Theo Von: Comical Genius
Theodor Capitani von Kurnatowski with a stage name as Theo Von, is a renowned comedian, podcaster, television personality, YouTuber, and actor. He made his debut in Netflix’s 2016 series Theo Von: No Offense where he joked about his dating mishaps. Theo Van is back with his comical series with Theo Von Regular People where he targets the uniform life he underwent in his village. Theo seems energetic and bounces around even before he goes on the stage. The crowd cheers loudly when Theo’s name is announced and he comes running on the stage.
Theo Von: Stand-up comedy
The much-hyped comedy special is not impressable. It starts out good with the Theo making a superstar entry but has nothing to offer other than double-meaning jokes. The 1-hour long comedy seems dragged and stretched with unnecessary punches. In the last season, he made a joke about gay people, and this time he throws a punch at lesbian people. This proves that Theo only changes the story but the content remains the same as always.
Theo goes on to say that he has had a gender-neutral haircut and now no one can tell him about not supporting gender equality. He reveals that people will not know which gender he is and might be the toughest lesbian one has ever seen. Theo tries to create laughter by using statements like the ball is life but the punches fall flat. The laughter of the audience seems to be artificial and created after his every punch. Theo feels that he looks like shit in this haircut and walks around the stage with weird expressions.
Theo looks more like a rapper and WWE presenter than a comedian as his body language and voice appear similar to them. In contrast to the theme of regular people, all his jokes are on LGBTQ and Homosexuality which is intolerable and messy. Next, he talks about his fight with a black man and gets whistles and cheer from the audience.
Theo thanks his crowd to make it to his show with a negative test and a vax card or a fake vax card and tells them to “let us die together”. His body language is a complete disaster as he plays around the stage like a kid. His jokes are not mature enough and have the same old flavour.
Theo Von: Final Verdict
Theo Von tries his best to keep his punchlines balanced but miserably fails at delivering it. The trailer is the short version of his bad jokes and the series is a long version of it. Theo’s unfiltered comedy and humour are less understood by most people and it seems that his sense of humour is only for a few.
Theo seems to have deviated from the main topic and beats around the bush with sour punchlines. Overall Theo has to offer cringe and offensive jokes in this series which is a complete disappointment for comedy lovers. Though the start is better it goes on losing its shine as time passes.
