Public access television has always been a playground for the weird, and perhaps the weirdest show on public access (and streaming online worldwide) is The Special Without Brett Davis. Hosted by Andy Kaufman Award-winning comedian Brett Davis (The Chris Gethard Show, HBO's Animals, IFC's Boy Band), the show re-defines "variety show" every week with each episode taking on the form of a new "Special" hosted by a different character. Where else can you see Gilbert Gottfried being interviewed by a confused Amish teenager and Michael Shannon auditioning for a punk band? Guests like Richard Kind, Janeane Garofalo, Artie Lange, Rose McGowan, Lloyd Kaufman, Tom Scharpling, Brett Gelman, Sasheer Zamata, The Thermals, Screaming Females and more have all joined the chaos. The show's rotating cast of comedians includes the likes of Jo Firestone, Cole Escola, Julio Torres, James Adomian, Bridey Elliott, Ikechukwu Ufomadu, Aparna Nancherla, John Early, John Reynolds, Conner O'Malley, Joe Rumrill, Ana Fabrega, Mary Houlihan, Lorelei Ramirez and more.
With well-curated musical acts, rising comedy stars and fresh start every week, the only thing you can expect to see on the show, is something unexpected.
