I'm a 35 year old women and I found the show hilarious. It left mewanting to just hang out with Ali, and maybe she would become my bestfriend. Her humor is extremely relatable, based on truths some of whichI had chosen to forget, others keep quiet. Watching the show on my own,I found myself laughing out loud on my couch, and wondering how shewould dare say some of the things coming out of the mouth, and if herhusband and family were allowed to watch the show. I've also watched afew episodes of Fresh Off the Boat - a show for which she writes - andcould recognize the frankness of her style despite covering completelydifferent topics.

Read some mixed reviews about this special, mostly good, so I figuredI'd give it a shot. I'm regretting that now. Maybe it's just the humorthat I'm accustomed to but I found none of Baby Cobra entertaining. Icould tell she was trying and what she does works for some people. Itcertainly has nothing to do with the slight vulgar elements, I'm a bigfan of Ron White's stand-up. It simply isn't funny in my opinion. Ienjoy the comedy styles of those like Jim Gaffigan and Mitch Hedberg.She's closer to the level of someone like Amy Schumer without the shockvalue...or the funny. My opinion was obviously much different than thepeople in the audience. Had I not seen people in the seats I would havebeen sure Netflix used a laugh track at her punchlines. I would havegiven her special a rating of 1 out of 10 if it weren't for two vaguelyredeeming qualities: She appears to be enthusiastic about performingand she's an attractive female comic. (The last reason may come off abit crass but I really had no other motivation to endure the entireshow.) I'm not attempting to deter anyone from watching her show butafter seeing it I would advise you to set the bar low before starting.
