100% Wanda Sykes: Not Normal (2019) American life felt pretty weird last spring when Wanda Sykes decided to call her latest Netflix special Not Normal. Now it is seriously far from normal. With that in mind, there's almost something reassuring about Sykes' comic takes...‐ The Daily Beast

100% Ramy Youssef: Feelings (2019) There's something oddly calming about watching him slowly deliver devastating jokes in front of a brightly-lit crowd in his debut special on HBO.‐ The Daily Beast

100% Gary Gulman: The Great Depresh (2019) For such a dark subject, it has no business being as hilarious as it is. Gulman is just that talented.‐ The Daily Beast

96% John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch (2019) OK, this one is more 1970s-style variety show than stand-up special, but it is delightful. ‐ The Daily Beast

No Score Yet Maria Bamford: Weakness is the Brand (2020) No, Maria Bamford probably isn't going to calm you down (she's dealing with her own mental health struggles). But her latest special is so consistently funny that you might just forget how freaked out you are.‐ The Daily Beast

71% Marc Maron: End Times Fun (2020) This special is not exactly comforting, but it is oddly prophetic and super dark in all the best ways.‐ The Daily Beast

91% Running with Beto (2019) Modigliani manages to create so much narrative tension that you start to wonder if this young, energetic, inspiring candidate might be able to pull it off in the end.‐ The Daily Beast

92% Ellen DeGeneres: Relatable (2018) As refreshing as it is to hear DeGeneres open up in a more nakedly honest way than we are used to seeing, she's at her purest comedically in the special when she returns to the type of observational humor that made her famous in the first place. ‐ The Daily Beast

100% Chris Rock: Tamborine (2018) While he may have been brought low as a husband and father, Rock's powers as a comedian have not been diminished.‐ The Daily Beast
