Lots of inside drummer jokes ,but fairly hit and miss.
Filmed at Great America Music Hall in SF.
Looks like you had to prove you're a drummer to get in.

This is actually not new. It's from 2018. I thought overall it was pretty good.
Netfix just popped it up the other day and I thought it was new.
I was wondering where all the masks were.

I loved Fred - really enjoyed the show - I actually just barely missed being there for the live show a few years ago - I was in town the week BEFORE they filmed it.

There was some thing like you had to play rudiments to get in - something like that.

I watched about 30 seconds of something of his online doing stand-up with a drum set. It just wasn't my thing.

I just don't find it funny. Much at all. I couldn't get to the end.

It was ok. Some of the humour fell flat, but I liked the bit where he played the kits from different eras.

The intro was funny, though, having to play a double stroke roll to get in. I liked the look on the face of the guy who played a decent roll, Armisen responds with basically "meh", and the guy is like "wtf?".

The irony is he started in a punk band and classic technique was frowned upon.
