Villanova born and raised comedian Neal Brennan has booked a comedy special with Netflix, filming an adaptation of his off-Broadway show. Penn grad John Legend will serve as producer.
Brennan, a stand up and performer, is largely known for his work as a writer, director, and producer. He cocreated Chapelle's Show with Dave Chappelle and has helmed episodes of Inside Amy Schumer, The Mindy Project and New Girl.
Brennan has just booked a Netflix special, where he'll film his skewed comedy special, 3 Mics.
Netflix describes it thusly:
Director, writer and comedian Neal Brennan is reimagining the hour-long comedy special with his acclaimed show 3 Mics -- his first for Netflix. In a break from classic stand-up comedy, 3 Mics sees Brennan alternating between three separate microphones: one for traditional stand-up; one for one-liners; and one for short confessional monologues, covering everything from managing his depression to his difficult relationship with his father. The show is fresh off a successful off-Broadway run in NYC, with superstar musician John Legend serving as Producer.
The special premieres Jan. 17 on Netflix.
