Ari Shaffir is a well-known stand-up comedian who has been in the game for quite some time. His latest offering, "Double Negative," is a Netflix special that sees the comic taking a deep dive into the darker side of human nature. The show is separated into two parts, with the first part focusing on the negative aspects of Shaffir's own life, and the second part delving into the negative aspects of society at large. The first part is entitled "Children" and takes a frank and honest look at the comedian's own childhood and the negative experiences that have shaped him into who he is today. One of the topics that Shaffir tackles in this section is bullying, and he retraces some of the experiences that he had as a child, both as a victim and even as a perpetrator. He also touches on his relationships with his family and his own struggles with depression and addiction.

In the second part of the show, entitled "Adulthood," Shaffir turns his lens on the world around him and examines some of the more negative tendencies of society. He covers topics such as the porn industry, drug use, and the effects of social media on our lives. Throughout this section, Shaffir maintains his irreverent sense of humor, utilizing satire and sarcasm to point out some of the more absurd aspects of modern life.

One of the things that sets "Double Negative" apart from other comedy specials is Shaffir's willingness to tackle difficult and controversial topics. He doesn't shy away from hot-button issues, and his jokes are often designed to challenge our assumptions about the world around us. Some of the moments in the show are admittedly uncomfortable, but they're always thought-provoking.

Shaffir is well-known for his freewheeling style, and this is on full display throughout "Double Negative." He's not afraid to go off on tangents, and some of the most hilarious moments in the show come from his off-the-cuff observations. This isn't a tightly scripted set, but rather a loose collection of ideas that Shaffir has been mulling over for years.

Overall, "Double Negative" is a smart, challenging comedy special that offers plenty of laughs while also confronting some of the more difficult aspects of human nature. Shaffir is a gifted storyteller, and he uses his platform to shed light on issues that are often ignored in mainstream comedy. It's not a show for the faint of heart, but for those willing to take the journey with him, the rewards are well worth it.
