A batch of new stand-up comedy specials are in the works for HBO Max, starring Tracy Morgan, John Early, Rose Matafeo and Ahir Shah.
“We are incredibly proud to showcase this expansive range of comedic talent on HBO Max,” said Suzanna Makkos, executive vice president of original programming, comedy and animation for HBO Max. “From legends to newcomers, this impressive slate of specials will complement the library of premium stand-up specials that HBO has become known for.”
Matafeo is a rising star who has won the Edinburgh Comedy Award, and Shah is a double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee.
Additionally, HBO Max recently announced a partnership with Conan O’Brien and Team Coco to bring stand-up specials to the streamer. O’Brien will host two specials featuring short sets from multiple up-and-coming comics, and will curate hour-long sets from three comedians.
HBO Max has also purchased the rights to a one-hour special from comedian James Veitch, also produced by Team Coco.
