Buckle up kiddies because Uncle Kurt is releasing a new album! NYC’s own Kurt Metzger is prepped to release a brand new stand-up special, White Precious next month. Metzger recorded the special a few months back and now it’s set to premiere on Comedy Central on July 11th at 11pm. It will also be available on the Comedy Central app the next day on the 12th. If you’re one of those people that doesn’t like to wait, the digital album version of the special will be available on CC: Stand-Up Direct July 7th, four days ahead of the premiere of the special for just $5.
Kurt Metzger is one of our hands down favorite comedians working today, as he’s incredibly funny, highly outspoken, and hardlines social topics that sometimes make him controversial. But more often than not, his viewpoint is pretty spot on. If you need a refresher on Metzger, might we suggest visiting his outstanding debut comedy album, Kurt Metzger Talks To Young People About Sex which made our best of 2011 list. You might also recognize Metzger as the voice of the zombie roommate Randall in the animated series Ugly Americans.
Metzger is also an in-demand writer, he’s currently writing for three different shows like Inside Amy Schumer, Neal Brennan’s upcoming show for Sundance, and a Jim Norton web series for VICE.
Get psyched! Here’s a clip from Metzger’s recent appearance on Dave Attell’s Comedy Underground.
