Over & Over, a Comedy Special Documentary

Iliza has 4 Netflix specials so it makes her the perfect person to make a documentary about everything that goes into recording these specials. She teamed up with Comedy Dynamic to bring us Over & Over, showing how she prepared for the recording of her most recent special, Elder Millennial. If you watch closely you get a glimpse of Iliza on our Comedy Works South stage. Available July 2nd on iTunes, Amazon Prime, Google Play, and more.

Iliza thanks her fans by saying “We created something special for the fans, new and old, as a way to say thank you for always being there and supporting me. Words cannot express my gratitude to them for always showing up. Over and Over is as much about them as it is about me.”

Steve Simeone’s Jabba

Steve Simeone started coming to Comedy Works with Ari Shaffir so it is so cool to hear this discussion between these 2 favorites of the club. It is even more exciting to hear how much they love us. The club that comes to mind first is Comedy Works Downtown. Maybe next time they decide to record they will grace us with honor. If you have haven’t heard this album, you need to. No one has praising the dad material like Steve Simeone. Two one of a kind comics talk comedy and recording an album, is there anything better?!

Lights Out with David Spade

David Spade’s new late show is premiering July 29th. Lights Out with David Spade will take the prime show spot after The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. You can’t tell much from the promo video that Comedy Central put up but we anticipate a light hearted, silly take on pop culture with appearances from Spade’s funny comedian and celebrity friends. Leaving the political humor to The Daily Show, Lights Out could be a nice change of pace for the audience. Make sure you tune in or set it up to record. You will not want to miss it!
