Summary

Sam Morril: Same Time Tomorrow is not only one of the best stand-ups of 2022 but of the last decade.

Netflix stand-up comedy special Sam Morril: Same Time Tomorrow will be released on the streaming service on September 1, 2022.

Your favorite stand-up comedian reviewer is back! On today’s menu, we have a brand new special streaming on Netflix, Sam Morril: Same Time Tomorrow. Let’s see what Mr. Morril has in store for us today.

“A shooting in Chicago that doesn’t involve a teenager.” My goodness, Sam comes out guns a blazing. He follows with several jokes that involve cops, teachers, and attending several BLM protests. I’ve mentioned before in previous reviews it’s all about how you start with these specials. You must grab the viewer’s attention to keep him from turning it off, and Sam Morril reels you within moments.

I was listening to Whitney Cummings on Kevin Hart’s podcast, where she talked about how new comedians’ specials, you can’t tell if they are running for office or not. She mentioned that because so many have come out with stances regarding specific political issues and gotten away from telling jokes. One of the things that I appreciated about Morril is that he hits on so many different political topics, but he hammers both sides. First, you hear him tackle cancel culture and how dumb it is, then he hits on Tucker Carlson. He doesn’t care what your political affiliation is, you were a target.

I swear this is the stand-up special I need in my life right now. When you have a veteran comedian that goes up on that stage and delivers funny JOKES without worrying about what anyone has to say about them, you know damn well you are in for a treat. Morril doesn’t need to razzle-dazzle you with facial expressions or be overly loud on the mic. Instead, he sits on the stage with this calm demeanor that never wavers and collects laugh after laugh.

From 9/11 to cancel culture to abortion to politicians, Morril played the greatest hits throughout the entire special. I am sure people will find themselves offended by some of what he jokes about (including Chappelle), but folks, it’s a comedy special, don’t like it, don’t watch it. Morril also did some hilarious crowd work that came out of the left field. I don’t have a doubt in my mind this will land amongst the top 2-3 comedy specials by the end of this year.

Overall, Sam Morril: Same Time Tomorrow is a pure knockout. It is forty minutes of some of the best material I have seen in a long time. There wasn’t a single joke that didn’t land. I can’t wait to watch this one again.
