‘Arsenio Hall: Smart and Classy’ is stuck in the ‘90s
The late-night pioneer launches a limp comeback bid with a subpar Netflix special.

It's not terrible.
It's not Chappelle or Burr, but it's not the worst.

I went in with low expectations and I was surprised to actually chuckle a bit.

Come on Bruh, you’ve gotta give us a better gauge than that! So you saying Arsenio wasn’t one of the best ever? :lol:

Was it like Michael Jackson or Ray J?:roflmao:

Nah, I think that's the level what cats are judging it against.

Cats are expecting comedic genius, but instead get jokes about OJ and ugly feet.
The shit was aight...if you liked his show; you'll like the special....

Not looking for comedic genius, but was like watching Robert Townsend do comedy.

I was a fan of his show and him overall but this was really pretty bad for being of the times we in today.

Some of his jokes, he waited for the crowd reaction and it just wasn't there.

Some jokes he stayed too long on. Like trying to hammer in a point and it was long gone, move on man, next joke.

I'm not a technical comedic break down expert. But just saying things like delivery, wit and timing just wasn't there.

That Deon Cole stand up, maybe it spoiled me, cause that shit was funny as hell cause he was real.

Arsenio was cracking jokes mostly over and over about OJ and Cosby. Like really man? Really old news by now.

I did chuckle when he talked about social media with Twitter and IG. Some things I did chuckle at, but overall, was pretty dull.

But again, I'll wait for others opinions, just to know that it just wasn't me. And I didn't even look for that bad review article above. I was searching his age while watching the special and that's the first article that came up, I was like damn, it wasn't just me.

How did you get here? Nobody's supposed to be here

We loved Deon Cole's special because he was talking directly to us as Black men with timely, topical humor. Arsenio is a 63 year old man with "least common denominator" jokes - topics everyone knows that have no expiration date. Jokes that won't offend anybody and in theory everyone can understand and relate to that might equally give a chuckle to you and your church going grandma and your cracker assed cracker supervisor from work.

And the otherwise racist MAGA crew and the easily offended liberal snowflakes and the 60 year old casino player who only bought his $100 ticket because he vaguely remembers the Arsenio from 25 years ago. With this brand of comedy, Arsenio will easily sell out Caesars Palace, but the Uptown Comedy Corner crowd would quickly boo this act offstage. He's simply not "talking" to me... or you. And that's okay I guess. :dunno:

You're spot on Bruh. This is shit that could be readily dressed up to make the rounds of all the Late Shows. He had a number of chuckles here and there but it wasn't shit that anybody is gonna watch a second time and the size of the venue speaks volumes.

He probably got this special based on the buzz from production of the next "Coming To America."

Dem lotion boogers doe... :lol: :lol::lol:

I've been seeing that Deon Cole pushed at me and I didn't bite because I was expecting what Arsenio brought. I'll have to go and check it out.

Yep, you were right, it's not as smart and classy as it could have been. I'm still a fan tho' so I gave it a stream.
