Gary Gulman has a way of hitting my comedy sweet spot every time, what with his pop-cultural references and combining the high, low and middlebrows with his six-foot-everything observations on life as it is now and how it was when we were younger.
In Gulman’s performance on Thursday night’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, he opens with a Hitler joke that immediately begets beautiful wordplay, before seamlessly segueing into a routine that portrays Christianity in new light as a successful TV or movie sequel to Judaism, then spins it into a play on a popular relationship book of our time.
