Great show for adults who love a good laugh!

Love it! It is a realistic relay of what a working mother has to do to juggle her self, career, and family and does not shy away from the realistic demands of life that leaves obstacles in the way. And do it with laughter. It is a great idea of a show and I won't miss it!

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

The show offers an entertaining chance to see what the everyday life of a stand up comedian is like. It also shows some of the challenges stand up comics face when trying to build their careers while raising a family.

There's lots of craziness, but in between it all are strong messages about the importance of family. It also serves as a reminder that humor can help cope with any situation.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
