In her second one-hour Comedy Central special, taped at the Barclay Theatre in Irvine, CA, Cummings shares brutally honest insights about love and relationships, covering everything from what real orgasms look like, to her frustration at men calling women “crazy.” In front of a packed audience, she dissects her recent breakup, her TV show, and the troubling voices in her head. This extended and uncensored version is sure to keep you laughing for days.
User Reviews: I like Whitney Cummings, she’s naturally funny in interviews and podcasts, and apparently had her fair share of issues to give her depth (ok, maybe white woman’s issues, I know, "boo hoo mental health" right, feel free to point out how other people have it worse, thank you for reminding us). Anyway, since ‘Money shot’, I look forward to her works.
"I love you" is a well timed machine, movement, gestures, poses and expressions, all flows naturally. The public can only respond. She talks a lot of gender roles, in a dialogue that is both equally directed to men and women, playing with stereotypes, or deconstructing them. At times it feels like she is ignoring the elephant in the room, but you got to realize that she put a lot of effort to keep things light without bringing up murder and rape into your evening. If you ever heard about the Fallon/Poehler "That’s not cute" anecdote, Cummings is not afraid to not look cute. She’ll go there and be as honest as it takes to show you her humanity.
Props for going back to stand-up after a long pause with a new hour and looking like you didn’t miss a beat.
