Netflix Sets Wyatt Cenac Comedy Special

Netflix will debut Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn, a comedy special of former Daily Show correspondent Wyatt Cenac, on Tuesday, October 21 in all territories where the streaming service is available. That same day, Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn will be released as a 1,000 piece limited edition vinyl LP via Cenac’s production company, Amalgamated Bear, and distributed by record stores Other Music.

The special, entitled Brooklyn in part because it was recorded in Brooklyn at Union Hall, a mainstay of the New York comedy scene for the last decade, reflects Wyatt’s observations ranging from the weirdness of adults giving each other hickeys, to watching the neighborhood where his grandmother lived for decades become the backdrop for at least three network sitcoms, a cop drama and probably a reality show about cheesemongers. Cenac directed the special, which features puppets as well as cameos from comedian Eugene Mirman (Bob’s Burgers) and Gbenga Akinnagbe (The Wire). Cenac will also embark on a 12-city U.S. comedy tour, on October 21 in support of the special. He has projects in development with AMC and BBC America and can next be seen in David Cross’ film Hits, which premiered at Sundance earlier this year.
