There was a time when it looked like Netflix and Comedy Central were getting into a Jay Leno/David Letterman-esque war, where signing with Netflix would be an act of betrayal to Comedy Central. Those days are long over (or many they never happened at all), because Comedy Central’s most recognizable talent just announced another Netflix special.
Trevor Noah gets out from behind the “Daily Show” desk and takes the stage for a stand-up special that touches on racism, immigration, camping and more.
In the very cute video announcement, Trevor Noah said his new hour, “Son Of Patricia” is coming to Netflix with a premiere date of November 20th. And he announced it by teaming up with a baby in a chicken costume. How does one get a baby in a chicken costume to perform comedy with? That takes $20 and access to Craigslist says Noah.
“Son of Patricia” is Trevor Noah’s fourth comedy special recorded in the states, and his second since he took over the desk at The Daily Show. It’s also his second hour with Netflix; his last hour, “Are You Afraid of the Dark” debuted on the streaming platform in 2017. Prior to that, “Lost in Translation” aired on Comedy Central and was filmed in Washington DC in 2015. Noah’s first American special, “Trevor Noah: African American” aired on Showtime.
