An Average Kevin Smith stand up show, no Jason...
Kevin Smith has been doing these types of shows for a long time now and they can vary in quality. His early stand up shows are probably his best and involve the crowd which is something which is missing in this one. Also his sidekick Jason is also not part of this show, what we now have is a slicker one man show of Kevin telling funny stories as opposed to stand up comedy.
Gone also are the worldly observations, most of the material is focused on his family so gone are the days of drugs stories.
The USP of this show is that he had a heart attack right after the show, this is not a spoiler its how its being advertised, hence the pic of him in a gurney, no spoilers either to say he survived...
What is unusual about this is that he has never looked healthier after dropping so much weight, well done Kev.
While he is not as edgy as he has been in the past this was still a satisfying watch as its as much his personality that people watch his shows as much as the stories or jokes.
I wouldn't rate this as high as his earlier material but its certainly not his worst and this show is still worth a watch if you haven't caught up with him a while.
