Jenny Slate is one of the most dynamic, energetic stand-up comedians performing right now, which makes the revelation that she has severe stage fright fairly surprising. Nevertheless, she decided to push through for her new Netflix special, aptly titled Stage Fright, which begins streaming on Oct. 22.
In the trailer for the comedy special, above, Slate not only performs onstage in New York City, but also weaves in footage from her childhood home videos and intimate interviews with her family — her mum, dad, two sisters, and two grandmothers. From discussing the terrifying ghosts that haunted her Massachusetts home growing up, to a story about being impressed by midnight Catholic mass, you can fully expect Slate to go there.
