Michelle Wolf got my attention with her ability to find something ridiculous with just about anything she involves herself with. I admire her candor and her not backing down when she received criticism from some of the most powerful people in USA. The show is rife with great turns of phrases and witticisms. The only people that wouldn't get a chuckle from this show are those that find themselves offended by her no-holds-barred evaluations of society and people. Particularly within the political realm. Afterall, lets face it, the jokes about those people literally write themselves. I chose great messages, because she is willing to discuss the bad things that our own society does. However, as a parent, I wouldn't recommend the show for anyone under 16. I think at 16 they would at least have a handle on the choice words that Michelle Wolf uses quite readily. Trying to claim that a comedian is biased is like saying the sun is unfairly hot.
