Netflix Takes ‘Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn’ Stand Up Comedy Special to Premiere October 21

Netflix Takes 'Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn' Stand Up Comedy Special to Premiere October 21

Netflix will premiere “Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn,” stand-up comedian Wyatt Cenac’s sophomore comedy special, on Tuesday, October 21 in all territories where Netflix 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 Other Music.

The special is 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, but also largely due to the fact that Wyatt doesn’t enjoy thinking up titles for things. In it, Wyatt spends his time sharing his 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. In keeping with the DIY spirit that has turned Brooklyn into an adjective, “Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn” is directed by Cenac and features puppets as well as cameos from comedian Eugene Mirman (“Bob’s Burgers”) and Gbenga Akinnagbe from “The Wire.”

Cenac will also embark on a coast-to-coast U.S. comedy tour, “Wyatt Cenac Live in Brooklyn in ___(insert city name here)___,” on October 21 in support of the special in the following 12 cities:
