No Score Yet Jen Kirkman: Just Keep Livin'? (2017) It's her knack for self-deprecation that makes it feel so satisfying when she tackles the most insidious elements of society. That, along with her strong narration, make Kirkman's comedy, as well as her politics, quite easy to engage with. - AV Club EDIT

No Score Yet Judah Friedlander: America is the Greatest Country in the United States (2017) Friedlander has a great sense of when something is just a joke, and when it's not. Between that and his innovative approach to the material, America Is the Greatest Country in the United States is one of the most rewarding standup specials of the year. - New York Magazine/Vulture EDIT
