Whitney Cummings has been busy behind the scenes (she was co-showrunner of the first season of ABC’s “Roseanne” revival), but now she’s returning to the standup stage with a brand-new Netflix comedy special, “Whitney Cummings: Can I Touch It?”.
“I don’t know if you noticed, but people started caring about sexual harassment all of a sudden,” she quips in a new trailer for the upcoming special, tackling a hot-button issue.
“I want you guys to know, I get it. Of course you want to touch women. They’re impossible to resist! I can relate to your frustration because sometimes I see a service dog at the airport. I’m gonna pet that f**king dog. I mean, it’s a dog. It obviously wants it, with that adorable little butt… if that’s not asking for it, I don’t know what is.”
“Filmed at the Sidney Harmon Hall in her hometown, Washington, DC, Cummings’ signature incisive commentary on gender dynamics is more relevant than ever,” reads the official synopsis for Cummings’ fourth Netflix special. “Do women need to wear service vests instead of ‘Rosé All Day’ t-shirts? Are their nicknames for each other hurting the cause? Now that people are actually listening what should women change? How are men holding up with all the ‘new’ rules they have to follow now? Tune in for Whitney’s take on everything including why we should give sex robots a chance.”
“Whitney Cummings: Can I Touch It?” debuts on Friday, July 30.
