Exclusive: Puppet Wyatt Cenac explains how his new comedy LP was made

Wyatt Cenac’s sophomore comedy special, Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn, is coming to both Netflix and LP. The special hits both the Internet and record stores Oct. 21, and was shot at Union Hall in Brooklyn, a venue that’s sheltered much of New York’s comedy scene for the past decade. Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn both features and was directed by Cenac and features cameos from Eugene Mirman, The Wire’s Gbenga Akinnagbe, and a puppet that looks like Cenac. You’ll also see that puppet below, in a little exclusive featurette The A.V. Club has about the making of the Brooklyn LP.

Cenac also has a number of tour dates lined up this fall, all of which are listed below.
