I never knew I needed autistic humour so much. Thanks to Bondo for introducing me to Jim Jefferies.

I will note though, on a less enthusiastic note, that his was not the first stand up special where I have seen a dark comedian (as I am sure they are called) do a bit about how dark humour is not a horrible thing and the PC crowd who goes around vilifying as got it wrong on a scale that suggests their stick up their arse has reached their brains and done some damage. I cannot but be disgusted at the people who equivocate humour with actually condoning the practices it makes light of.

James Acaster on Netflix. Some of the best Stand Up I've seen. And somehow there's 4 hours worth all at once? I've only watched the first couple "episodes" but I'm having a great time.



On another topic, what are peoples' favourite episodes of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee?

I think my absolute favorite is Carl Reiner/Mel Brooks. Such a sort of wonderful/hilarious story those two have together. Also really liked Steve Harvey, Trevor Noah and Aziz Ansari.

I did like Norm MacDonald too, I will second that one. Nothing rivals Jerry taking Christoph Waltz to IHOP (though overall it's not the funniest).

I would have to say that Fred Armisen is the biggest dud I've seen. Just have a few more left to watch myself.

That would probably be my favourite. :))

I love all the others mentioned too of course.

Adam Sandler: 100% Fresh

While in the film world it is generally the case that I grew up and Adam Sandler didn't, I found this a pretty refreshing set. It is definitely spotty and still distinctly juvenile, but it is extremely good-natured. These jokes are not at anyone's expense (except Sandler himself at times), they are just goofy fun. And it gets a bit dusty at the end. Definitely worth the time.
