Netflix is really cranking out the exclusive stand-up comedy specials now. Lat month it released trailers for upcoming specials from Aziz Ansari and Russell Peters (whose is accompanied by a docu-series). Now, they’ve posted a clip from the upcoming special from comedian Marc Maron, called Thinky Pain.
The release date for Thinky Pain is unclear. Maron tweeted that it would hit Netflix on October 7th, but the video description on YouTube says it will debut October 21st. I’ve reached out to Netflix and Maron for clarification.
Update: Netflix confirms that it will be released on the 7th.
My special, 'Thinky Pain', premieres Oct. 7th on @netflix. So, there.

Other comedians with stand-up specials launched on Netflix, which are currently available, include: John Hodgman, Rob Schneider, Doug Stanhope, Mike Birbiglia, Kathleen Madigan, Moshe Kasher and Broken Lizard’s Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan.
Earlier this year, Netflix told investors that it would be adding more exclusive stand-up comedy and documentary content. Obviously they’ve been making good on that promise.
Netflix also announced this week that it has acquired the award-winning documentary BrideGroom, which will debut on October 27th.
