Whitney Cummings: Can I Touch It? is a stand-up comedy special that premiered on Netflix in 2019. The special is hosted by Whitney Cummings, a well-known comedian, actress, and writer, who is best known for co-creating the CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls and the NBC sitcom Whitney. The one-hour special takes place at the Sidney Harmon Hall in Washington, D.C. Cummings begins the show by addressing the audience and asking if it's okay to touch on certain topics, including #MeToo, feminism, and politics. She then dives into her routine, delivering jokes that touch on a range of societal issues, personal experiences, and pop culture references.

One of the themes that Cummings explores is the changing landscape of comedy in the age of social media and political correctness. She talks about how comedians have to be more careful about what they say and how they say it, and points out that social media has made it easier for people to take offense at jokes.

Another theme that Cummings touches on is her own personal life. She talks about her recent breakup, her struggles with anxiety and depression, and her experience with cosmetic surgery. She also jokes about her small stature, self-deprecatingly referring to herself as a "Jewish hobbit."

Throughout the special, Cummings delivers her jokes with her trademark energy and wit, keeping the audience engaged and laughing. She also incorporates some physical comedy, including pantomiming an invisible person and doing a mock striptease.

One of the highlights of the special is when Cummings interacts with an AI robot named RoboThespian. The robot, which is designed to respond to voice commands and gestures, looks like a cross between a human and a robot. Cummings jokes about the robot's looks and functionality, and interacts with it as if it were a real person.

Overall, Whitney Cummings: Can I Touch It? is an entertaining and engaging comedy special that showcases Cummings' talent as a comedian and writer.
