Amy Schumer’s highly anticipated stand-up special for Netflix is getting overwhelmingly negative reviews from users who are tuning in and rating it.
“Amy Schumer: The Leather Special” hit Netflix last week, and as the streaming service’s subscribers are starting to watching it, less-than-stellar reviews have been pouring in.
“I made it 10 minutes into this and shut it off,” one viewer review read. The user gave the special one-star out of five.
Another viewer added, “SO BAD!! I did stay and watch the whole show in hopes that it would get better, and it didn’t.”
Yet another one-star user review added, “It just drags on and on. I’m really disappointed.”
Amy Schumer's new Netflix comedy special is laughably bad, which is the only laugh you'll get from it. And I say that as a fan.— Hey_Drienne (@Hey_Drienne) March 15, 2017
Just watched Amy Schumer's Netflix special. Not funny. Not funny at all.— Lewis Tough (@lewistough) March 12, 2017
The special has nearly 1,200 user reviews and an overall average rating of 1.5 stars.
The stand-up special hasn’t done much better with TV critics.
The LA Times' reviewer said the special was too over-the-top when it came to the R-rated content Schumer is known for. “’The Leather Special’ not only relies on… explicit themes, but kicks it all up a notch so there’s more of it — with more frequency and extremities. And as it turns out, that’s not a good thing.”
Newsday’s TV critic gave a similar message, rating the special with a C grade, writing it’s “too much” and “too carnal.”
The Detroit News called the special “funny but predictable.”
Schumer’s stand-up special for the streaming service was announced back in January.
At the time a Netflix exec stated, "Totally fearless and always hilarious, Amy Schumer's bold and singular voice in comedy is a brilliant match for Netflix and our global comedy fans.”
Schumer previously released a 2015 stand-up special on HBO.
