Later this month, streaming giant and modern comedy hub Netflix will bring the laughs to its worldwide audience of over 100 million subscribers with the debut of Brian Regan’s latest stand-up special Nunchucks and Flamethrowers. Giving fans a tiny taste of what’s to come is the hour-long’s recently-released trailer, which sees Regan riffing on tennis terminology, the power of “good dads” and Kim Jong Un’s take on sarcasm.
Though it’s tough to capture the tone, pacing and overall vibe of an hour-long special in a one minute trailer, the above teaser does a fairly decent job stitching together humorous bits to give viewers a sense of what they can expect in Nunchucks and Flamethrowers. The tennis bit is particularly amusing, of course, much thanks to Regan’s delivery. “Tennis is weird. If you don’t have any points you have to say ‘love,’” explains the comedian in the trailer’s opening moments. “You don’t say it like that with other things… like your checking account. Oh no, I’ve got love!”
Regan announced the Nunchucks and Flamethrowers’ premiere date on Twitter back in early October. The hour-long, which was recorded at Denver’s Paramount Theatre in June, marks the first in a pair of Netflix specials for the comedian (a title and debut date for the second have not yet been announced). Among the other topics to be explored in the new special are underwear elastic, board games and hot dogs.
Nunchucks and Flamethrowers is directed by Troy Miller. Stream it exclusively on Netflix on Nov. 21.
