Review: Steve Treviño: 'Til Death
Stand-up comedy has always been one of my guilty pleasures in life. A guy gets up on stage and starts ripping the world; what’s not to like? In ‘Til Death, Steve Treviño tackles the thorny topic of marriage. Unlike so many who have come before him, Treviño succeeds at finding his mark without having to descend into crass insults at his wife’s expense (not that this is a G-rated special by any means). Instead, Steve relies on his observations and experiences to weave the hilarious tale of his time as a husband and father.
Available to watch on Amazon Prime, and with a runtime and of 56 minutes, ‘Til Death is perfect for a date night with your significant other. In fact, it’s pretty much mandatory. If you’re not sitting there deciding whether a particular bit applies to your relationship, and who’s the guilty party, you’re doing it wrong. Also, if you’re a rookie at the relationship game, I’m not sure you’ll get the full impact of this comedy special.
As a husband of thirteen years and a father of two…yeah, I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to extract joy from another couple’s battle, just as I know what it’s like to engage in such battles over petty crap like a parking space. I know Captain Evil’s pain that her son just couldn’t call her mom, instead opting for “babe” or calling her by name. “This is my mommy and this is my Stephen Munz” actually happened. Repeatedly. Which is to say that I found ‘Til Death to be one of the most relatable pieces of stand-up I’ve ever watched.
To sum things up…this isn’t just a two thumbs up. If you’re married, 'Til Death is must see TV in my humble opinion. If you’re single…maybe go play in the kiddie pool instead.
‘Til next time.
