A while back, we broke the news that Chris Gethard partnered up with Comedy Dynamics to release what is described as a “hybrid tour documentary and stand-up special shot in a variety of DIY spaces and independent venues.” And now the special, titled Half My Life, has its first trailer.
In the trailer, we see Gethard playing a 9AM stand-up gig that also serves pancakes, balancing spending time with his kid and life on the road, and what appears to be performing with a bunch of alligators at Gatorland in Florida. That must be a first for a comedy special, we imagine. From the looks of it, it seems like Gethard is providing a good-sized glimpse into what it’s like to be a comic both onstage and off, in traditional and untraditional venues. Plus, a soundtrack that features Jawbreaker, Bad Moves, Jeff Rosenstock, and more.
The special premieres June 1st (with the accompanying album following June 4th available on Spotify and Amazon Music) on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Pluto TV, Peacock, and wherever else you get your Comedy Dynamics specials.
