NEW YORK, May 11, 2018 – Hailing from Philadelphia, and from the Bay Area, and Massachusetts, and New Jersey, and also kind of New York and LA, Julian McCullough delivers a hilarious and surprisingly personal hour of coming-of-age comedy in Julian McCullough: Maybe I’m a Man, premiering Friday, June 8 at Midnight ET/PT on Comedy Central.
McCullough’s rootless upbringing with loving but, we’ll say, free-spirited parents is the foundation of this one-hour stand-up special that incorporates stories about his jazz-loving, psychedelic-dabbling father, culture-shocking moves from coast-to-coast, first jobs as a teenager, first loves as a college student and much more. A self-proclaimed “hopeless romantic,” McCullough fought the good fight on his way to manhood, and he’s got the emotional — and physical — markings to prove it.
Leading up to the on-air premiere, cc.com and the CC App will feature preview clips from the special, and you can catch live performances from McCullough at Comedy Central Presents Clusterfest in San Francisco on Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2. On Saturday, June 9, the full special will be available in the CC App and on CC.com. Fans can follow McCullough on Twitter at @julezmac and Comedy Central Stand-Up at @standup to join the social conversation around the special.
Julian McCullough has toured the country enough to earn Diamond Medallion Status on Delta Airlines, has appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Conan, NPR’s This American Life, and Comedy Central’s This Is Not Happening. He has also had parts on Inside Amy Schumer and is a frequent guest on TruTV’s Comedy Knockout. His podcast The Soft Spot can be found on iTunes.
Julian McCullough: Maybe I’m a Man is produced by Den of Thieves and executive produced by McCullough, Jesse Ignjatovic, Evan Prager, Lance Bangs, Molly Mandel, Jordan Barrow and Jared Morell. Anne Harris is the Executive in Charge for Comedy Central.
