"Despite the common belief that comedy is overrun with Trump jokes, most new specials today avoid the daily tumult of politics," says Jason Zinoman. "While late-night talk shows have cornered the market on bits about impeachment and the latest development in the presidential campaign, standup specials this year have moved in the opposite direction. Just look at Lobby Baby by Seth Meyers, whose talk show produces the sharpest political material on late night. His Netflix debut displays another side of him, talking about subject matter that’s far more personal than political."
