Tom Segura’s fourth and fifth stand-up specials for Netflix will cover two different languages. Tom Segura: Ball Hog, premieres March 24 in English; a second, untitled special will be shot completely in Spanish this fall.
“Netflix has rapidly changed the way comedy is consumed around the world, and by releasing a Spanish language special, I look forward to being able to reach a new audience that Jo Koy and Ali Wong will never get,” said Segura. “Estoy muy emocionado por la oportunidad de entretener las amigas de mi mama,” he added.
Segura grew up in a half Peruvian/half American household speaking fluent Spanish, and recently launched a new Spanish podcast, Tom Segura En Español.
Tom Segura En Español is the sixth podcast from Your Mom’s House Studios, the production shingle created by Segura and his wife, comedian Christina Pazsitzky, who has two stand-up specials of her own streaming on Netflix. Their Your Mom’s House podcast, begun in October 2010, averages over 1 million unique impressions per episode. Their other podcasts: Where My Mom’s At (a parenting podcast hosted by Christina), 2 Bears 1 Cave (hosted by Segura and comedian Bert Kreischer), Dr. Drew After Dark (hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky) and The Honey Dew with Ryan Sickler.
Tom Segura: Ball Hog premieres globally on Netflix on March 24, 2020.
