AMAZON ORIGINAL "YEARLY DEPARTED" ADDS TIFFANY HADDISH, SARAH SILVERMAN, NATASHA ROTHWELL, ZIWE, NATASHA LEGGERO AND PATTI HARRISON TO LAY 2020 TO REST
The New Comedy Special Bidding Farewell to the Year We Love to Hate Premieres December 30th on Amazon Prime Video
CULVER CITY, Calif. - Nov. 12, 2020 - An all-star lineup joins the new Amazon Original Yearly Departed, a comedy special to memorialize a year that somehow still isn't over yet. Hosted by comedian Phoebe Robinson (2 Dope Queens), Yearly Departed will premiere December 30th exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.
The female-led lineup includes Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Ziwe (Book of Ziwe), Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip), Patti Harrison (Shrill), Natasha Leggero (Another Period), Natasha Rothwell (Insecure) and Sarah Silverman (I Love You, America) to deliver 2020's final eulogies.
Yearly Departed is a series of eulogies for the year 2020, where a lineup of all-women comedians will deliver everything from casual sex to beige Band-Aids and everything in between that we've "lost" in 2020. After a year of societal upheaval, plague, murder hornets and banana bread, Yearly Departed will give 2020 the huge send-off it deserves, from some of the world's funniest women. Yearly Departed is executive produced by Rachel Brosnahan, Paige Simpson, David Jammy, Katy Mullan, Samantha Ressler, Nathalie Love, and Bess Kalb, with Kalb also serving as head writer. Emmy Award-nominee Linda Mendoza (Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready) is set to direct. Yearly Departed is from Amazon Studios and Done + Dusted.
