Review: Drew Michael (HBO)
I’d watched Drew Michael’s HBO special, interviewed him about it, and written a review for Decider before reading anyone else’s takes on it. And of course, I’d seen Drew perform stand-up multiple times in the past few years, too, so it’s not like his material itself wou... [Read More]

Review: Bert Kreischer, “Secret Time” (Netflix)
If you want to know a lot about Bert Kreischer, then listen to my podcast with him recorded live at Montreal’s Just For Laughs two summers ago. If you want to know why Bert performs shirtless, it’s mostly a party trick that became a habit, and now he’s simply more comfortable that ... [Read More]

This Is Me Now feels like a cash grab, and filming it in Britain makes feel even more so, as the setting allows him to talk about all of […... [Read More]

First impressions of New Faces 2018 at Just For Laughs Montreal
New Faces is decidedly different this year in Montreal. Perhaps it’s due to the Amazon Prime Video camera crews following the aspiring stand-up comedians around Just For Laughs. Yep. Mais bien sur. C’est vrai. C’est très certainement! Pardon my French. In recent years, I&rsq... [Read More]
