Don't call it a comeback. Seriously. But J-L is back this week to discuss the Super Bowl in his own unique way. He also reviews 3 new comedy specials on Netflix. It is a fun return to your earbuds!

This episode is a doozy. J-L mourns the future death of his movie reviews, offers a new Moment of Dane and then discusses reluctantly trying to help an ex only to find out it's for something far less worthwhile. J-L then wraps up discussing criticisms of a new comedy special and how he hates how Netflix and TV are using stand up to test market young talent, rather than to reward those that are ready.

J-L starts with a new Moment of Dane and then gets into his comedy career (uh oh) before getting into his trip out west for a private show and a trip to see the Utah Jazz. It's a good episode, even if this description isn't.

J-L is solo this week and he discusses his upcoming trips, offers a new Moment of Dane, reviews the new Disney movie Moana and shares his Dad's thoughts on the life and death of Fidel Castro.
J-L then concludes with anger and frustration with a new Netflix comedy special, specifically a bit that bears resemblance to an underappreciated bit from J-L's 2013 album Keep My Enemies Closer. J-L makes a 48 hour plea to all fans and supporters of the show as a result.

Comedian J-L Cauvin takes a popular subject each week and discusses with a fan of that subject why they are wrong.
A lawyer by education, a comedian by trade and a disappointment to my parents, I travel the country telling jokes and interviewing people once a week to convince them the things they like are not actually as good as they think they are.
