I follow him since I have first listened one of the his stand up spceials, I think he has a very different kind of humor which is refreshing inside all of this new comedians just using same kind of humor, hard to find unique people now. the only think I am not sure about If I liked it or not is how dry his humor is, because I feel like some jokes would be better with some like kind of role playing but I guess not showing too much reaction also one of his trademarks and it actually makes the joke better at some situations, but it also felt like he wasn't feeling comfortable on stage so much but I hope he would get more comfortable on stage. I don't say he should act different but I felt he was feeling too much under pressure which some jokes made to look weird rather than funny, but getting more comfortable is something comes with time I guess. I also liked his jokes a lot it kinda reminds me Dylan Moran in the way he also uses different perspectives and creative materials to make jokes, so overall his jokes are creative and very interesting loved it.
