Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (1):

From the Jon Benet Ramsey murder to performing an illness-themed stand up routine to a group of cancer survivors, nothing is sacred as Jeselnik uses his unique brand of black comedy to find humor in situations that most folks wouldn't dare laugh at. Strange and/or inappropriate tweets and other aspects of popular culture are also a source of jokes, too.

No doubt that some viewers will find the conversations featured here highly disrespectful. Some folks won't appreciate the show's reliance on racial/ethnic stereotyping as a way of generating a chuckle, either. But for others, Jeselnik's unapologetic approach to sensitive issues will make the show worth watching.
