Per the outlet, the lineup of comedians who will also appear on the show will be announced later. It is worthy to note that last year’s show featured host Phoebe Robinson, Tiffany Haddish, Natasha Rothwell, Natasha Leggero, Ziwe, Sarah Silverman, Patti Harrison and executive producer Rachel Brosnahan.
And reacting to the news, Orji said: “In my career, I’ve been fortunate to work on a show that was created by Blacks, for Black characters, and now, I get to host a special that was written by all women, featuring a lineup of incredibly funny female comedians, directed by a talented female director, and produced by a group of amazing female producers. I guess lightning CAN strike twice.”
And executive producer Brosnahan added: “I, and team Scrap Paper Pictures, couldn’t be more excited to rejoin this team of powerhouse producers, writers, and our talented director, Linda Mendoza, to bring another Yearly Departed into the world. I can think of no better group of women to bid adieu and f*#& you to 2021.”
We can’t wait.
