Yesterday I watched ‘Recalibrate’ Russell Howard’s latest stand up tour recorded for Netflix. Honestly, I was really impressed with some of the subjects he talked about. Feminism, terrorism and life for young people at the moment. Even though it made me laugh, the underlying message was really interesting, uplifting as well as being incredibly relevant.
I think the reason why I was so happy to see a comedy stand up that had darker subjects is because I have been waiting for a TV show, film or stand up like this. People need to know about the issues that are going on in the world and the issues my generations and older generations have to cope with. I think it was a really clever way of getting the message across whilst still being entertaining.
I would love to know what everyone else thought about it!
