Michael Che is more than Weekend Update
24 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

Michael Che mines territory that is a faint 2010s echo of the late great Lenny Bruce. No, Michael Che is not Lenny Bruce, but he gets a lot of mileage out of making people uncomfortable when they want to laugh at something that is funny but crosses a line they've made for themselves.

The other review of this show must not have a special ax to grind with Che, because gun control occupies a short segment, that going into statistics misses the whole point of humor--making us laugh at things that are uncomfortable or painful. Overall, Che does a pretty good job of this.

I'd give this more stars if there weren't a couple of points where the pacing dragged. And I'd give it fewer stars if this were a fair rating system. I know though, that 8 is the new "average," and if it isn't at least an 8 or a 9, people won't watch this, and it really is a pretty damn funny hour of stand up.

For those used to Che as the anchor on Weekend Update or his brief turn on the Daily Show, this is Michael Che Unplugged. He's more raw, more raunchy, and he works slightly blue, but not to the exclusion of intelligent humor. He uses "blue" to good effect, keeping the audience in Brooklyn and the audience at home a little off balance.
