That's totally expected / acceptable from a debut show. There were many more hits than misses though, and that bodes well for the remainder of the run as it gathers pace. I laughed a lot and I'm looking forward to tuning in as she hits her groove in the weeks to come. I'm really enjoying all the '0' scores on here from Republicans / Trump boosters, incidentally. She's *really* p*ssed them off :-) Expand

    In general the humour is much too weak – to the point where the audience are audibly not laughing very much, and Wolf says things like "f*ckIn general the humour is much too weak – to the point where the audience are audibly not laughing very much, and Wolf says things like "f*ck you, that was a great joke" or "it’s my birthday, you have to like that joke".

    She's also way too into her material or delivery, and laughs at most of the jokes herself. This is basically the opposite of what real comedians do. One extreme example is Sarah Silverman's deadpan delivery, but then again she dares so much more than Wolf.

    I'm not sure who Wolf's heroes are, but it doesn't seem to be any of the comedians famous for pushing the envelope. She has a LOT to learn from those people – for example women like Nikki Glaser, Amy Schumer, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and of course Sarah Silverman. Or guys like Jeff Ross, David Spade, Anthony Jeselnik and Don Rickles.

    Couple this with the explicit hatred for anything on the right side of the political spectrum and the fact that she literally calls politicians for "nazis", and you have a recipe for very predictable jokes, themes and delivery.

    The format gets very old after just two or three episodes, and I'm writing this after S01E05. This show desperately needs better writers, and a host that isn't so into herself.

    Shortly after Netflix rewarded Michelle Wolf with her own Netflix sponsored show, they declared there would be no more user reviews allowed.Shortly after Netflix rewarded Michelle Wolf with her own Netflix sponsored show, they declared there would be no more user reviews allowed. This is all part of the extreme Leftist platform of programming via Netflix. They, Netflix, can't abide criticism, and are intent on feeding propaganda to the viewing public. Not anything I care to watch, as is much of the Netflix original material they are pushing. Expand

    Vulgar, immature and completely devoid of humor. Ms Wolf is no more entertaining than an adolescent girl in juvenile detention.

Netflix seems to be scraping the bottom of the barrel for content. And how does a person that looks like that make fun of anyone's looks? Regardless of your politics... she just isn't funny. But even if she was it would be really hard to watch the show because that voice of hers makes your ears bleed. Expand
