NEW YORK, February 10, 2020 – Sam Morril’s second one-hour special, Sam Morril: I Got This, will premiere as a direct-to-fan experience tonight, Monday, February 10 at Midnight ET on Comedy Central’s Stand-Up YouTube channel, where it will remain available to stream at any time. Morril will also interact with fans during the Midnight premiere in real time on the special’s YouTube watch page at standup.com/sammorril.
I Got This spotlights Morril’s talent for hilariously stating the obvious to the oblivious, contrasting his everyman sensibility against the outrageous characters and situations he encounters as a touring comedian and native New Yorker. In I Got This, Morril uses his observational wit to speak on the low bar for being a good guy, refereeing fights between his loud neighbors, how captivating true-crime entertainment raises the bar for murderers, his untrendy rec-center gym, meeting a real-life Cleveland vigilante named The White Knight, and much more.
Morril will appear as a guest on Lights Out with David Spade tonight at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT, and his first one-hour special, Amy Schumer Presents Sam Morril: Positive Influence, is currently available on cc.com and the Comedy Central App, no login required.
Fans can follow Morril on Twitter at @sammorril and Comedy Central Stand-Up at @standup to join the social conversation around the special.
Morril and Hillary Robbie are Executives Producers for Sam Morril: I Got This. Anne Harris and Bill McGrath are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
