“My gamble is that people want real comedy,” comedian Andrew Schulz posted on his Instagram last night, with the announcement of his comedy special Infamous, available now for pre-order on his website.
Schulz has taken the decision to skip the streaming platforms after he was asked to censor it. “So long story short,” he explained, “the original streamer refused to air the special without cutting several jokes. I took my f*cking life savings and I bought my special back… I think they (the audience) would prefer that than some watered-down, corporate boardroom b*llshit.”
Schulz elaborated in a video shared on his Twitter account, “I feel that way because I perform in front of thousands of people every single night and they really to really enjoy these jokes that are too offensive or could cause too much backlash. So, that’s my gamble. I think people like real authentic comedy.”
Infamous—The Special will release on 17 July 2022 on theandrewschulz.com/.
