James Acaster: Repertoire on Netflix

Just finished watching James Acaster: Repertoire on Netflix and wow.

It’s a four-hour standup special. Or rather it’s four different one-hour episodes. But those four episodes are tied together as if it was a single four-hour standup with breaks.

It’s also some of the tightest writing that I’ve seen in any book, movie, or short story I’ve experienced. At least three different stories weave their way in an arc that has more twists and turns than a French braid, and has no loose ends.

If you like standup, or if you like storytelling, this is worth your time.
