Tom Segura's greatest assetand, at times, his biggest weaknessis his boldness. Not only does he advertise his latest Netflix special, Ball Hog, with a dead dog joke, but within the first two minutes he has bite about not wanting to fuck his kids. And it work. Of course, flipside of his onstage fearlessness is that sometimes Segura offends. He addresses this at length during his hour-plus set, sharing his perspective that everyone has the right to express their opinions, but they shouldnt expect anything to be done about it. And just to prove that, he double down his use of a common pejorative term for Romani people and throws in a couple of stereotypes to boot. Its lazy and reeks of insensitivityand not the slightly more acceptable kind that makes his rough-around-edges jokes usually so pleasing. Segura does the same when he uses a tired and reductive approach to gender identity, saying that hell call people whatever they want, even if they identify as shoelace. Gee, we haven't heard that one before. During most of his time in Austin, though, Segura keeps the audience in stitches, particularly when telling stories about his family. Whether hes defending his kid from playground bully or crushing his mother spirit on Christmas Day, his physicality and off-cuff delivery make for laugh-out-loud bits. Comedians and podcasters expertly tap into that part of you that not only loves your family, but also ca stand them at times. The set completely lacks any crowd work, save for when Segura might agree with a particularly loud yell from the audience, but he connects with viewers innately in his use of second person in a number of jokes. Not only that, but Your Mom House host peppers his set with advice as well; namely, save time by not arguing and following your dreams. He actually has some moments of sincerity with the latter piece of guidance, before steering it into his comfort zone of dick jokes. For all of his cynicism, it is clear that Segura has a gooey marshmallow core to him. That, combined with his boldness, could make for a spectacular comedy, but he hobbles himself with out-of-touch opinions and impressions of the Wu Tang Clan. At one point he remarks, Hey man, it is a modern comedy. Get with the program. Maybe Segura should follow his own advice. And yes, this score is a reference to his disdain for 69-ing.
