I’ve been on a Stand-Up Comedy binge on Netflix lately and I can’t get enough. If I had the guts to actually do Stand-Up as a career, I would but I’m too much of a wuss. It’s one of my favorite things to watch and if you haven’t jumped on the Stand-Up train with me, I’m here to give you a few suggestions that I’ve watched on Netflix recently that had me rolling off my bed with laughter.
She has two specials on Netflix right now, War Paint and Freezing Hot. Most of her jokes seem to focus on the ridiculousness of women and what they do/think, but that’s enjoyable for all people. For instance, our Pinterest habits that no man should ever see, and her hilarious lamb noise when she re-enacts women speaking to each other, which is a little odd and off-putting at first but entirely accurate.
Her Netflix special, I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine) is a hilarious hour of aging to the point of having gray pubic hairs, talking to kids/not wanting kids, and being a cougar for an evening. She also tells an interesting story about a man at a bar ordering a drink and he didn’t know what a lemon or lime was. She had a few things to say about that.
What I love most about Trevor Noah is that he is a foreigner, reigning from the country of South Africa, and making his way over to the United States so that he can be labeled as black. He points out all of the things we Americans do that are utterly ridiculous, unintentionally racist, and downright stupid, and I applaud him for that. He has two bits on Netflix, African American and You Laugh But It’s True (which I haven’t seen yet). He even laughs at the Unicef commercials thinking they are images of Cleveland.
Anything by Bill Burr is fantastic. Feel free to watch all three specials on Netflix Let It Go, You People Are All The Same, and I’m Sorry You Feel That Way. He hails from Boston so he has that obnoxious accent where he talks about plastic surgery, adopting a dog from the SPCA, and the different levels of racism. He’s one of the greats.
If any of you have seen Bon Qui Qui in action, you’ll know who Anjelah Johnson is. She also does an impressive Vietnamese impersonation when getting her nails done which you can YouTube anytime. Her three specials on Netflix are Not Fancy, That’s How We Do It!, and Homecoming Show. She talks a lot about her lack of Mexican heritage, being newly married, and getting into cat fights (just look at the pic).
I never really watched Chelsea’s talk show, but her Netflix special Uganda Be Kidding Me was one to remember. She shares her trip to Africa with her friend by showing disturbing images that will be tattooed in your brain so please, watch with caution.
There are tons of other Stand-Up specials on Netflix like Aziz Ansari, Louis CK, and John Mulaney. Enjoy!
