Chris Gethard’s powerful one-man show Career Suicide is heading to HBO this spring, the comedian announced on Twitter.
Career Suicide features Gethard talking about his depression, his relationship with his wacky-but-well-intentioned therapist, and the times he considered killing himself. The show recently wrapped up a three-month run at New York’s Lynn Redgrave Theater, and he returned to the city Feb. 11 to film the special.
“Laughs, feels, intense oversharing,” he said in his tweet announcing the intial news. “THANK YOU to all who supported me + made this happen.”
Gethard got his start at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade, where comedy heavyweights including Amy Poehler and Kate McKinnon also made their name. He went on to host the public access show The Chris Gethard Show and the Beautiful/Anonymous podcast, and he’s appeared in series including The Office and Broad City.
Career Suicide debuts on HBO May 6. See Gethard’s tweets above.
