Jeff Garlin is getting his first ever stand up special and it’s with Netflix.
“November 12th,” Garlin said in his announcement on his Instagram page. “That’s when my Netflix special debuts and it’ll run til the end of time. Because that’s what happens on Netflix. I want you to watch it but at your leisure. Whenever you wanna watch it. Just watch it.”
“Filmed in his hometown, Chicago,” said Netflix in their statement, “And on the 37th anniversary – to the day – of his comedy debut, the one-hour special is ripe with Garlin’s signature blend of storytelling and improv. The comedian takes viewers on a stroll down memory lane, with some detours into the personal lives of the audience, a few hours in jail and enough donuts to last a lifetime.”
Garlin is perhaps best known for his roles on Curb your Enthusiasm and The Goldbergs. He has a background in sketch and improv, and within the past few years, has been touring much more frequently as a stand up as well. We can’t wait to see where all those years in comedy have taken him!
Jeff Garlin: Our Man in Chicago is slated to drop on November 12th.
