Netflix is out of control right now, snapping up stand-up specials from legends like Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, and Louis CK left and right, with new announcements coming every day. The latest beloved comic to sign on with the streaming service? Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan.
Netflix will exclusively stream Morgan’s new special, Staying Alive, starting on May 16th.
Here’s what you can expect:
Tracy Morgan’s “Staying Alive” finds the comedy icon exploring his fresh take on life, career and mortality in the wake of surviving a devastating near-fatal traffic collision in 2014. From coping with a traumatic brain injury and learning to walk again to “falling for” his physical therapist and deciding that maybe getting older isn’t such a bad thing, Morgan is back in true form and tackles the most trying time of his life with grace, strength and the jaw-droppingly hilarious point of view fans have grown to love.
Just this week, Netflix announced upcoming hours from Amy Schumer, Jim Norton, Felipe Neto, and Jo Koy; six LA tapings, taking place next week, with Nate Bargatze, Beth Stelling, Fortune Feimster, Deon Cole, Nikki Glaser, and Dan Soder; and two new specials from Louis CK.
