Five new comedy stand-up specials have been dated.
Netflix has announced premiere dates for several new original stand-up specials. The comedy lineup includes Ali Wong, Bo Burnham, Jeff Foxworthy with Larry The Cable Guy, Jim Jefferies and Iliza Shlesinger.
'Ali Wong: Baby Cobra' (May 6) - Unapologetic and nasty mom-to-be Ali Wong desperately wanted a conventional life. Baby Cobra is Wong's hilarious journey of how hard she worked to find Mr. Perfect, get married, buy a house and have a baby. But it all didn't exactly turn out how she planned. And while Wong complains that feminism is the worst thing that's ever happened to women, what's more empowering than being the first and only comic to film a 1-hour stand up special 7-months pregnant?
'Bo Burnham: Make Happy' (June 3) - Bo Burnham delivers a dizzying blend of stand-up, music, and theatre in this hilarious and wholly originally comedy special, filmed at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York.
'Jim Jefferies: Freedumb' (July 1) - Jim Jefferies’ second Netflix special, “Jim Jefferies: Freedumb” unleashes his signature, unapologetic take on a variety of topics that range from personal stories including how he is coping with fatherhood to political and social commentary about religion, freedom and even Bill Cosby. “Freedumb" was recorded in front of a sold out audience at Nashville’s James Polk Theater.
'Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy: We’ve Been Thinking…' (August 26) - Grammy Award-nominated stand-up comedians Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy take the stage to bring their distinctive brand of comedy to a sold out crowd at the historic Orpheum Theater in Minneapolis. The show features solo performances by both comedians, as well as a show stopping encore as the pair comes together for an audience Q&A.
'Iliza Shlesinger: Confirmed Kills' (September 23) - Filming April 23 at The Vic in Chicago, IL, smart, straight talking Iliza Shlesinger returns to Netflix with her 2nd original special, serving up her fearless and fresh brand of comedy that speaks to everyone.
