Karan Gill is going to appear on the upcoming stand-up comedy show on Netflix. He is well-known for his YouTube series, “Pretentious Movie Reviews,” and will be appearing in the special show, “Yours Sincerely, Karan Gill” on Netflix.
This special show will feature Karan’s letter to himself that he wrote as a 15-year old. He described his future goals in this letter, and Karan will tell us how his personality, weight, and writing style changed within the last fifteen years of his life.
In a trailer about the show that is scheduled to stream on 24th April, Gill talks about the effects of lockdown in the second half of the trailer. He explicitly mentions that it is not an attempt to take advantage of the YouTube algorithm to make this video viral.
In the video, he says, “Hello, this is Kanan Gill and this by no means is a way to extend the length of this video so that the YouTube algorithm picks it up.” He mentions, even though the actual trailer shows parts of the show that were filmed in 2019, but the message at the end is filmed at his home during the lockdown and that he wishes that everyone is safe during this trying time.
“I just wanted to say that it’s really difficult to cut the trailer for a comedy special because you want to give away, like, the theme of the show and to say that it’s funny, but you don’t want to give away any big jokes or any big context. And there is a lot of context to set up, so I hope we did a good job and I hope it’s convinced you enough to watch it. Please force someone else to watch it as well, and I hope you enjoy it. And if you didn’t enjoy it also, I hope you watch the whole thing and didn’t enjoy it. Like a champ,” added Karan Gill.
This will be the fourth stand-up special to stream on Netflix which has previously streamed Vir Das: For India on Republic Day in January, Amit Tandon: Family Tandoncies in late February, and Ladies Up, featuring Kaneez Surka, Prashasti Singh, Niveditha Prakasam, and Supriya Joshi in March.
The special show will stream on 24th April 2020 on Netflix in India and everywhere else.
