Grammy nominated NY-based stand-up comedian Wyatt Cenac is also an Emmy and WGA Award winning performer, writer, and producer. Armed with an “attentive, inquisitive perspective” (AV Club) and an “hilariously understated style” (Paste Magazine), he has become a favorite of audiences and critics alike. 

Night Train with Wyatt Cenac premiered on NBCUniversal’s comedy-focused subscription-video service SeeSo. The digital series, based on the popular long-running weekly Brooklyn stage show, is a freewheeling mix of stand-up, music and other surprises, where anything can happen and anything is welcome. Night Train with Wyatt Cenac captures the amazing talent and spontaneity that has made the live show a staple of the New York comedy scene for the past three years. Wyatt hosts and executive produces the show. 

A Special Thing Records released Wyatt’s third comedy album Furry Dumb Fighter. Wyatt’s second hour standup special, Brooklyn, which he also directed, premiered on Netflix. The special was also released as a limited edition vinyl-only album of the same title on Other Music, which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Comedy Album. The TV hour was listed as one of the “11 Best Standup Specials of 2014” by Vulture and was praised as “some of his best, funniest insights” by The AV Club. Wyatt’s first hour special Comedy Person premiered on Comedy Central, earning him a spot on Paste Magazine’s “Best Comedians” list of that year. The album of the special was named one of the “Best Comedy Albums of 2011” by Huffington Post.
