Christopher Titus has very calmly stepped into the shoes George Carlin as one of the few comedians who really joke about things that matter. Carlin is perhaps the best comparison for this latest special as Titus takes aim more at society than at his own family. In fact I found almost every topic here a pleasant reminder of similar arguments made by Carlin in his heyday. From social responsibility to politics to drug use and child rearing. Regardless of topic, every joke in the Titus arsenal remains powerful and personal. No comedian today has blended his own soul into every joke so effectively. It’s so human it’s off putting, but you laugh even harder.
