Netflix is on a quest, a quest for 1,000 original TV shows and movies by the end of 2018. And that quest means that they will be releasing over 400 new pieces before the end of the year…which means they will be putting out a lot of bad stuff. This is not one of those.
Steve Martin and Martin Short are two comedy legends, with a full range of movies in their careers, and they’ve been friends since their joint venture of Three Amigos (with Chevy Chase). 35 years of friendship and it has all boiled down to this one hour of everything crumbling down.
Marty, your comedy is effortless, and I wondered what it would be like if you actually put in some effort.
The hilarious duo fills their time with comedy, singing, music, banjos, ventriloquism, and of course a ton of laughs…and then bagpipes come out.
Steve and I are like Donny and Marie, without the sexual tension.
From the beginning, this special is going full force, but it seems to slow down when the banjo comes out…but only for a brief moment until the music really gets going.
Steve butt dialed me yesterday, which is impressive since he still uses a rotary phone.
But at the end of the day, it really is a giant celebration of their friendship, and this may be the best Netflix comedy special to date, a role previously held by Jeff Dunham, as it gets a 9.5 out of 10.
