I’ve enjoyed Todd Glass since even before I knew exactly who he was, seeing him in the introduction movies for the Improv comedy clubs. Then came Last Comic Standing. Then came podcasts. Now comes his first Netflix special.
Things I particularly enjoyed in Act Happy:
- Telling jokes while his band plays The Battle Hymn of the Republic
- Ad-libbing a song about the fans in the front row
- Having the crowd chant, “Fuck Rory Scovel!”
- Watching him impersonate Brian Regan
- Watching him impersonate Rodney Dangerfield telling Mitch Hedberg jokes
- Watching him impersonate “Roger” Dangerfield
