Netflix Orders Two Standup Specials from Gad Elmaleh
French comedian Gad Elmaleh is headed to Netflix with two standup specials — one in French and another in English. The streaming network announced today that it’s ordered two specials from Elmaleh. The first, performed mostly in French, is called Gad Gone Wild. Here’s more from the press release:
In Gad Gone Wild, Gad uses personal experiences as a Frenchie in the US to highlight cultural differences with his very singular humor between both countries. Built upon the jokes that made him famous when he started to perform overseas, Gad mixes English, French and Arab and entertains the audience with absurd situations he experienced and still is today in his daily life in the US.
Gad Gone Wild will make its Netflix premiere on Tuesday, January 24th, 2017. The English standup special will hit the streaming network sometime later in the year.
