This special is short, but does not disappoint. The live show is taped at New York's Comedy Cellar, where he did his first stand-up ever 20 years ago as a student at NYU.

He's on the money when he says of the current moment, "Everything is a little bit shittier" and "we just live in the comments threads now".
