Although I've enjoyed much of Stewart's comedy in the past, I was nervous about watching this special as I'd been unable to finish the previous one, Content Provider (by the time you read this, I may have gone back to it.)
For most of the show, Stewart riffs on cancel culture, a topic that is probably far closer to home for him than it is for viewers. Some bits border on the tedious, despite his own meta-commentary acknowledging this very fact. As a proxy for the show's rhythm, the Ricky Gervais bit was hilarious until it got too long, about a quarter of the way through. In the end, he does manages to walk the thin line between tedium and entertainment for an hour without tumbling, leaving me satisfied to have watched the show.
On the one hand, I'm reminded that Stewart's comedy is too special to ignore. On the other hand, I detect a number of cheap jokes that would not have made it into former shows.
