It's called "Nanette."  Quite the tour de force.  Still processing this to be honest.  https://variety.com/...edy-1202867395/

i'm really looking forward to watching her


“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

If you want to be up to speed around the water cooler, you have to watch this show.  If you don't, it's damned thought provoking and entertaining.

Must watch. Essential.

The first half, I'm thinking she's a very skillful comedian but why is everyone going crazy for this?

Then it turns a corner and there should be no spoilers.

Christ, just go watch the special.

Here's a provocative comparison of Gadsby's special with Maher's.  Looking a little pale there, Bill.
