100% Sarah Silverman: A Speck of Dust (2017) While it's not surprising that A Speck of Dust is so good - Silverman is a great joke writer and one of the all-time joke tellers, particularly skilled at pacing and performing her sets - it is that much more impressive. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

100% Mike Birbiglia: My Girlfriend's Boyfriend (2013) My Girlfriend's Boyfriend has a through-line story of how the comedian and his wife eventually decided to get married despite not believing in marriage, and it is such a worked-through, complete piece that is both moving and incredibly funny. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

100% Maria Bamford: Old Baby (2017) Maria Bamford is a genius, able to play with form without the ego or cynicism of many lauded deconstructionists. Her comedy and invention is self-inspired. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

100% Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady (2017) The result is an uncommonly confident, focused hour of comedy, all balanced with [Michelle] Wolf's tight yet often quite silly joke-writing. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

95% Jerry Before Seinfeld (2017) He tends to start with a small idea, then figure out the big idea behind his observation, then figure out the shortest way to communicate the absurdity of that imbalance - the absurdity of putting so much stock into the smallest thing possible. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

No Score Yet Just like the two hours I watched 14 years ago, watching these two hours makes it feel like Chappelle is working toward something. It's his way of telling us, "I'm around, I'm doing shows, and I'm having a great time." - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT

No Score Yet The Age of Spin succeeds because Chappelle focuses less on current events and more on the culture surrounding them. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT
