With former gigs at The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Late Night with Seth Meyers, Michelle Wolf has a stellar comedy resume, and now she’s bringing her unique voice to Netflix with a weekly, half-hour talk show that will focus less on politics and more on funny.
“You can expect the types of jokes my former bosses would tell me we couldn’t do on TV,” Wolf said. The show, which is as yet still untitled, will be executive-produced by Wolf and Daniel Bodansky, with Dan Powell and Christine Nangle as executive producers and showrunners.
Wolf’s show is the latest in a string of unscripted talk show vehicles for comedians on Netflix. Chelsea with Chelsea Handler premiered in 2016, and shows produced for the streaming site also include My Next Guest Needs No Introduction from David Letterman, The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale, A Little Help with Carol Burnett, and the 9th season of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Michelle, a gifted writer and performer with a singular voice,” said Bela Bajaria, Netflix’s vice president of content.
Wolf also debuted a standup special, Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady, on Dec. 2 on HBO.
Wolf’s Netflix show will premiere later this year.
