– Whindersson Nunes: My Own Show review does not contain spoilers –
Whindersson Nunes is a well-known name in the Brazilian comedy scene. At one time, his YouTube channel was the most subscribed channel in Brazil which speaks volumes about his popularity and mass appeal. In Whindersson Nunes: My Own Show, Nunes speaks on a host of different topics ranging from the pandemic to a pain in his ass. It’s a variety of things here that will keep you on your toes.
However, I have said this before and I will say it again. It’s no fun watching comedy shows in other languages and of other cultures. Sure, you get to learn a lot but you don’t understand the nuances of that culture’s comedy – the internal jokes that we are not privy to. That’s something I have faced with most other shows and something I faced with this one.
The more general bits were quite funny albeit a bit fantastical. The situations that Nunes comes up with are just so unbelievable that you laugh because of the sheer improbability of the situation. At other times, I sat there wondering what the punchline is. Again, the cultural context is necessary to get to the bottom of shows such as these. Without it, you lose the charm and most of the jokes that these well-known comedians come up with.
So, as an outsider looking in, how does Whindersson Nunes: My Own Show fare? It’s definitely funny in some places. I found myself audibly cackling sometimes and some of the references I did understand, so that’s always a plus. You won’t find yourself to be too much of an “outsider”. Some of his skits are straight-up hilarious and I audibly laughed out loud. I think Nunes has really nice vibes that make you want to listen to what he’s saying, although you have to read a lot to understand it.
