5 Hilarious Netflix Specials To Binge If You Need A Laugh In 2020

Netflix specials are single-handedly keeping my spirits high.

5 Hilarious Netflix Specials To Binge If You Need A Laugh In 2020

I cannot tell you the number of times that I have re-watched these comedy specials over the course of the last seven months.

What I can tell you is how absolutely great these comedians are. They bring me joy when I am sad, bored, or wanting to tune into something while I work on school or my virtual job.

All of these comedians are both relatable and keep a smile on my face as I sit through their stories.

My article presents five comedians: Gabriel Iglesias, Sam Jay, Taylor Tomlinson, John Mulaney, and Iliza Schlesinger.

There are two words that I have for these specials: Must. Watch.

​​​1.​​ Gabriel Iglesias / Fluffy is incredible.

Fluffy is one of the best comedians in my list. He is my go-to whenever I am feeling sad, bored, or just someone that I can watch again and again to my heart's content!

My favorite comedy special of his is definitely "I'm Sorry For What I Said When I Was Hungry."

He also has a show called "Mr. Iglesias" that has two seasons. It is one of the best binge-worthy shows I have on my list.

2. Sam Jay is spirited.

Sam Jay is a very spirited comedian. She's written for shows like "Saturday Night Live" and finally got her own Netflix show called "3 In The Morning." Topics she covers throughout the special include traveling with her girlfriend, her fear of planes, and her take on relationships! It just came out on August 4, 2020, and I adore it.

3. Taylor Tomlinson is relatable.

Now, if I were to relate the most to anyone when it comes to attitudes, it would definitely be Taylor Tomlinson. In her comedy special, Taylor discusses dating, terrible sleeping habits, adulthood, and her take on our parents. Her special is called "Quarter-Life Crisis" and came out March 3, 2020.

4. John Mulaney is hilarious.

While Mulaney currently has four comedy specials on Netflix, my absolute favorite of the four has to be "Kid Gorgeous at Radio City." In this special, Mulaney discusses his childhood stories, graduating college, what it has been like getting older, and stories about his wife. This special was released back in 2018. My absolute favorite story is the "BECAUSE I WAS OVER ON THE BENCH!" discussion he had with his father as a kid.

5. Iliza Schlesinger is stylish (and funny).

Iliza has a total of 4 Netflix specials and a new show that just came out in 2020! The special I have watched the most is "Confirmed Kills." Iliza talks about special party goblins that live in us, her party years, dating, and how tired she is of grown women screeching. Also her outfit in "Confirmed Kills" is impeccable.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.


Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
