Louis C.K.’s replacing his trademark black T-shirt with something a little fancier for his next Netflix special: a suit, which he puts on in the new trailer, premiering exclusively here.

The special, titled Louis C.K. 2017, is C.K.’s first special since 2015’s Live at the Comedy Storeavailable for $5 on his website, and one of two he’s set to make for Netflix

“Louis has been one of the most innovative comedy voices in this new era of stand-up,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, previously said in a statement. “He has also been a thought leader in the business of comedy. We have marveled at his creativity and his ability to invent comedically and commercially, and are thrilled that he is bringing his newest specials to Netflix.”

Aside from stand-up, C.K. has also been active in the television world lately as the co-creator of FX’s Baskets and Better Things and an executive producer on Tig Notaro’s Amazon series One Mississippi. And last year, he debuted Horace and Pete, a show he created, wrote, directed, and starred in.

C.K. is one of several high-profile comedians to take their specials to Netflix this year. Dave Chappelle and Amy Schumer both released new material on the streaming service earlier this month, and the lineup for the rest of 2017 includes Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock.

See the trailer for C.K.’s special above, and watch the whole thing when it premieres April 4.
