We’ve got trailers for three upcoming comedy shows that will surely get your mind off of current events for a bit. First up is the trailer for the new Jerry Seinfeld standup special, Jerry Seinfeld: 23 Hours to Kill, which will launch on Netflix globally on May 5th.
Jerry Seinfeld’s new hour-long special reinforces his reputation as the precision-craftsman of standup comedy. The special features a spectacular arrival to the Beacon Theatre in New York City, and showcases Seinfeld’s sharp angles on everyday life, uncovering comedy in the commonplace. You can watch the previously-released teaser here.
In addition to the Jerry Seinfeld standup, we’ve got the trailer for the second season of Hulu‘s critically-acclaimed comedy series Ramy, starring Golden Globe Award winner Ramy Youssef! All 10 episodes of Ramy season two premiere on Friday, May 29th on Hulu.
Ramy follows first-generation, Egyptian-American Ramy Hassan (Youssef), who is on a spiritual journey in his politically-divided New Jersey neighborhood. Ramy brings a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like to be caught between a religious community who believes life is a moral test, and a millennial generation that doubts an afterlife even exists. In the second season, Ramy delves further into his spiritual journey, finding a new Muslim community and embracing a deeper commitment to his faith.
Alongside Youssef, the new season will star two-time Academy Award and Golden Globe Award-winner Mahershala Ali. The series also features Mohammed Amer, Hiam Abbass, Amr Waked, May Calamawy, Dave Merheje, Laith Nakli and Steve Way.
Ramy is written, executive produced, created by and starring Ramy Youssef, executive produced by A24’s Ravi Nandan, co-creators Ari Katcher and Ryan Welch, Jerrod Carmichael, and produced by A2.
And on June 11th, we’re also getting the Ryan Reynolds-executive produced Don’t comedic physical game show hosted by Adam Scott (Big Little Lies). In Don’t, contestants are given the opportunity to team up with their family and friends for the chance to win a cash prize of up to $100,000 by tackling hilarious tasks, each with the simple rule: “DON’T.”
“I’m excited for people to see ‘Don’t’ and feel we made the right call in changing what was the working title: ‘Please Do Not,’” said Adam Scott.
In each episode, members of a four-person team strive to accomplish various challenges, such as “Don’t Blink,” “Don’t Look Back” and “Don’t Play Ball in the House,” as they work together to build their bank. If they fail a challenge, they don’t earn money and suffer ridiculous consequences. Along the way, they’ll have the choice to take risks by pushing the Don’t Push Button or taking a chance on a Don’t You Dare, You. In the end, whatever money they have left in their bank – if anything – is theirs to keep. The series is voiced by Ryan Reynolds and features hilarious, unexpected moments that break from the traditional game show format.
Produced by Banijay Studios North America, Don’t is executive produced by Ryan Reynolds, David Goldberg, Caroline Baumgard, David Hurwitz, Conrad Green and George Dewey. The Don’t format is distributed internationally by Banijay Rights.
