All those years of hosting This Is Not Happening have rubbed off on Ari Shaffir in the best way possible.
You can see the effect on his latest special, Double Negative, which just started streaming on Netflix. The way in which he weaves personal observations and stories in, through, and around a single Tinder-related incident that befell a friend is subtle, but very impressive. You almost don’t even realize he has been circling and off-shooting from the same point for the whole hour until the end of it. Therein lies Ari’s detailed, seamless craftsmanship.
So, with that said, give Ari’s Double Negative a watch when you can.
