Already, Joel Kim Booster has the rom com, queer riff on Pride & Prejudice called Fire Island coming out on Hulu very soon as well as popping up all over the place in Big Mouth, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and more. That would be plenty to make Joel Kim Booster’s stock pretty great right now.
He’s now adding a new Netflix hour stand-up special to that list with Joel Kim Booster: Psychosexual that has just been announced for a Jun. 21st release on the still massive streaming platform. Considering all the things that Netflix is cutting and canceling this week, we’re not only glad that they’re moving forward with an original comedy special, but going with Joel whom, for our money, is one of the most exciting comedians that they’ve ordered a special from in awhile.
Joel is one of the absolute sharpest writers in comedy today (that includes his work on The Other Two), but also has one of the most fascinating life stories with being adopted by a very religious Christian family from South Korea only to become one of the shining examples of gay men in stand-up comedy.
So, let’s get to the end of June already.
Writer, actor, and comedian @ihatejoelkim is making his Netflix comedy special debut in Joel Kim Booster: Psychosexual, and he is covering all the important topics in life. Personal heritage, his preference for threesomes, masturbation techniques – and a lot more. Arriving 6/21! pic.twitter.com/QoviLn257L
