I'm not even the biggest fan of stand-up comedy but let me tell you about a special I saw on Netflix that may have been the SMARTEST I've ever seen!

Hannah Gadsby is an Australian comedian who has autism and one of the smartest comedy styles I've ever seen. The show is called "Douglas" and it is hilarious.

She starts the show by essentially telling you everything you're going to experience through it; a table of contents or timeline if you will. Then she tells you HOW she's going to end the show. She'll tell you to watch out for a Louis CK joke and that no matter how much you think about it, you won't see it coming, and then the show will end. And as promised, you don't see it coming, and it's brilliant.

This is not comedy for the easily offended but it's certainly brilliant. 5 stars go to "Douglas", by Hannah Gadsby!
