Anjelah Johnson: Not Fancy

Ms. Johnson ends her latest NetFlix special, Not Fancy, with her mockery of Vietnamese accent at the nail salon. Her imitation is no longer offensive, it is just pure lazy. If she wanted to make fun of a foreign language, she at least should have learned it first or done some research. Her gibberish came off stupid, if not stereotypical, even though that was not her intention. Ms. Johnson is not the extreme type of comedian because most of her materials were lighthearted and she hardly used profanity. Not Fancy is an enjoyable PG entertainment if you can get past her somewhat irritating pitch.
