Matt Braunger wants you to wonder: Can an idiot also be a comic genius? Braunger’s new hour-long stand-up special Finally Live in Portland will hopefully answer the question for you on February 5.
The MADtv star puts out his third comedy special, recorded in a former porno theatre called The Paris. It’s the Portland thing to do. Finally Live in Portland is talking about naked old men, drunk Nazis, anal surgery, and the Girl Scouts. It’s exactly what you want to talk about in front of everyone you grew up with.
“This is my best special yet, and I got to shoot it in my hometown in front of my parents and embarrass them as a bonus,” Braunger said in a press release. The special “basically represents two things, 1) 18 years of me doing comedy, and 2) How much I haven’t grown in that time.”
Finally Live in Portland is being released by Comedy Dynamics, a major player in the stand-up special scene. You’ll recognize the name on all of those old-school comedy specials popping up on major streaming services. Recently, they brought throwback specials from Bill Hicks and Sam Kinison to Netflix.
Braunger’s newest special comes out on February 5 on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Prime, Microsoft, Steam, and Vimeo.
