Earlier this month, we learned that Netflix was readying an exclusive stand-up comedy special from Russell Peters called Notorious. It was reported that this would debut on October 14th along with a four-part docu-series following Peters on tour. This can all be confirmed now as Netflix has released a trailer for both the special and the series. The trailer confirms the release date as well.
In case you haven’t noticed, Netflix has cranked up the dial on comedy content, and is now putting out quite a few exclusive specials from stand-up comedians. Currently available specials include those from John Hodgman, Rob Schneider, Doug Stanhope, Mike Birbiglia, Kathleen Madigan, Moshe Kasher and Broken Lizard’s Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan.
Also on the menu are specials from Aziz Ansari, Marc Maron and others I’m sure.
The Peters special is 70 minutes long, according to Deadline. It and the series will both be available in all countries where Netflix is available.
Netflix currently has two other Russell Peters stand-up titles available for streaming.
While it’s not a stand-up special, and really it’s as sad as it is funny, Netflix launched another exclusive comedy offering earlier this month with the Ricky Gervais show Derek:
