December brings a triple threat of great New York City comics delivering outstanding stand up specials so clear out the week. We already announced Jessica Kirson’s special drops December 6 on Comedy Central, and on December 10th, Michelle Wolf is hitting Netflix.
Saturday night, right smack in the middle of those two female power performers comes and HBO comedy special debut from New York City’s own Dan Soder. And we couldn’t be more excited.
DAN SODER: SON OF A GARY, his First HBO Comedy Special, debuts December 7, Exclusively On HBO. You know him from Showtime’s Billions, Netflix’s The Stand Ups, and you adore him as your daily co-counselor on SiriusXM’s the Bonfire. If you’re not excited to see what Soder is bringing to HBO’s table, then what are you doing reading a comedy website?
Taped last month at The Bowery Ballroom in New York City before a sold-out, live audience, that happened to include some of the greatest comedians on the planet. They didn’t want to miss it live, so you definitely don’t want to miss it on tv. Dan’s first HBO comedy hour showcases his down to earth approach to material that affects his life on every level. Topics include drug dogs at the airport, the customer service generation, fake fights in the shower, and what it’s like to have an alcoholic dad, but a fun one.
New York City based comedian and actor Dan Soder is best known for his role as Mafee on “Billions.” His comedy specials include “The Standups” and his 2016 first hour-long special, “Not Special.” Other credits include “Half Hour,” “Inside Amy Schumer” and “@midnight.” Soder also hosts Sirius XM’s “The Bonfire with Big Jay Oakerson” every Monday through Thursday on Comedy Central Radio.
