2017 has been a milestone year for comedy special releases. Some of the biggest names in the world of stand-up comedy — Sarah Silverman, Bill Burr, T.J. Miller and Tracy Morgan to name a few — have already dropped hour-long specials. That said, September is shaping up to be a blowout month with more than half a dozen comedy hour-longs set to premiere.
Marc Maron will kick things off with the release of his latest special Too Real on Netflix on Sept. 5. The streaming giant will then break from its traditional Tuesday release schedule to drop Joaquin Reyes’ new hour-long Una y no más on Sept. 8, marking the VOD service’s first Spanish comedy show.
Showtime recently confirmed a premiere date of Sept. 8 for Gary Owen: I Got My Associates while Seeso, who sadly announced not long ago they will be shutting their doors later this year, previously set a debut date (now uncertain) of Sept. 14 for the Sklar Brothers: Hipster Ghosts.
Jeff Dunham will drop his special Relative Disaster on Netflix on Sept. 12 followed by — arguably the biggest comedy special debut since Dave Chappelle’s double release earlier this year — Jerry Seinfeld’s Jerry Before Seinfeld, which hits the VOD service Sept. 19. Anjelah Johnson’s new hour-long Mahalo & Goodnight (Sept. 29) on Epix and Felipe Esparza’s highly-anticipated special Translate This (Sept. 30) on HBO will round out the month.
