Michael Ian Black's acerbic style has been a staple of the comedy world for years. Though he spends a lot of time acting in projects like Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp and The Jim Gaffigan Show, plus writing children's books like A Pig Parade Is a Terrible Idea and A Child's First Book of Trump, he recently recorded his first new stand-up special in five years.
Premiering Friday, May 13 on EPIX at 10/9c, Michael Ian Black: Noted Expert will touch on topics including gender roles, parenting and politics. "Some of these jokes are about my family, and at their expense. A lot of the jokes are at my expense," he says, adopting a grin and proceeding, "and then, some of the jokes are about abortion."
Filmed at John Jay College in Manhattan, Michael Ian Black: Noted Expert will play on EPIX and EPIX.com all weekend, which happens to be a free preview weekend for the channel.
