HBO Max has released the official trailer for “Marlon Wayans: God Loves Me,” the comedian and actor’s third stand-up comedy special.
Filmed at the Center Stage Theater in Atlanta, Marlon delivers a hilarious hour-long performance, unleashing his spot-on impressions and fearless physical comedy to address one of the most infamous recent events in pop culture – “the slap” that took place at the 94th Academy Awards ceremony.
With his inimitable blunt and boisterous style, Marlon Wayans skillfully weaves anecdotes from his own life with stories about his long-time friends, from divulging his teenage crush on Jada Pinkett Smith, getting humbled by Chris Rock in an early stand-up set, and examining the impact of Will Smith’s long career.
A daring tour-de-force, this special is a hysterical yet thoughtful exploration of friendship, family, mistakes, and redemption.
Marlon shared his excitement about his newest stand-up comedy special saying:
I’m excited to be back in business with HBO Max. We’ve had a lot of success with my last two specials so this will be great.
I know HBO Max and the sophisticated team of executives are notorious for being true tastemakers and snobs of comedy, so I am flattered that they found this special to be… special.
Watch the trailer for “God Loves Me” below.
“Marlon Wayans: God Loves Me” premieres on March 2 on HBO Max.
