Sean Patton is about to drop a new stand-up comedy special and he’s doing it for the folks at Peacock. The network just announced today that Patton’s latest Number One will be released on the streamer starting Friday December 2nd. Bill as a “stand-up comedy event” the special was filmed in Patton’s hometown of New Orleans in one of the city’s most popular venues, the legendary Tipitina’s.
The 90-minute special explores everything from Patton’s obsessive-compulsive disorder to his madhouse of an upbringing and the broken, yet unbreakable bonds of his family. A dive into the veteran comedians’ personal life and the experiences that made him who he is today. Patton stated “This special is pure, uncut, me. Specifically, the humiliating underbelly of my being. I wear it all like a badge of honor. A one-man army of buffoonery. I couldn’t be more excited to share it with the world and I’m grateful to this whole team for helping me do it.”
Erik Abrams directed Number One who has directed more than a few comedy projects (Ari Shaffir Jew, Matt Braunger Doug, This Is Not Happening) in addition to another big name attached to the project in executive producer Michael Che who stated, “Sean Patton is one of my favorite comedians to watch perform. He’s incredibly original, thoughtful, and doesn’t let fear get in the way of his truth. I’m very excited and thankful to work with Peacock in sharing this special with their subscribers, and I hope we can do more.” Patton also brought in the production team at 800 Pound Gorilla who worked with him on his previous releases in addition to a litany of other comedy albums and specials.
