We review Netflix’s comedy special Andrew Santino: Cheeseburger, which was released on January 10, 2023.

Andre Santino made his stand-up comedy special debut on Adam Devine House Party in 2013. Since then he has released two specials, the last of which debuted in 2017 on Showtime, Home court advantage. He returns to the stage with his first netflix special in Andrew Santino: Cheeseburger. Is the special worth the detour? Let’s dive into it.

Andrew Santino: Cheeseburger Stand Up Comedy Review

The special was recorded in Denver, Colorado, where we have a direct opening for Andrew as the host announces him to come on stage. Then on stage we have a whole array of things going on, from a bar stand that has liquor on it and a cigar chair that has a stand with a drink next to it. I don’t know what’s going on, but I like the vibe.

After starting with a covid joke (luckily he didn’t stay here too long), Andrew tackles his prostate exam. When I tell you this was one of the funniest unfiltered accounts by a comedian about it, I’m not lying. I loved the perspective he brought to the approach here by including some aspects of how women feel in specific scenarios. It was a good start to the show.

Okay, I’m sure the hate will come for me when I say that, but the whole pissed off part of Andrew about climate change was so forced and lacked the fun moments. I get what he was trying to do, but he had a few moments where he felt like he was forcing the joke to the point where I found myself wanting to turn off the special. And just when I thought he would save it with a line, he threw another line which was followed by an audible sigh from me.

What’s crazy to me is that it continued throughout the fifty-eight minute runtime. I can imagine most people will turn it off halfway through. If you’re going to be “edgy,” do it with confidence and don’t sound like you’re trying to be “edgy” to be cool. It’s going so badly throughout the special.

Andrew Santino: Is Cheeseburger Good?

I’ll be honest, this one is an easy pass for me. I’m not saying there weren’t moments where I laughed, but the special as a whole was really lackluster. I said that a comedian on stage is there to make us laugh and not to run for office. Now Andrew addresses both sides and how stupid they can be, but he beats a dead horse over and over again, making each joke that follows less and less funny.

Globally, Andrew Santino: Cheeseburger is an overcooked and underseasoned special that I can’t wait to forget I watched. He tries too hard and fails to connect the dots with his jokes. I promise you can find something else better to watch.
