I was really expecting to like it more. I love Seth Rogan. Pretty much all the movies he has been in were great. And it had so many big names in it. But it ended up not being all that funny.
The stand ups were good for the most part. I liked that they weren't too political. These days we get too much comedy on that topic so I am always happy to see stand ups with other kind of jokes. I especially liked Micahel Che, Sarah Silverman (I am impressed how she even put in a joke relating the topic of the charity) and Tiffany Haddish. John Mulaney was also good but I didn't laugh too much with him. Michelle Wolfe pretty much sucked.
The problem though is that stand ups were very short. And all the sketches in between were not funny at all. It seemed like they were just improvised and nobody bothered to edit them to make them funny. Even the ones including Sacha Barone Cohen and Jeff Goldblum left me unimpressed.
Still it is a great cause. I am glad they added some information on Alzheimer's to it. Hope more people will donate because it is one of the scariest things one can expect in old age.
