So I’ve known of Arsenio Hall since way back when. Interestingly, I’ve never seen him do any stand up. I used to watch the Arsenio Hall show back in the days and on occasion I still watch show clips on Youtube. Most recently I watched him interview one of my favorites wrestlers, the Ultimate Warrior. I also recently came across a clip of him engaged in a debate with some gay folks from the audience who accused him of not having enough gay people on his show.
However, I never saw any of his stand up set. This would be my first time. Honestly, I was just going to skip this and watch something else as I wasn’t sure it was going to be worth my time. Wow, was I ever wrong!
Let me tell you guys, of all the dozens of new Netflix stand up specials that have been released, this is one of the funniest ones I’ve seen yet. I am so glad that I didn’t skip by it since I’ve never seen Arsenio’s stand up before. This special made me giggle and actually laugh out loud quite a few times. He wasn’t overly raunchy or nasty with it, but he did touch on some heavy topics. One of the funniest things he said was… Nah, just kidding, I’m not going to put any spoilers, go watch it, it’s funny AF!
Do yourself a favor, if you like comedy, sit and watch this special. I’m glad I did and I will watch it again. This is now on my top 3 Netflix comedian specials.
