From Phoenix, Arizona, Tom Segura fearlessly tackles almost anything from the very beginning, with highly risky jokes that, thanks to his charm and personality, manage to resonate with and win over the audience.
This time, Netflix presents us with a comedian who possesses daring and courageous humor, venturing far beyond family-friendly comedy into daring territory, all while avoiding vulgarity.
I’ll confess something: many stand-up comedians leave me somewhat unimpressed, as if they lack that daring risk-taking in their monologues, as if they were more interested in playing it safe than breaking boundaries. This hasn’t been the case with Tom Segura, who has successfully elicited bold laughter from me and prompted that incredible and almost obligatory question we should all ask ourselves when watching stand-up: how did he dare to say that?
A person who, as he tells us, has faced protests against his show in some places: we are glad for that and we celebrate it. A monologue that brings back the freshness of stand-up and shows us why this seemingly ordinary individual manages to captivate thousands of people around the world.
Enjoy it, because it truly is worth it.
