First of all he's not funny, he has a funny voice. He hides his lack of talent between energetic boisterousness and curse words.
Secondly so u don't think I'm here to trash the guy he's not a bad actor in my estimation, he has solid timing and can show emotion. However, this special I will trash because it was trash and hbo needs to do better. The bar cannot be this low. I know YouTube's constant amateur parade has dumbed the audience down more than ever, but we all know what that is and hbo can't let a "comedian" ad lib (poorly) on stage and expect us to be okay with the high prices they charge.
While appreciate the efforts in getting other things on the air that are different and flop like the black lady sketches, and whatever gay/trans documentary came out last week - its gonna kill your audience if names are allowed to come in and tell lame jokes half the time and then laugh their way through the other half. Netflix is putting out some really good standup specials, do better hbo!
