“As a comedian, actress, writer, director, producer, and best-selling author, Amy Schumer is a boundless threat and a one-of-a-kind talent,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited that she’s making Netflix her home for her next stand-up comedy special.”

The currently untitled special, filmed Nov. 5 in Denver, will premiere Tuesday, March 7 on Netflix.
