Must also keep in mind that both of the specials were filmed over a year ago, so the material isn’t current today. The special he is reportedly working on now will be the true test.
But overall, I disagree. I thought both specials were funny and on par with the others he’s done. The part in the second special where he smoked a square and philosophisized (#respeckmyboyznthehoodreference) about the word “pussy” was gold.
