End of 2020 Comedy Specials

Here is my review of the End of 2020 Comedy Specials ๐ŸŽฆ

Netflix "Death to 2020"

Netflix “Death to 2020”

๐Ÿ†š

Amazon Prime "Yearly Departed"

Amazon Prime “Yearly Departed”

Waited 4๏ธโƒฃ New Year’s Eve to watch each special, with a new bottle of Prosecco ๐Ÿพ

First up, Yearly Departed on Amazon Prime Video. This special features an all female cast of comedians (below alphabetically). Next to each iconic comedian I’ve listed what each is THRILLED to “cancel” from 2020 ๐Ÿšซ

Promise it doesn’t ruin it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Rachel Brosnahan – Pants
  • Ziwe Fumudoh – Beige Band-Aids
  • Tiffany Haddish – Casual Sex
  • Patti Harrison – Rich Girl Instagram Influencers
  • Natasha Leggero – Having Any More Kids
  • Natasha Rothwell – TV Cops
  • Sarah Silverman – Make America Great Again

Directed by Linda Mendoza (support female directors ๐Ÿฅณ)

This 45 minute special had me laughing from beginning to end. Literally had to stop after @TiffanyHaddish because I was choke coughing ๐Ÿ˜‚

No joke, took a break, refilled my glass of Prosecco & had to pull myself together because I couldn’t stop laughing ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Also had to start over because I missed 1/2 of what Tiffany was saying!

Each brilliant woman holds her own comedically. Both social & political topics everyone loved to make fun of in 2020 are covered.

There is even a special guest that brings it home at the end. Won’t reveal it here, you have to watch ๐Ÿ˜‹

In the outtakes you see the skillful way the director produced many elements in post, to ensure cast/staff were distanced & safe ๐Ÿ˜ท


Next, End of 2020 Comedy Special, Death to 2020 on Netflix runs a little over an hour. I’ve listed the cast alphabetically & the role each portrays ๐ŸŽญ

  • Hugh Grant, Professor of History
  • Samuel L. Jackson, Reporter
  • Leslie Jones, Behavioral Therapist
  • Samson Kayo, Scientist
  • Joe Keery, Gig Economy Millennial
  • Lisa Kudrow, Non-official Spokesperson
  • Cristin Milioti, Self-Described Average Soccer Mom
  • Diane Morgan, Average Citizen
  • Kumail Nanjiani, Billionaire Tech Mogul
  • Tracey Ullman, Queen Elizabeth

Directed by Al Campbell & Alice Mathias

NARRATED BY LAURENCE FISHBURNE ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Death to 2020 is a look back on the entire year starting with the Australian fires in January & goes through our insane American election ๐Ÿคข

Every 1๏ธโƒฃ of these brilliant actor/comedians had me on the floor ๐Ÿ˜น, promise it wasn’t the Prosecco ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿฅด

I have watched it several times since & die each time ๐Ÿคช

To prove it I will give you a spoiler. My favorite line talking about America & the election, “…This story line is far fetched, but I’m well into this… I’M BINGING THE SHIT OUT OF IT!!!! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Producing in an interview, narration, clip shot format, I believe was an ingenious method to keep all cast/staff socially distanced & safe ๐Ÿ’–


If I had to pick my favorite End of 2020 Comedy Special, I would have to choose…

drum roll

Death to 2020

I highly recommend you watch both, but Death to 2020 on Netflix wins by a narrow margin.

As someone that can’t stomach the news, I feel Death to 2020 gives an accurate & hysterical run down of the entire horrific year that was 2020. It’s the type of high-brow humor I absolutely love!

RIP 2020 โšฐ๏ธ & HAPPY 2021 EVERYONE ๐ŸŽŠ

STAY FASHIONABLE!๐Ÿฅฐ
