Although his latest Netflix special "Kid Gorgeous at Radio City Hall" is incisive and amusing, this earlier routine by John Mulaney is stronger and much funnier. Here, there are a number of laugh-out-loud moments, in particular discussing the highs and lows of adulthood like mortgages and real estate, all delivered by Mulaney in a charming, boyish manner with effective timing. It all leads to an extended story involving his mother and Bill Clinton that gives the special its name, and ends the show on a terrific note. It's also particularly interesting how director Rhys Thomas manages to stamp the show with a visual identity and smooth calculated camerawork, using light touches and subtle flourishes without distracting from the main show.
