Emmy-winning comedian Dana Carvey blends pitch-perfect takes on so-true-it-hurts stories from his life as a dad of millenials. Add in teenagers, chinese factory workers, and hitler; this is one "SNL" star you can count on to make a good impression.Written by
Starting with possible one of the worst cold opens I've ever seen in a standup show, Dana Carvey launches directly into impressions of political figures. While he did at least ridicule all sides of the political spectrum in equal measure, he very much played the "here's what you want to hear" card.
Impression comedy can be great in small doses, but a standup routine so littered with them, especially when they're bad, can be painful to watch. His transitions between bits bordered on the quality of his open. It seems he just wrote a list of a dozen people he can do a mediocre impression of and went through them in sequence with no adjoining material.
The general sentiment from other reviewers seems to be that Dana has other strong material, and this was just one of his bad days. In that case, you may find it worth a watch. But if this is your first time encountering Dana, I'd recommend avoiding this special.
