CHRIS GETHARD'S ACCLAIMED OFF-BROADWAY SHOW "CHRIS GETHARD: CAREER SUICIDE" TO DEBUT MAY 6 ON HBO; JUDD APATOW IS AN EXECUTIVE PRODUCER

Comedian, talk-show and podcast host, and writer Chris Gethard brings his one-man off-Broadway show CHRIS GETHARD: CAREER SUICIDE to HBO on SATURDAY, MAY 6 (10:00-11:20 p.m. ET/PT). Taped at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center in February, the special was executive produced by Judd Apatow, Chris Gethard, Brian Stern, Mike Berkowitz, Anna Wenger and Marcus Raboy, and directed by Kimberly Senior, who also directed the stage production. The show was written by Chris Gethard.

The special will also be available on HBO On Demand, HBO NOW, HBO GO and affiliate portals.

CHRIS GETHARD: CAREER SUICIDE is a comedy about depression, alcoholism, suicide and the other funniest parts of life. Gethard holds nothing back as he dives into his experiences with mental illness and psychiatry, finding hope in the strangest places.

"Chris Gethard is a fearless storyteller, and CAREER SUICIDE is exactly the kind of raw, relevant and hilarious comedy we are thrilled to share with our audience," says Nina Rosenstein, executive vice president, HBO Programming.

Executive producer Judd Apatow remarks, "I'm so excited that the entire world will be able to see Chris' one-man show. And then, whenever he walks into a room, people will look at him funny."

Reviewing the original off-Broadway show, which debuted in Oct. 2016 and ended its run in January, the New York Times wrote, "Mr. Gethard...confronts with a bruising and sometimes hilarious frankness his longstanding urge to pull the plug on himself...he definitely qualifies as significantly funny." The Village Voice called the show "howlingly funny" and the Huffington Post said, "Never before has anything felt so complete and so personal...Amazing!"

Chris Gethard's credits include the Fusion comedy series "The Chris Gethard Show" and the podcast Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People. His other TV credits include guest appearances on "Broad City," "Parks and Recreation," "The Office," "Louie" and "Inside Amy Schumer." An alumnus of Upright Citizens Brigade, Gethard appeared in the feature films "Don't Think Twice," "The Other Guys" and "The Heat." He also wrote the book "A Bad Idea I'm About to Do: True Tales of Seriously Poor Judgment and Stunningly Awkward Adventure."
