I can think of no better way to describe Stage Fright than as a secret, gentle, creamy treat for those who love and think deeply about clothing.

Stage Fright features plenty of the proudly feminist and wildly silly material that fans should expect, but as Slate reflects on her coming of age and ongoing struggles with love and happiness, she doesn't leave everything on stage.

What Stage Fright lacks in polish, it makes up for in effervescence and deeply confessional moments.

In spite of my reservations, though, the final leg of Slate's stand-up does feel like a sum that's doing its best to capitalize on all of the hour's many parts.

Where some textbook comedy specials fall flat because of over-rehearsed jokes or stiffness, Stage Fright succeeds because it oozes authenticity, thanks in part to a combination of Slate's overwhelming joy and a display of deep vulnerability

Stage Fright calls on us to treat ourselves with respect, even when it feels like our world (personal, political, environmental) is crashing down.
