Wyatt Cenac returned to Comedy Central's The Daily Show last night to promote his upcoming comedy special, Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn, which premieres on Netflix on Tuesday, October 21. That same day, Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn will be released as a 1,000-piece limited edition vinyl LP via Cenac’s production company, Amalgamated Bear, and distributed by Other Music -- Pre-order LP here

The forthcoming special is entitled “Brooklyn” in part because it was recorded in Brooklyn at Union Hall, a mainstay of the New York comedy scene for the last decade, but also largely due to the fact that Wyatt doesn’t enjoy thinking up titles for things. In it, Wyatt spends his time sharing his observations ranging from the weirdness of adults giving each other hickeys, to watching the neighborhood where his grandmother lived for decades become the backdrop for at least three network sitcoms, a cop drama and probably a reality show about cheesemongers. In keeping with the DIY spirit that has turned Brooklyn into an adjective, Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn is directed by Cenac and features puppets as well as cameos from comedian Eugene Mirman (Bob’s Burgers) and Gbenga Akinnagbe from The Wire. (Scroll down for a short documentary showing the making of the LP, filmed in a record pressing plant Brooklyn.)
