ASPECIALTHING RECORDS announced the release of Wyatt Cenac’s new comedy album Furry Dumb Fighter which is available February 26. This is the follow up to Wyatt’s second stand-up special, Brooklyn, which he also directed and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Comedy Album. Furry Dumb Fighter was recorded live in Madison, WI and finds Wyatt in top form as he talks subway preachers, custom hashtags, Black History Month and the stylings of the Confederate flag. The new album will also be available on vinyl later this summer. Here are two clips to check out in advance of the release:
In addition this Spring, Wyatt will host the digital series Night Train with Wyatt Cenac, which will premiere on NBCUniversal’s comedy-focused subscription-video service SeeSo. From 2008 to 2012, Wyatt was a writer and popular correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart where he earned 3 Emmy Awards and one WGA award. He also spent three seasons writing for FOX’s King of the Hill. On the big screen, Wyatt has appeared in the mockumentary Jacqueline (Argentine), which screened at Sundance in early 2016, Mike Birbiglia’s acclaimed film Sleepwalk With Me, and David Cross’ feature Hits, among others. He also served as Executive Producer alongside Jay-Z on the feature An Oversimplification of Her Beauty, which screened at Sundance in 2012 to rave reviews.
Wyatt’s other credits include BoJack Horseman, Maron, The Eric Andre Show, Conan, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and Last Call with Carson Daly. Wyatt hosts the hugely popular weekly stand up show Night Train at Littlefield in Brooklyn, performs to sold-out crowds across the globe and festivals including Bumbershoot, SXSW, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Bonnaroo and the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival.
Wyatt also appeared on Conan last night to tell us about his Grammy experience wasn’t exactly a night of glitz & glamour as well as his recent red carpet confusion. Cenac thought he was seeing Tangerines, a tense war-time drama. Turns out he was about to watch Tangerine, a trans comedy. Here are the clips:
