Heather McMahan: Son I Never Had 2023 / A straightforward hour of stand-up that isn't as funny as it is sweet and sincere

5.9

In terms of the quality of the material delivered in Son I Never Had, this special is really just okay at best. Heather McMahan has charisma and personality, but she has a tendency to run directly into the set-ups for her jokes, without the kind of build-up between segments that would make the whole hour flow better. And the comedy here is pretty standard, lightly raunchy fare that’s often amusing but never really cuts deep into the various topics McMahan brings up. Where she’s really successful, instead, is in the way she uses humor to contrast the lingering but gentle grief she feels over her father’s passing. Son I Never Had, in its own roundabout way, becomes a sort of extended eulogy, emphasizing how our loved ones remain with us in our every memory.
