Rachel Feinstein’s Comedy Central Special to Air on April 23
NEW YORK – Possible spoiler: she wears black the whole time. Rachel Feinstein’s first one-hour stand-up special “Amy Schumer Presents Rachel Feinstein: Only Whores Wear Purple” premieres with limited commercial interruption on Saturday, April 23 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT on Comedy Central.
Filmed in front of a packed New York City audience at Gerald W. Lynch Theater, Feinstein tackles a variety of topics with her blunt humor, including her love of “Christian sleepovers” and the reason why dick pics are unnecessary. Feinstein also demonstrates an incredible talent for embodying memorable characters such as her terrifyingly mature middle school crush, her overbearing mother, her judgmental grandmother and porn star Jenna Jameson.
Leading up to the on-air premiere, Comedy Central Stand-Up and cc.com/Rachel_Feinstein will feature preview clips from the special. Clips from “Only Whores Wear Purple” will also be available in the CC app and the Comedy Central channel on Snapchat Discover. Fans can follow Feinstein on Twitter at @RachelFeinstein and Comedy Central Stand-Up at @ccstandup, and tweet using the hashtag #OnlyWhores to join the social conversation around the special.
“Amy Schumer Presents Rachel Feinstein: Only Whores Wear Purple” will be available on April 24 on cc.com and in the Comedy Central App to fans that sign in via their cable or satellite provider. The Comedy Central App is available for iPad and iPhone on the App Store, Android on Google Play, Roku, Xbox One and Chromecast. The extended and uncensored version will be available for download on CC: Stand-Up Direct, iTunes, Amazon Video, Microsoft Movies & TV, Vudu, Verizon Multi-Screen, Google Play and Sony Entertainment Network on April 26. The digital album will also be released by Comedy Central Records on that date to iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play, and all streaming and satellite services such as Spotify and SiriusXM.
Feinstein is a nationally touring comedian and actress, best known for her ability to morph into various ethnicities and genders. Huffington Post called her “the only comedian we’ve seen who can go from embodying her grandmother in one breath and a predatory guy on the street in the next and be equally convincing at both.”
