Michelle Wolf’s star continues to rise. Netflix just released the first trailer for her upcoming series The Break With Michelle Wolf, set to premiere Sunday starting May 27th. The Break will be a mix of sketch comedy, talk show, and variety programming, with weekly installments, allowing Wolf and company to make the humor topical, which is one of her strengths as a performer. The Break also marks Wolf’s first time in the spotlight after working as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show and NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers.
Well, that’s not entirely true. Wolf recently gained an uptick in notoriety after somehow having the nerve to be a comedian performing in a public space. While her remarks at this year’s White House Correspondents Dinner cast the current administration as a group of democracy-destorying liars (which… fair), it was a comment about Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ “perfect smokey eye” that managed to draw ire across the aisle. But mostly on one side. You know which one I’m talking about.
Anyway, Wolf’s show is the latest Netflix foray into episodic content, with a new episode available to stream every Sunday. For more information, you can check out the show’s website here. The Break with Michelle Wolf debuts Sunday, May 27th.
