We’ve said it over and over and we’ll say it again: Rory Scovel is one of the funniest comedians working today.
This special, Rory Scovel Tries Stand-Up For The First Time, is proof of it as Scovel, in a deceptively casual way, shows off all of his many skills. He has well crafted material that carefully meshes the absurd, keen observations, and the truth. Yet, he’s always willing to chase the fun of a moment wherever it will take him. It’s a balance that few comics can manage, much less keep going for an hour.
Also, it has a damn great opening (hats off to director Scott Moran as well).
Basically, free up an hour and change as soon as you can and stream Rory Scovel Tries Stand-Up For The First Time ASAP.
