Lynne Koplitz: Hormonal Beast (2017)

This new Netflix special is a rarity among live comedy specials, featuring a middle-aged, unmarried woman gleefully relishing having a platform specifically on Netflix, while refusing to base her comedy on either self-deprecation or self-glorifying. Instead, Lynne Koplitz occupies the stage with the presence of a longtime superstar and the excitement of a newcomer, going from one hilarious story or anecdote to another without rushing the jokes or becoming a caricature. Her material is relatable without being unoriginal, while her more specific stories are ladled to the audience with familial glee and a dash of snark. It all makes for a very entertaining, consistently funny special that stands out among the fine comedy work being produced by Netflix these days.

Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
