isn't new territory, but Kirkman's clever insights and the willingness to say what most of us merely think offers a point of view that we can't help but respect and identify with.

She's a natural raconteur, and her show is a cleverly crafted and perfectly delivered monologue that feelsmore like a natural conversation with your funniest friend than a contrived comedy show.

Throughout I'm Gonna Die Alone, Kirkman manages to strike an incredible tone, which expresses her exasperation with divorce, aging, sex and relationships without ever really devolving into actual anger.

The end result is a nicely discursive hour-plus of standup, one that covers familiar topics but stands out due to material that sounds bitter without being embittered.

I've long admired Kirkman's comedy but this new special feels like a pretty healthy step forward for her.
