Comedy Night: Wyatt Cenac with Violet Gray
Event Type: comedy
Armed with an “attentive, inquisitive perspective” (AV Club) and a “hilariously understated style” (Paste Magazine), Wyatt Cenac has become a favorite of audiences and critics alike.
On June 30th, 2016, Night Train with Wyatt Cenac premiered on NBCUniversal’s comedy-focused subscription-video service SeeSo. The digital series, based on the popular long-running weekly Brooklyn stage show, is a freewheeling mix of stand-up, music and other surprises, where anything can happen and anything is welcome. Night Train with Wyatt Cenac captures the amazing talent and spontaneity that has made the live show a staple of the New York comedy scene for the past three years. Wyatt hosts and executive produces the show.
On February 26th, 2016, A Special Thing Records released Wyatt’s third comedy album Furry Dumb Fighter. Wyatt’s second-hour stand-up special, Brooklyn, which he also directed, premiered on Netflix in October 2014. The special was also released as a limited edition vinyl-only album of the same title on Other Music, which was nominated for a 2015 Grammy for Best Comedy Album. The TV hour was listed as one of the “11 Best Standup Specials of 2014” by Vulture and was praised as “some of his best, funniest insights” by The AV Club. Wyatt’s first-hour special Comedy Person premiered on Comedy Central in May 2011, earning him a spot on Paste Magazine’s “Best Comedians” list of that year. The album of the special was named one of the “Best Comedy Albums of 2011” by Huffington Post.
Wyatt stars in the TBS ensemble alien abduction comedy series, People of Earth, alongside Alice Wetterlund and Ana Gasteyer. People of Earth is directed by Greg Daniels (The Office, Parks and Recreation) and produced by Conaco in association with Warner Horizon Television.
