Somebody did a spot-on parody of every standup special on Netflix. Here are a few highlights: The comic always opens by naming the city they’re in, and people cheer. They use the mic for sound effects, like a door knock or a door creaking open.
The stool is a prop that can be a machine gun, a cowboy on a horse, or even a dead body. The bottle of water? When they take a drink, it’s a cue to the audience to keep laughing and laughing, which they always do.
Speaking of the audience . . . every cutaway shows someone dying of laughter. And there’s always this FINAL moment. The comic will land a punch line, and then hurry through the “thank you good night” at lightning speed as everyone cheers.
