History of Swear Words will be the latest bit of edutainment from Netflix and, today, we got a little bit of a better sense what the split between the education and entertainment will be.
Certainly, tapping Nic Cage hosting a program about swearing is the spot on fun choice. Having an extensive panel that stretches from such luminaries as Elvis Mitchell to a whole row of comedians including Sarah Silverman, Jim Jefferies, Nikki Glaser, Joel Kim Booster, and Patti Harrison to linguistics experts does suggest a pretty good edutainment balance (i.e. this won’t entirely be Nicolas Cage screaming obscenities, but that’s certainly in there).
Get a look of what’s in store for History of Swear Words with this trailer, then look for it to start streaming on Tues. Jan. 5th, 2021 on Netflix.
