Brett Gelman's 'Dinner with Friends' Is One of the Darkest and Funniest Things on TV

Adult Swim has long been committed to airing some of the most innovative, writer-driven comedies on TV, and that trend continues with Dinner with Friends with Brett Gelman and Friends, a half-hour one-off special from comedian Brett Gelman and director Jason Woliner that debuts tonight at midnight on the network. Gelman and Woliner have been collaborating for years now, most recently on the Adult Swim's show Eagleheart, which Woliner co-writes and directs and Gelman acts on, and with Dinner with Friends, they've created something that's every bit as funny, dark, and fast-paced as Eagleheart is, and something completely unlike anything else on television.

Watch a Trailer for Brett Gelman's New Adult Swim Special

Last week, Adult Swim announced that they're premiering a new special called Dinner with Friends with Brett Gelman and Friends that Brett Gelman and Jason Woliner (Eagleheart) made together, and here's a teaser trailer for the special. It's a Dinner for Five-esque conversation show (featuring guests Dale Dickey, Gilbert Gottfried, Fred Melamed, Alison Pill, Lance Reddick, and Alex Karpovsky) that takes a frightening turn and devolves into Gelman psychologically torturing his guests.
