EXCLUSIVE: Amazon has set Friday, June 5 for the premiere of Gina Brillon: The Floor Is Lava one-hour comedy special, and unveiled a first-look trailer.
In her third stand-up special, Brillon pulls no punches when discussing her childhood, culture and the transition from single to married life with her Midwestern husband as she guides the audience on a journey of love, laughter and heart.

She was selected to be part of Montreal’s Just For Laughs New Faces Showcase.
Brillon is also a singer, published writer, and poet. Her pieces have appeared in The New York Post and Daily News, among others. In 2019, she was featured on Gabriel Iglesias’ “Beyond the Fluffy Tour” – hitting 46 cities around the US. Her most recent half-hour special, Easily Offended, was one of the top shows among the Entre Nos franchise on HBO Latino, and is now streaming on all HBO digital platforms.
