Todd Glass is a comedian whose name is suspended marginally, and maybe not even on a conscious level, above the wash of total media input experienced over the last 37 years of existence. He's a talent from the early 2000's, maybe even the 90's; a youtube video from the past, or maybe a special you saw that one time late at night on old school comedy central. In short, he's an answer to a trivia question you wouldn't be able to actively recall if your life depended on it.

Well, let me tell you, this special is his magnum opus. Undeniably funny, truly laugh out loud funny to a man who doesn't find too much funny these days. His delivery here is completely transformed; it's like a free thinking exercise. Erratic and constant, coherent narrative peppered with fragmented thoughts on passing interests and observations, all done while simultaneously piloting a backing band like he's Sinatra on the Las Vegas strip. Cool and in control.

It's a masterclass on comedic writing and performance. There are even insightful moments, messages I found truly touching, expressed in such a genuine way to the audience, and then BAM! back to the material, the people are here for the jokes. We got jokes for you ladies and gentlemen! Despite concealment by a very loose and freewheeling delivery, it's still clear that this is meticulously hand-crafted fruit from a lifetime's work as an on-the-road, blood, sweat, and tears, comedian. I wish him all the best luck and look forward to his future work.
