The stand-up comedian often talks in his sketches about the hypocrisies of the authority, politics, the English language, psychology, religion, and various taboo subjects. The stand-up comedian’s black humor is visible in this special comedy that contains clips of his television appearances during his stand-up comedy career.

The routines from this special stand-up comedy will definitely make you cry of laughing. Some of you may consider that this stand-up comedy is perfect for the old generation, because contains some old segments, but I can assure you that the stand-up comedian’s performance has new, original and incredible funny material.
