This Week in Comedy: Netflix is releasing season two of Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready. This time around, Haddish has recruited some of her favorite black comedians for the show. Comics include Dean Edwards, Godfrey, Kimberly Clark, Tony Woods, Erin Jackson, Barbara Carlyle, and Erin Jackson. “This season I purposely made sure everybody was black,” Haddish started at the end of the trailer. “Because I’m black.” Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready returns on Tuesday.
Also this week, the Impractical Jokers are back for season nine on TruTV. And as has been the case since 2017, that also means new episodes immediately following the main show of Impractical Jokers After Party. Season nine had initially began filming last spring, before being shut down due to COVID. But judging by the trailer, they somehow still found a way to make their same pranks work, even socially distanced. Impractical Jokers comes back Thursday at 10 PM ET.
And finally, Rhea Butcher has a new album out titled Pull Yourself Up By Your Bootleg on ASpecialThing Records. On the album, Butcher talks about “their experiences with everything from gender pronouns to puppy training, getting confounding parental advice to their love of gummies and more.” The album comes out on Friday, but you can pre-order it here.
Season 9 coming in hot hot hot. 🔥 New jokes, same guys and even bigger laughs. Tune-in for the season premiere of #ImpracticalJokers February 4 at 10/9C on @truTV! @BQQuinn @SalVulcano @Joe_Gatto @jamessmurray pic.twitter.com/bqWN5Co4Fp
