Didn't see it yet but apparently he talks and supports marxism in this which seems surprising for a netflix special.

I gave Bo Burnham: Inside a try, had to do it in several sittings as I simply couldn't stand watching 90 minutes of it in one go. Two things that majorly annoyed me:

1/ Comedians doing songs but not putting any effort into the music, hoping they'll get by with funny lyrics alone. This show is all music and it's simply terrible.
2/ Social commentary that is way too obvious and obligatory, reiterating topics that have been made fun of so much already.

I didn't laugh once. Not a single joke landed. It's baffling how he put so many effort into creating something that is so extremely lazy and banal. So far I got through this COVID deal pretty well, this made me fear post-COVID is going to be terrible.

As I've made abundantly clear on this forum, I'm trans. Despite the backlash from others in LGBTQ+ community, I think the new Dave Chappelle special is genius. The Daphne story broke me. Some of his best work.

Nice, I thought it was some of his best work too, and I also teared up at the end of that story.

I just watched the new Chappelle special myself. I think some of his earlier Netflix specials in this “series” were stronger/funnier, but it was still solid work from a master. Hopefully his period of stepping away from doing specials isn’t TOO long.

Louis CK’s new special “Sorry” was really damn funny.

Within five minutes of finding out it existed, I had purchased it, downloaded it, uploaded it to Plex and clicked play. One of the funniest specials I've ever seen. Louis is the GOAT, and I think he still has that level of reputation among people who actually value comedy.

One final, posthumous Norm MacDonald stand-up special will be on Netflix on May 30! Apparently it’s something he filmed by himself at home during the earlier months of COVID.
