  • Hold on tight, Kumail Nanjiani’s ‘Beta Male’ is coming out this month to save us!

    Beta MaleIn front of a live audience in Austin, Texas, Kumail Nanjiani explains why he is not an alpha male but is no less than a Beta Male. July 20th at midnight, you’ll be able to hear all this beta male has to offer thanks to Comedy Central. Get prepared as Kumail taps into some of his biggest fears, including a cobra fighting a mongoose at a kid’s birthday party. Hooked yet? How about a adult film getting stuck in a VCR during a power outage or perhaps hearing about the time Kumail investigated some strange sounds coming from his attic.

    You can hear it all straight from the beta male’s mouth on July 20th. You’re out of town on the 20th and cannot watch it? Fear not! The CD/DVD combo will be released July 23rd that will include a post show audience Q&A. Of course the special will also be released on those newfangled digital devices like iTunes, Xbox Video, Amazon Instant Video, and Sony Entertainment Network.

    If your not familiar with Kumail, here’s some quick facts on his recent past. Nanjiani is a Los Angeles-based writer and performer who has been featured in Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch,” The Hollywood Reporter’s “10 Rising Comedy Talents” and New York Magazine’s “10 Comedians that Funny People Find Funny.” He first gained attention for his critically acclaimed one-man show Unpronounceable, directed by Paul Provenza, and has performed stand-up on Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Late Show with David Letterman, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. You might also know him from his frequent podcasting or the news of the greenlighting of his new TV series.

    So get some pizza, popcorn, or whatever you watch with comedy specials and plant your touché on the couch on July 20th. It’s going to be a fun night.
