Louis CK was once describing how Chris Rock will drill a certain premise into the audiences' heads. He will, literally, repeat the idea over and over:
"Women can’t go down in lifestyle.
They can’t go down in lifestyle."
It almost looks like song lyrics.
Aziz does the same thing:
"No guy here has any story like that.
No guy here has any story like that.
Every woman in here has at least 3 stories like that. I guarantee you."
By the time he got to "I guarantee you." the crowd was exploding with laughter.
The special is smart, personal, beautiful, and most importantly, hilarious. Sometimes when a comic makes a special that is especially personal, it tends to be a little less funny. He sacrificed nothing with his newest hour of material.
The special is on Netflix and it's definitely worth your time.
