Something Special 

A posthumous comedy special is a very strange thing.

Last fall, after privately battling leukemia for almost a decade, comedian Norm MacDonald passed away unexpectedly. Now, Netflix has revealed that before he passed, he shot a comedy special.

The result was a stand-up special shot in Macdonald’s living room. The actor filmed the entire hour in a single take. “He looks great and the material’s fantastic,” Hoekstra says.

“Norm Macdonald: Nothing Special” will be available to stream starting May 30. I imagine it wll be both strange and great.
