Movie Info

Kevin James, one of the most successful stand-up artists and comic actors of today, returns for his first stand-up comedy special in 17 years, Kevin James: Never Don't Give Up, streaming globally on Netflix Tuesday, April 24. Using his signature comedic timing and hilarious observations that successfully highlight the absurdity in everyday situations, James touches upon a myriad topics including awkward fan photos, how encores in the entertainment industry are insincere, annoying food allergies and the unique abilities (or lack thereof) that his children possess.

  • Most of this is built around the same low-hanging, moldy observations your uncle had last Thanksgiving, but it's elevated ever so slightly by the occasional, more physical bits of James' set.

  • Amusing, fast, inoffensive -- for the most part.

  • I certainly don't think you shouldn't make a special just because it's been seventeen years since you've done that. But if it feels like your special could have been released during any one of those interim years, that might be an issue.

  • Overall, the special is mostly benign, flaccid comedy that probably would have felt a little more at home in 1995.
