You can see most of us liked your previous specials but are disappointed that this one is more of exactly the same and somehow you're delivering jokes even slower than before.

regardless, still entertaining.

And things start to feel repetitive if you've seen his previous two specials.

Boring .

Really slow delivery that put me to sleep.

Granted, there are some jokes in here that still work, but you have to fish them out between a sea of boring filler.

Reminds of a Jimmy Carr show, but more drawn out in execution with too many pauses for dramatic effect.

So slow and has terrible delivery.

It was quite entertaining.

Negatives: His delivery somehow got even slower to the point I wasn't sure if the video was playing at regular speed.

I laughed once or twice and the rest of the time I thought lame and boring.

Entertaining for some.

I am a big fan of Jeselnik and his dark humor but most of the jokes this time were predictable.

Good, but repetitive and predictive .

It's just monotonous and repetitive.

Don't waste your time .

Hilarious yet repetitive .

The bits were so formulaic, I knew pretty much how each joke was going to end, from the setup.

Boring .

All these repetitive setups became tiring and predictable after 20 minutes.

Boring.

Been sat for the first twenty minutes wondering if he has some sort of birth defect (or accident later on perhaps) that makes him so slow, and also I think of perhaps a type of CP...?I would like him so much more if I knew for sure that he was slow for a reason...

Had to force myself to finish watching it because I got a little bored.

However this new special was really boring.

Lots of time wasting and extremely predictable misdirection jokes, very similar to the ones in his previous specials, except bad.

Last joke dragged for too long and wasn't funny.
