Gould proved that any topic can be funny, to prove that, he started his comedy set with "an AIDS joke, a rape joke, and a joke about 9/11." While I won't spoil the joke, the rape joke, which warped to raping clowns, is pretty funny.
I didn't care about the relationship jokes, and thankfully, those jokes were kept to a minimum. Instead, Gould concentrate more on crime (severed heads under the Hollywood sign, the Black Dahlia, and Ku Klux Klan) and pop culture (Bob Hope, reality shows).
Where Gould really shine is when he is joking about music, particularly any of his Beatles jokes like Stephen Hawking as the Beatles of Scientists and John Lennon in morning-after conversation with a Cicada bug. The latter must be heard; it is just one of the funniest imagined conversation I've ever heard.
In the end, Gould tried to defend some of his more offensive jokes by quoting Morrissey, "It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate, it takes guts to be gentle and kind," before just quickly joking about walking around with your penis out. Of course.
