What it's about

Touring several cities, the comedian discusses the contradictions and difficult truths of white womanhood.

The take

There's a laidback quality to It's Great to Be Here that makes the three-episode stand-up series a good introduction to Michelle Wolf's brand of comedy, but it also means there isn't anything particularly groundbreaking or powerful here. The miniseries format also doesn't do the show many favors, with each episode trailing off abruptly—when a single, longer compilation of Wolf's routines could've probably carried more momentum. Still, the comedian remains as insightful and as ruthless as ever, mostly taking aim at the grey area that white women like herself live in between liberal feminist empowerment and entitled white privilege. She doesn't take herself too seriously and doesn't make an exception of herself, which is a great tool to have.

What stands out

If you've ever seen Michelle Wolf's performance at the 2018 White House Correspondents' Dinner—where she casually yet savagely rips into a room full of journalists who become increasingly unhappy with her—you know this is a woman with no fear. And while there isn't anything in this special that gets close to that now (in)famous performance of hers, her material is still at its best when she targets bigger fish and systems that allow bad behavior to continue unchecked. So even if we know it won't do much damage, there's still some satisfaction in hearing Wolf call out Netflix, the very platform this show is on, about how it's helped romanticize true crime and dangerous serial killers to an uncomfortable degree.
