Get ready to say goodbye to the dumpster fire that was 2020. From the COVID-19 world wild pandemic, that couple of weeks people were afraid of hornet flies, Ben Shapiro reading the lyrics of Cardi B and Meg Thee Stallion’s “WAP,” the U.S Election, and the ongoing terrible season of The Bachelorette, we have truly been through a lot. But an all-star cast of female actors, comics, directors, and writers are helping the world say goodbye to 2020 in an Amazon Prime comedy special called Yearly Departed.
The one hour special is produced by Rachel Brosnahan and hosted by 2 Dope Queens Phoebe Robinson. Starring Tiffany Haddish, Sarah Silverman, Natasha Leggero, Rachel Brosnahan, Phoebe Robinson, Patti Harrison, Natasha Rothwell, and Ziwe, the trailer shows the impressive lineup of funny women at a funeral. And they are all ready and equipped to roast the last year of our lives. “Yearly Departed” Robinson begins, “we have gathered all you ladies here today because 20/20 was a trifling hoe.” “That’s right!” Haddish agrees. They all then begin to take turns saying goodbye in a dark and hilarious matter. “Goodbye to the fear that at any moment the nuclear codes could wind up on Twitter,” Silverman says.
Robinson shared a photo of the promo image on Instagram to announce the all-female written and directed special. She captioned the post, “After months and months of not shooting anything because of Covid, it’s really nice to return for an all-female cast, all female writers room, and female directed comedy special for @amazonprimevideo.”
Yearly Departed premieres on Prime Video on December 30.
