Amy Schumer’s Netflix Standup ‘Leather Special’ Gets First Trailer
Netflix has been on a whirlwind pickup of A-list comedians for its flourishing standup stable, and some of the bigger additions are finally coming out to play. See for yourself in Amy Schumer’s first trailer for her Netflix debut, as the Snatched star deeply regrets the premise behind The Leather Special.
Shot in November at the Denver, Colorado Bellco Theater, Amy Schumer: The Leather Special will officially hit Netflix on Tuesday, March 7. The first trailer sees Schumer poking fun at her famous Annie Leibowitz nude photo, as well as the apparently poor choice to wear leather for a full standup special.
So reads the synopsis:
Emmy and Peabody Award-winning comedian Amy Schumer targets binge drinking, her relationship with her boyfriend and navigating the unknown terrain of being a newly famous woman who looks like someone you grew up with. Schumer also directed The Leather Special, which was filmed at Denver’s Bellco Theater.
Schumer’s special joins Netflix’s major push into comedy specials over the last few months, including a three-part showcase with Dave Chappelle, and similar high-profile comedy deals for Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan, Louis C.K., Sarah Silverman, Jerry Seinfeld (including Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee), Joe Rogan, Dana Carvey, Michael Che, Gabriel Iglesias, Reggie Watts and Colin Quinn.
We’ll likely have a clip to show over the next week, so stay tuned for the latest from Amy Schumer: The Leather Special.
