Running Time: 67 minutes

This Netflix comedy special will be available to view on May 19. (netflix.com/pattonoswaltiloveeverything).

I’ll admit that it’s a bit difficult to review a stand-up comedy special, given that a performer’s style may be hilarious to one person while not striking the funny bone of another.
