Christina P: Mom Genes is an unfiltered stand-up special that will have you laughing the entire time.

Netflix stand-up comedy special Christina P: Mom Genes will be released on the streaming service on May 8, 2022. 

Another month and another new standup comedy special coming to Netflix for me to watch and review. On today’s menu, Christina P: Mom Genes.

Christina comes out in her hot pink sequences outfit, making her look like a damn boss. She wastes no time tackling parenting with some hilarious jokes about how much has changed in raising kids over the last few decades. She spares no punches, from making fun of kids’ allergies to how sensitive parents are to kids no longer allowed to be kids.

We had a kid like that and called him Double Dare.

We often forget how funny jokes can be even when they might not always be “politically correct.” Some comedians change their style to adapt to the new norm and won’t cross many lines. They stay in their lanes, tell their jokes, and move on. There is nothing wrong with a comedian that does that. However, I love when a comedian is committed to their joke, especially when you get some groans from the audience. Of course, Christina’s jokes aren’t for everyone and that is perfectly fine, but damn, is she funny. Early on, as she is spilling into her “de-tarded” joke, the crowd moaned a little and she never stopped or wavered. She went full speed ahead and knocked the joke out of the ballpark.

I seriously haven’t laughed this much in a long time. Christina’s entire part of the special about her Dad literally had me in tears crying. It was not just the jokes but the delivery that mattered here because she has her Dad’s voice down and how she goes from her to him. I was dying. She goes OVER THE TOP and again, the groans come in a little and she makes fun of them. Christina P is my new hero.

I love my children more than life.

It’s nice to watch unrated, unfiltered stand-up comedy in this timeframe. I credit Netflix for allowing their comedians to do their thing without holding them back. Christina P: Mom Genes is not just one of the funniest stand-up specials of this year but the last couple of years. There was never a dull moment throughout this special, which is genuinely something hard to come by within stand-up comedy. Christina doesn’t hold back or isn’t scared to say the things most of us think daily. Because of that, I highly recommend you check this special out when it releases.

    I’m a boomer, I loved it! I have, and will continue to, recommend this to everyone that I see! There is nothing but truth in this. The best comedians always tell us s**t we already know, we just didnt know we knew it!
    What I am upset about is the constant need for every review I read about this awesome special to constantly snowflake. Jesus Christ people, this is comedy! Its supposed to be uncomfortable, its supposed to be racist or dark or off kilter because its about the human condition and how there is all of this, and more, within each & every one of us!

    Sad that you are lauding a woman who makes fun of people with disabilities. I stopped watching after the word dare. It was bad enough up until then (though admittedly funny in some parts) and was only getting worse. Really just unacceptable. I doubt you would feel this was acceptable if that was a relative or yours or someone you loved. Or maybe you would just join in. Either way, I don’t feel the need to watch it any further. You can be comedic without being degrading. To make people who have no control of their condition be the butt of your jokes is just cheap, sad, and takes little intelligence
