In a two episode comedy special, Ari Shaffir’s 2017 “Double Negative” creates hilarious connections in his stories throughout his life amidst his childhood and growing up as a young adult.

This Netflix original will be sure to entertain you throughout. Shaffir is a 44 year-old comedian from New York City. He is a very laid back performer and has a tendency to highlight the downfalls of dating and having kids.

Shaffir titles the two episodes “Children” and “Adulthood”. In “Children” he depicts stories from his childhood about himself and his friends growing up, and several stories he had with others’ kids as a young adult.

In his “Adulthood” he makes countless jokes at the throes of dating life and his travels across the world where he has visited.

Shaffir does a great job to keep things in a conversational tone with the audience. He almost seems as if he has nothing planned before coming up on stage and is perfectly casual.

As a big fan of comedy shows, I was very satisfied after watching and I had several moments when I burst out laughing at one of his hilarious anecdotes about traveling to Australia, or online dating.

I really appreciated the way Shaffir interacts with the live crowd.  He adds a lot of genuinity to the show when he asks about people and where they’re from, which I really enjoyed because it adds an unexpected personal dynamic to the show.

I was also very satisfied with the diversity in Shaffir’s content. He talks about so many different topics, including dealing with his hatred for kids, dating life online, going out for a date at restaurants, and the list continues. Despite touching on many different topics, he kept the show flowing so well from beginning to finish.

Shaffir does everything that you should look for in a comedy special. He brings us into his life through his wacky stories and hilarious jokes. I would recommend “Double Negative” to anyone who may like comedy specials and is ok with a little foul language. I’d especially recommend this to anyone who isn’t very fond of kids!
