| Maybe stand-up isn't her thing.
This special felt like something that was written in one day. The only thing that's good about the special is that it has structure to it unlike Chris D'elia or Brendan Schuab who has awkward transitions and goes off topic alot. However it lacks the most important aspect of comedy, creativity. These jokes are the kind of jokes you will hear in a middle school. There's no surprise element to her jokes at all, you could've guess half the punchlines. This is something I would have expected from an average joe, not a "professional".
