Michelle Wolf Returns to Netflix With Hour Special (Exclusive)
The comic will launch her latest hour, Michelle Wolf: Joke Show, globally on the streaming service Dec. 10. The special, being billed as Wolf wanting "to fight for women's equality ... but not in, like, that annoying way," will explore the differences between men and women and the larger subject of gender equality and explain why society should be a little "less" woke.
Joke Show arrives two years after her first, Nice Lady, which earned raves and an Emmy nomination for rival HBO. Though the latter is still in the stand-up business, it's more focused on emerging talent while Netflix continues to shell out for household names. Wolf, for her part, saw her status soar as a result of her controversial performance as the emcee of the 2018 White House Correspondent's Dinner. During her 19 minutes at the podium, she took swings at several in the White House, most notably then press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. (Sample line: "She's very resourceful. She burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye.")
