Whitney Cummings has a new special in the works.
Next month, Cummings will be taping her fifth special Touch Me (named after her current tour) at NJPAC in Newark, New Jersey. This is her first special since 2019. And as of right now, there is no word on which platform this is for. However, she does have an ongoing relationship with Netflix, so it would not surprise us if it winds up there.
“Over the past year, I’ve had a lot of time to drink but also to work on ways to connect with comedy fans through my podcast and social media, and even though we’ve all been so far away from each other, I feel closer than ever to the people who follow me,” Cummings said in a statement. “I went from putting out a well-polished hour comedy special every couple years to sharing my personal life daily and frankly, secrets I shouldn’t even tell my therapist. I’m thrilled to be back in venues with comedy fans and get every other disease besides COVID.”
Cummings, creator and star of the NBC comedy series “Whitney,” which aired from 2011 to 2013, also co-created the CBS sitcom “2 Broke Girls,” which ran for six seasons until 2017, and hosts the podcast “Good For You.” She is currently on her Touch Me comedy tour. Her most recent comedy special — “Can I Touch It?” — premiered on Netflix in 2019. That special was filmed in her hometown of Washington, D.C.
The special will be taped on May 13th and 14th. Tickets are available here.
