This week in comedy, one of the most prolific comedians we have working today is back with his latest special. Jim Gaffigan: The Pale Tourist consists of two brand new specials that brings Gaffigan to Toronto, Canada and Barcelona, Spain. In the trailer, we saw him talk about why nobody wants to be called a tourist, where the best audiences are, and winter sports in Canada.
Also this week, British comedian Jack Whitehall has his latest Netflix special. While he’s not a big name here in the states, the fact that his new special was done at Wembley Stadium should tell you everything you need to know. People who do know him here would best know him for his series, Bad Education. Jack Whitehall: I’m Only Joking comes out on Tuesday July 21st.
Plus, we see the return of two popular comedy series. First up is Corporate. The Comedy Central series is coming back for its third and final season. And as there’s many people who are still working from home right now, this will probably serve as a good reminder about what you’re not missing at the office. And then Tacoma FD is also coming back for the second part of their second season on TruTV. Created by and starring Broken Lizard’s Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme, the series serves as a glimpse into what goes on at a fire station when there’s no fires to put out.
And finally, this week also sees the release of Sarah Tollemache’s debut comedy album Voluptuous Boy. Put out on our TLB record label, the album was recorded back on March 8th, literally days before everything changed and came to a halt. And now we’re finally happy to have it coming out Tuesday July 21st. The album can be pre-ordered here.
