"While most stand-up comedians spend their sets trying to be funny (because that is, of course, their one job) many shy away from being silly," says Ashlie D. Stevens. "Jenny Slate does not. In her new Netflix special, Stage Fright, she high-kicks. She emits piercing squeals and slips into that weird baby voice some people do when they’re trying to be sexy. She dances, arms undulating and tongue flicking. This is how, she explains, a Dickensian ghost would dance — like the kind that apparently haunted her childhood home. Stage Fright is especially fulfilling for people who are already fans of Slate. She’s carved out a pretty devoted following as part of an in-crowd of fellow unabashedly awkward women like Ilana Glazer, Abbi Jacobson, Maya Erskine, and Quinta Brunson."
