For every bit that's flatly derivative ... there's another that connects.

Highlights some of the best, and raunchiest, of [Griffin's] humor.

Even when some of his material has a "been there, heard that" sense to it, Griffin's outbursts of charisma help elevate the overall presentation.

... Griffin's social commentary is just as piercing and hilarious as the autobiographical stuff.

Ted Fry
