Back in 2013, Sarah Silverman teamed up with fellow comedy notables Michael Cera, Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, and Reggie Watts to launch Jash, a digital comedy with roots on YouTube. Since then, Jash has expanded to encompass everything from long-form shows to branded content, and for its latest project, it is working with its co-founder once again. It will produced Silverman’s upcoming comedy special, which will become available on Netflix on May 30th.
Silverman’s special doesn’t yet have a title, but no matter its theme, it will add the 46-year-old funnywoman to the list of comedians who have released projects exclusively through Netflix. The subscription video platform has shared more than 50 originals in the stand-up comedy world, with big names like Aziz Ansari, Hannibal Burress, and Jash co-founder Reggie Watts contributing sets to the Netflix library.
Jash, which is producing Silverman’s Netflix special alongside Amy Zvi of Thruline, has worked with its co-founder on live projects in the past. A 2014 variety show, Rubberhead, was hosted by Silverman and distributed through Vimeo On Demand.
