This week in comedy: We have two new stand-up specials to pick us up. First up is George Lopez: We’ll Do it for Half. The special, which comes out on Tuesday, marks the comedian’s first special on Netflix and his first special since 2017’s George Lopez: The Wall. Following that, Hannibal Buress has his new special coming out. Unlike his previous specials, Buress has decided to go the independent distribution route, and release his special directly onto his YouTube channel for free. Hannibal Buress: Miami Nights comes out on Friday.
Also this week, there’s another remake of a beloved 80’s movie. Announced only a few days ago, and filmed entirely in quarantine, The Princess Bride is getting a remake on Quibi and is out now. The stellar cast includes Neil Patrick Harris, Tiffany Haddish, Hugh Jackman, Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner, Common, Andy Serkis, Keegan-Michael Key, Taika Waititi, Elijah Wood, Jon Hamm, Zazie Beetz, Patton Oswalt, and Jack Black. And the fact that it’s directed by Jason Reitman means we’ll definitely at least give this one a chance.
