Neal Brennan: Here We Go

This half-hour Netflix special is part of the “Comedians of the World.” There are four parts of this series, but I skipped the rest and only watched Neal Brennan. Unlike his full-hour special 3 Mics, Here We Go takes on a more popular topics such as Trump, #MeToo, and pornography. Of course, Brennan puts his own spins on them. His writing is still on point even though the subjects are sensitive.

Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias: One Show Fits All

Unlike his weight, Fluffy’s jokes are light. His subjects include his son, his mother, and his celebrity status. He’s famous. I get it, but it becomes a bit of a brag. The car effects also get annoying. It’s a family-friendly comedy even though he said “shit” once.

Sebastian Maniscalco: Stay Hungry

Maniscalco’s latest Netflix’s special revolves around family materials, which include his Italian parents, his Jewish wife, and the birth of his newborn baby. Unfortunately, the content is quite shallow and he was acting too much. For a grown-ass man, his clowning is a bit silly. Not my cup of tea.

Crazy Rich Asians

Finally had a chance to catch up this hyped Asian big picture while vacationing. Unfortunately, it is just a forgettable romantic comedy. The storyline is predictable. The cast is decent. Other than the extravaganza lifestyle, I am not feeling it.

Ellen DeGeneres: Relatable

After 15 years, Ellen returns to the stage for a Netflix stand-up special. She is calm, confidence, and satirically relatable. From poor to celebrity, Christian Scientist to coming out, drugs to words, she covers everyday life with her own perspective. As a good storyteller and dancer, Ellen makes her special light and entertaining.

Trevor Noah: Son of Patricia

In his latest special for Netflix, Trevor talks about snake, tacos, Trump, and racism. His jokes seem a bit exaggerated. I am not quite feeling him. It’s enjoyable but not outstanding.

Narcos: Mexico

Season four of the drug drama lays out the extreme corruption of the Mexico government. Félix Gallardo (played by the charismatic Diego Luna) built his trafficking empire by funding the entire government. He got rich and comfortable on smuggling weed, but got greedy and expanded into cocaine. And that’s when it all came crashing down. The story is good the cast is fine, but not stellar. Teresa Ruiz is so damn hot though. This season isn’t quite as suspensful as the previous one—I miss Alberto Ammann the most. It looks like more seasons in the Mexico to come though.

Hip-Hop Evolution

I am enjoying Netflix’s documentary of hip-hop. From gangster rap to New York lyricist, the series brought back so much memories. Watching it makes me feel good to be growing in the evolution of rap music. Hip-hop was part of my life. Now I cannot keep up with the new rap. I am official an old-school hip-hop fan.

The Degenerates

The six Netflix’s half-hour specials are crude as fuck. Big Jay Oakerson confessed about seeing his fourteen-year-old daughter’s bush. Brad Williams went all in on being a midget. Yamaneikia Sauders held nothing back on sex. Liza Treyger broke down the different between real sex and porn. Joey Diaz admitted he’s a fucking degenerate. Christina P. channeled her craziness so brilliantly. Solid season for comedy lovers.

Joe Rogan: Strange Times

In his latest Netflix special, Rogan puts his own spin on the #MeToo moment. The things he said about women would be sexist in the real world, but he got a pass in his stand-up. It is a dangerous line to cross and only a good comedian would walk down that path. Rogan is brilliant.
