If you watch a lot of stand up and comedy shows on Netflix, you probably got a notification about “Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special.” Since I had no other plans, I decided to watch it (also because I saw Fred Armisen on one of the thumbnails). I had no idea what to expect because I don’t really know much about Bolton. I do love a random Netflix comedy special that didn’t have a lot of publicity leading up to it!
It was weird, dirty, and original. It was great. Scott Aukerman (“Comedy Bang Bang”) and Akiva Schaffer (The Lonely Island) co-directed the special with an all-star cast. Andy Samberg, Sarah Silverman, Maya Rudolph, and Will Forte are just a few of the comedians who appear in the show. There is singing, dancing, sketches, and weird romance (and maybe even an appearance from Santa Clause). I don’t want to give too much away so I’m going to stop. But if you don’t like SNL, then you’re probably going to hate Michael Bolton’s special, so don’t watch it. If you DO Like SNL and you wouldn’t mind if it even went a step further, then why are you still reading this? GO WATCH!
