Wicked one-liners and soul-baring confessions converge in this uniquely intimate stand-up special 3 Mics from Chappelle’s Show co-creator Neal Brennan.
On last year’s Comedy Meltdown show on Comedy Central, the comics were instructed to try something onstage they’d never done before. Neal Brennan was tired of the monotony of traditional stand-up and had always wanted to try different tones onstage. That night, this show was born. Three microphones are spaced out on the stage and Brennan alternates between them; one for traditional stand-up, one for one-liners, and one for short confessional monologues. And now its been captured in a brand new special for Netflix.
Brennan is a stand-up, writer, actor, director, and producer. In 1995 he was a writer for the dating show Singled Out. Then he collaborated with Chappelle on the screenplay for Half Baked. This relationship resulted in the Chappelle Show for Comedy Central. Since then his credits include Totally Awesome, Attack of the Show!, Inside Amy Schumer, The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, Get Him to the Greek, and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.
