Chappelle’s Show co-creator Neal Brennan is taking multitasking to a whole new level in his new Netflix special, 3 Mics, which features the comedian switching between — you guessed it — three different microphones symbolizing three different styles of comedy.

One is for traditional stand-up, another is for one-liners, and the third is for short confessional monologues, or what the trailer calls “emotional stuff.” Sound a bit tough? He’s had some practice: Brennan performed 3 Mics off-Broadway in 2016 — and even got the stamp of approval from John Legend, who produced the show.

Along with co-creating Chappelle’s Show, Brennan’s credits also include co-writing 1998 stoner comedy Half Baked (which starred Dave Chappelle) and, more recently, directing multiple episodes of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer.
