Running time:
78 minutes

 

In this Netflix original stand-up show, US comedian Jen Kirkman describes her life as a 40-something, divorcee who has no desire for children.

Jen Kirkman is another comedian who I didn’t know a lot about until deciding to check out her special on Netflix. Since watching I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine), I have watched several YouTube vortices worth of Kirkman’s stand-up and radio interviews — I am now a fan.

In I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine) Kirkman is fast paced and laugh out loud funny. The 78 minutes are filled with an intro skit, an exit skit and a stand up set. The main set has tales that feature toddler empowerment, living alone, a much younger one-night stand, and many more hilarious anecdotes.

There is swearing, there are references to sex and this is not a comedy show you should share with young kids. But if you enjoy good quality ‘slice of life’ humour, I’m Gonna Die Alone (And I Feel Fine) may tickle your funny bone.
