Just for the fact that Joe Mande called his first hour special “Joe Mande’s Award-Winning Comedy Special” should be enough to at least tug at your curiosity to give it a watch.
A la The Secret, Mande not only named this special with the hopes of it winning awards, but also weaved a silly, meta narrative thread through the hour that makes you wonder if Joe can really “moneyball” a comedy special. That includes surprise cameos from Bo Burnham, Blake Griffin, and George Wallace.
Also, the entrepreneurial pitches and Mande’s own personal crisis over free speech are bits that stand alone separate from the “award-winning” framework.
With all of that said, you can now go stream Joe Mande’s Award Winning Comedy Special at Netflix.
