Tues 1/17: Neal Brennan: 3 Mics (Netflix)
Not every comedy fan may recognize Neal Brennan’s name, but they should. This man was instrumental in the creation and writing of David Chappelle’s incredibly popular Comedy Central sketch series. He was also there helping when Chappelle delivered his moving Saturday Night Live monologue. Now his new stand-up special 3 Mics, which he honed while performing to live audiences in Los Angeles and New York, lands on Netflix as part of their new comedy push. The show features Brennan alternating between three different microphones on stage to throw out jokes of different kinds, yet all are assuredly hilarious.
