Netflix Stand-Up Special Catherine Cohen: The Twist…? She’s Gorgeous will be released on streaming service on March 15, 2022

I am a huge standup comedy fan and I love stumbling across specials from acts I’ve never seen before. So on the menu today is Catherine Cohen and her brand new special The Twist…? She’s Gorgeous.

Boys never wanted to kiss me, so now I do comedy.

She begins the standup special with a song about how she got to where she was. I wasn’t expecting this to start this way, but she does have a beautiful voice. Blending music and comedy is not easy to do, but Catherine Cohen opens with a banger to reel us into her little world and I loved it.

Catherine tackles so many different topics in her special, from sex to criticizing superhero movies to my favorite song of the entire special, “Take My Money,” where she goes after companies and their terrible size of clothes for girls and women. She isn’t afraid to share her feelings about how society has this made-up idea of what size women should or shouldn’t be. The song is a perfect blend of comedy, facts, and incredible punchlines.

One of the more impressive things about watching Catherine is how she commands the stage. Every comedian delivers on stage differently. You have some who stand on the stage and deliver their jokes and you have others who use the entire stage and even themselves to take a joke to another level. That’s what she did. From the way she walked to her facial expressions to her voice changes, she makes the jokes deliver on another level.

For the crowd that loves to watch standup comedians get on the stage and just tell their jokes and get off the stage, this special won’t be for you. Catherine is a straight shooter with her jokes and she will ruffle feathers, but she nails the perfect blend of comedy and music with some catchy tracks (I would listen to an album) and killer punchlines that make you laugh from start to finish.
