With Difficult People canceled and Billy On The Street still trapped in some weird limbo dimension, Billy Eichner has been forced to find a new outlet where he can hilariously scream at people. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he has now landed at Netflix, which has announced that it’s giving Eichner his first-ever stand-up special. Netflix hasn’t announced a name or a filming date for the special just yet, but it will be produced this year.

As for what this will entail, THR says Eichner is planning to make it a “unique blend of comedy and music” that will involve jokes about politics and pop culture—which are pretty typical subjects for Eichner. It also may feature some new Billy On The Street-style segments, but THR says that the Billy On The Street show itself is still looking for a new home.
