Iliza Shlesinger: Hot Forever
Iliza Shlesinger drops her sixth Netflix special with a message for guys who can’t get a girl. This is her respond to the mass-shooting tragedies, in which the guys who murdered women because they couldn’t get sex: “It is so easy to get a girl. All you gotta do is show up. Just be good at something.” She is talking about a passion, even something dumb like fishing. I wholeheartedly concur with her because there were times in my life I thought I couldn’t get a girl and I would be alone for the rest of my life. Then I found the love of my life because I had a passion for reading, which she thought might rub off on our kids.
In the beginning of her special, I find her acting a bit too much, but her writing eventually wins me over. Shlesinger is a brilliant comic and she uses her microphone to voice women issues, including abortion. Of all of her Netflix specials, this one is definitely her most personal, in which she talks about her husband, kid, and miscarriage. I have nothing but respect.
