Can just anybody be a comedian nowadays?
30 March 2017 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is like a really unfunny, language lesson. 10 mins in and Jobrani is still doing his really unfunny bit about language quirks amongst people of colour. Bored senseless, I skipped 20 mins ahead and Jobrani is still flogging the dead horse of being raised by first gen immigrants. Skip forward another 10 mins and now Jobrani thinks it's funny to trot out 90s humour of enjoying Sex in the City because he'd been drinking soy milk that was high in oestrogen. Even worse, Jobrani can't do accents, but he tries them with alarming frequency. At this point I gave up, there's no way it was going to get better.
