I watched it through to the end. I didn't think it was as bad as others have said. I laughed at the "My daughter's a ho" joke, even though I knew the punchline from reading the reviews. I chuckled at the 40+ group chat bit, but I laughed out loud at the part about his spoiled kids spending time with his ex-wife (Checkmate, bitch!). What's funny is that I've seen his ex do stand-up as well and she's said the same thing about those kids plus she's still bitter as fuck that he blew up once they broke up. When he said that joke is gonna cost him, he's dead serious.

Overall was it the best stand up ever, hell no, but it certainly wasn't the worst either -- that honor goes to Nick Cannon.

I've honestly never found his stand up to be funny:dunno:

I find him funny overall especially in interviews qnd things of that nature but I've felt the way you're feeling now when watching all of his specials.
He's a funny dude, but the "I'm small" schtick wears off rather quickly.

I get kinda irritated when people use the word “Safe” when referring to his comedy. The man talked about his kids catching him fucking, spitting on his wife after watching porn, giving his wife good dick once a month women who suck dick at 7am.

Just because he’s not talking about “The Man”, that doesn’t make his comedy “Safe”. I didn’t watch all of his standups in the past but ain’t he talking about the same shit he always did?

If so, I never heard anyone label him “Safe” back then? :confused:
Safe is him not ruffling and feathers with some of his culprit sponsors or making Jews mad.. talking about your kids is ok talking about black injustice is not

plot twist: he never was funny.

it just took you this long to figure it out

its a certain rhythm to comedy, a cadence, knowing when to cut the joke and when to bring it back.

Kev gets on a joke and flogs it to death because he dont know how to command the crowd.

Kev shit is mechanical, its paint by numbers.

Kevin is socially funny. Put him in a room engaging with folk, he IS funny. His sillyness and comebacks will generate laughs. If he was part of your crew, cracking jokes, he'd be hilarious. His personality comes through in those scenarios. That's why his tv shows and movies are funny. His scene with Romany in the 40 year old virgin will ALWAYS be funny.

On his own, telling jokes, he is not as strong. I will say 2-3 out of his seven specials were pretty good. This one was a miss.
He has to gst some new material and find some better writers . hes been joking about bis family for 10 years

I think because of his popularity, he feels he can't touch on certain shit. Chappelle can do it because he's reached the highest heights and is untouchable. A young unknown comedian can because he doesn't have the family friendly movie audience to cater to as well.

That Nick Cannon shit was hoooooot gabbige. Dan Soder and Jay Oakerson were clowning how predictable it was.

You’re gonna make me go watch a couple of minutes of it to see! :lol:



His peers say the same thing.
When comedians analyze other comedians, it's purely from a technical standpoint. His material is just being loud and being obnoxiously stereotypically black. When white people saying "acting black" this is what they think we all talk and behave like. I had to speak proper in the house because both of my parents valued education. I remember that day is said "X friend's moms said we could stay over", and I had to do homemade English grammar homework because my friend didn't have two mothers, nor did I show a possessive. My dad jokingly calls my mom, "The Warden" after the Turkish prison CO from Midnight Express.

The comedians were right about Nick’s special, I watched the first 30 minutes and it was loud, stereotypical and he was trying too hard.

I won’t be watching the rest.

I watched it and it's straight. KH was telling the truth when he said he got nothing else but his family. He pointed out he been doing comedy for 16yrs and if you been paying attention, it's always been about where he was at in life. I mean, after 16yrs who can sustain the same energy and mystery for jokes. The problem is, you go into it, already with two expectations. One is that you have already heard his comedy and knows where his comes from and where he is like to go and two, you want him to tell jokes about things & situations that he can't possibly be about. Is like a jay z dropping new albums talking about the hustle, trap houses and bitches when you know he's a famous dad, married to a superstar and ain't no where near them streets. If your not laughing its because KH material is familiar in that you find him familiar, so your expectations of something new is not likely to be rewarded. I personally laugh a few times and appreciated the space he's in right now. Like he said, family is all he got. And for those on the short bus, when KH said, he and his family fly private jets all the time, you already know, is struggle ain't as real as it used to be.
