Ricky Gervais: SuperNature

In his latest Netflix Special, SuperNature, Ricky Gervais pushes some hot buttons. In claiming inclusivity, he mocks obesity, Chinaman, and transgender. The trans community has already spoken up about the transphobic issue. The fat-shaming and racist jokes are equally offensive, but no one has spoken up. Gervais knows damn well he can get away with these three minority groups. The bloke is a damn good comedian, but he understands his limitations. In his next special, I dare him to take on Black Americans and see if he can get away with the N-word joke. If he stays true to his words as a comic, he shouldn’t have a problem with it. Until he could make fun of every group, he is not as inclusive as he has claimed. He only picks and chooses his targets.

Katt Williams: World War III

As the title suggests, Katt Williams discusses the war on disinformation. He breaks down the lies and the truths. He knows the truths are sometimes ugly and painful; therefore, he uses comedy to tell the truths. He was onto something until he spent half of his Netflix Special analyzing the pussy. Apparently, he is very passionate about the pussy and he isn’t shy away from sharing the types he liked. That’s Katt. He is still disgusting and charismatic as fuck.

Christina Pazsitzky: Mom Genes

Christina P. is married to Tom Segura whose comic is dark. She has a wicked sense of humor herself. In her latest Netflix special, Mom Genes, she joked about her family, which included her father, husband, and sons, without a dull moment. She revealed that her 75-year-old father remarried for the fifth time to a 34-year-old Vietnamese lady who he met online. Their marriage was based on a mutual exchange: she wanted a green card and he wanted free mani-pedi. Being married to a regular guy, she knows how to make him happy. He just needs three things: sandwich, sports, and sex. The first two were easy, but the last one she just felt like giving up. She talked about the last item with a gag, “After spending a day with my three- and six-year-old boys, I am dryer than Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s pussy. She is dead and that is a dusty puss.” She knew how a marriage worked so she just had to do her part. Christina P. is a brilliant comic. She not only uses her words, but also her facial features to let us know that she was only making jokes. That was how she got away with mocking Vietnamese accent and the word “detard.”

Taylor Tomlinson: Look at You

In her latest Netflix Special, Tomlinson shares the loss of her mother when she was eight, the struggle with her mental health, and the challenge of her religious upbringing. Tomlinson definitely has a dark sense of humor because she believes “if you can laugh at the darkest stuff that’s ever happened to you while it’s still actively happening to you, sometimes that’s what help get you through it.” Tomlinson is a fantastic writer. Her materials are thoughtful and her delivery is on the beat. I highly recommend streaming it.

Ali Wong: Don Wong

Ali Wong’s third Netflix Special dropped on Valentine’s Day, but don’t expect any romantic materials from the foul-mouthed comedian who walks the fine line between vulgarity and authenticity. She defends feminism (money, power, and respect) and talks about taking cum on her face at the same time. How does it feel to cum on the face of a millionaire? She explains, “Sure, you’ve gotten head, but have you ejaculated onto a great American mind? Has your sperm swam in the eyes of an icon? Have you been deep-throated by a voice of a generation?” She is so damn nasty and yet brilliant. Success in the standup world is when you get high paid for talking shit. Ali Wong is full of shit and she knows it and capitalizes on it. Her writing is still sharp, witty, and punchy; therefore, her latest special is worth streaming.

Ms. Pat: Y’all Wanna Hear Something Crazy?

Ms. Pat has a wicked sense of humor. In her Netflix Special, she shares her personal matters including being pregnant at thirteen, her crippled uncle, and her gay daughter. If truths were told, she had been through a lot in her life. Comedy is her way out of the darkness. She gives us an invaluable advise: “Learn how to take the darkest shit in your life and turn that shit into laughter. ‘Cause when you can laugh at it, that means you got control of it.” Watch her show with an open mind and you’ll enjoy it like I did.

Aziz Ansari: Nightclub Comedian

A half-hour special in which Ansari returned to the Comedy Cellar to drop a few jokes about vaccinations, politics, and digital diets. He showed empathy for the anti-vaxxer who received misinformation, talked a bit about Trump and his content, and returned to using a flip phone. Though the special was enjoyable, I wish it was longer.

Nicole Byer: BBW

Byer is indeed a Big Beautiful Weirdo and she is damn proud of it. Nn her latest Netflix Special, she didn’t shy from revealing her sexual appetite, her perspective on Black Lives Matter, and her jokes on white women. She also shared her own drinking, eating, shitting, crying, and singing in an airport’s bathroom. She makes you wish that you have the same shameless confidence that she has.

Jim Gaffigan: Comedy Monster

Gaffigan’s Comedy Monster is a light-weight material filled with self-mockery such as ugly and fat jokes. I didn’t get to see his acting on stage because I was listening to his special while driving to work. These days, I just downloaded Netflix Comedy Special on my phone to listen during my commute. It helps getting to work faster and more pleasant. This one is not so bad.

Jimmy Carr: His Dark Material

In the opening of his latest Netflix special, Jimmy Carr warned that his jokes may contain terrible things. For example, joking about rape is not the same as doing the rape. His material followed the one-liner format. He roasted his audience members and even encouraged them to hackle him. His responses were quick and on point. From conspiracy on COVID to vaccine, he was harsh but hilarious. I appreciate a comedian who is an excellent writer.
