Exclusive: Chris Gethard has a new special coming out.
The comedian, who is best known as host of the popular unground hit The Chris Gethard Show and has been keeping busy lately with his acclaimed podcast Beautiful Stories From Anonymous People, has partnered up with Comedy Dynamics, who will distribute his new hour sometime later this year.
Titled Chris Gethard: Half My Life, it was shot in various comedy clubs all throughout the country. Half My Life “highlights Chris’s unique storytelling talent, as well as all the ups and downs that come with life on the road. Also, alligators.” The special was directed by Kate Sweeney and produced by Lexi Tannenholtz.
“I’m very excited to work with Comedy Dynamics in bringing Half My Life to the world. Not only do I get to share some of my idiotic stories, I get to show the viewers some of the grimy venues that support underground comedy. Plus I almost get killed and eaten at the end. I’m pretty sure this is the only comedy special in history that can claim that,” said Chris Gethard.
“Chris is incredibly talented across many different mediums, and anytime you can work with an artist as hard working and creative as him, it’s usually a successful release for everyone. We’re excited to be sharing his new special with the world,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, Founder and CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
This marks the second special we’ve seen from Gethard. His first special, Career Suicide, was released on HBO in 2017. No word yet on when we can be expecting this one, other than it will be sometime in 2021. Stay tuned!
