I decided to embrace change and try out the Netlix Watch Now feature. As a Netflix subscriber, it's free* to you. Since the kids have been hogging the Netflix queue this summer, I didn't have anything to watch tonight. Instead, I hoped over to Netflix using Internet Explorer (not my usual browser) and fired up The Comedians of Comedy: Live at the El Rey. Bob was reading while I listened to the first 15 minutes through headphones. But, I couldn't stop snorting, laughing, and generally being annoying to someone who doesn't know what's so funny.
He eventually put the book down and I turned on the sound. I backed the cursor up to the beginning and we watched the whole thing together. The first Comedians of Comedy: The Movie, shot by documentary film-makers, was can't-breathe-because-you're-laughing-so-hard funny. This new one, shot on the closing night of the tour, was all have-to-remove-your-glasses-and wipe the-tears-away-so-you-can-see funny. I laughed so hard that I'm going to be sore tomorrow.
It's a can't-miss line-up of comedians: Maria Bamford, Brian Posehn, and Patton Oswalt with a guest bit done by Bob Odenkirk. If you have a spare 54 minutes, a Netflix subscription and a hankie, cue it up.
*For each $1 of monthly plan cost (excluding taxes), 1 hour of instant watching is included.
