Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady
Streaming on: HBO Go
Ever since she whipped the news cycles into a frenzy over her speech at the White House Correspondents Dinner, everyone has wanted to know more about this regular Daily Show contributor. We love her relatable and honest humor, and this special is the perfect peek into her upcoming The Break With Michelle Wolf.
John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City
Streaming on: Netflix
If you loved him on Saturday Night Live, you will love this standup special. The smart aleck kid in your class is all grown up – at least, his long limbs are! You will love his childlike creativity as he dives into marriage, living in New York, his childhood, and even The Last Supper through a well-woven stream of jokes and stories.
Streaming on: HBO & Amazon
Okay, this is a deep cut – or is it? The 2005 special that was the precursor to The Flight Of The Conchords’s own HBO show reminds fans of all the reasons that they were both so quirky and lovable. The standup special is riddled with clever asides from the New Zealand duo of Jemaine Clement & Bret McKenzie. Check it out – you won’t be disappointed.
