When rating comedy I watch, I ask if I had paid to see this, would I want my money back?
In this instance, I probably wouldn't want my money back, unless it was over $75 (but that's arbitrary).
I used to think Howie Mandel was one of the funniest men alive. His comedy is very accessible because he continues to talk about people and behaviors that nearly all can relate to personally. His germ phobia reminds me of my OCD ex. One of the stories was pretty funny.
About twenty minutes was devoted to pretty graphic material regarding sexual practices for the sole practitioner, which I seriously could have done without. I would be embarrassed if I were on a date with someone I didn't know well. For me, the rest of it was better than most comedic presentations.
I do agree with some of the critiques among the one star reviews. He primarily appeals to the over 40 crowd and there is nothing about current day novelties, but for me, I don't need to hear about cellphone courtesy or weird roommates. Additionally it kept my attention. I watched it all in one sitting, which is more than I can say for most comedy shows on this platform.
I definitely laughed throughout it but nothing memorable happened. In a few days, I probably will still think it was good but won't remember punchlines.
