Comedy lovers, this week is packed with exciting news from the world of comedy! From Louis CK's return to Madison Square Garden to Roseanne Barr's comeback with a brand-new special, there's something for everyone. Let's dive into the details.
First up, we have the film with Andrew Schultz called "You People", which was released on Netflix on January 20th. This movie features an all-star cast of comedians including Andrew Schultz, Eddie Murphy, Jonah Hill, Sam J from SNL, and Elaine from Seinfeld. The film follows Jonah Hill's character who is a white man marrying into a black family and Eddie Murphy's character who plays the disapproving father. Andrew Schultz plays one of Jonah Hill's old friends in the film and is known for being pretty funny on camera. This film is a must-watch for anyone who loves comedy and enjoys a good laugh.
On Saturday, the Louis CK Back at the Garden live stream Pay-Per-View event took place, and it was worth the wait! The show was approximately two hours long and included performances by Sean Fish, Adrian Lapalucci, and special guest jazz musician Ravi Coltrane. Louis CK himself didn't come on stage until about 50 minutes into the show, but it was well worth the wait. His unique and comical take on simple premises like religion, homeless people, and abortion is truly a masterful display of comedy.
If you missed the live stream, you can still purchase replay tickets on Louis CK's website until February 17th for $25.
In the world of podcasts, there were some rare appearances by comedians such as Bill Burr, Roseanne Barr, Louis CK, and many more. Last week, the Harland Highway had Bill Burr as its guest, and this week, Roseanne Barr is making her return to comedy with a brand new special titled "Roseanne Barr: Cancel This", which will debut on Monday, February 13th on Fox Nation.
There are also some new stand-up specials that have recently been released or are coming soon. Nate Bargatze's "Hello World" came out today on Prime Video, and the channel will be releasing a video reacting to the special later this week. Other comedians such as Jordan Peterson, Bobby Lee, Stavros Halkias, Trevor Wallace, and more were also guests on various podcasts.
