London Hughes’ Special ‘To Catch a D*ck’ will premiere globally on Netflix December 22nd.
Executive produced by Kevin Hart alongside Leland Wigington, Bryan Smiley, and Tiffany Brown for HartBeat productions To Catch a D*ck sees Hughes confused about life. She’s awesome, successful, attractive, and has no gag reflex, and yet… somehow, incredibly single … how on earth has that happened?! In this hilariously provocative, empowering show, London will explore the complete mystery of why the world is full of desirable, brilliant but single women – who definitely don’t need a man but wouldn’t mind the option.
Hughes says: “I’m thrilled to be working with the legend that is Kevin Hart, and I’m so excited for the world to see this special! After the crazy year, we’ve had, we could all do with a good laugh and some good d*ck.”
Bryan Smiley says: “London Hughes is a once in a generation talent. HartBeat is both excited and privileged to produce her first global comedy special with the biggest comedy platform in the world.”
Hughes is the first British Black woman to be nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy ‘Best Show’ Award for her 2019 show, To Catch a D*ck. In 2021, London will host The Netflix Afterparty, a first-of-its-kind weekly comedy after-show, alongside Fortune Feimster and David Spade. Produced by Spade and Free 90 Media, each episode will be dedicated to interviews, pop culture discussions, and comedy sketches focused on Netflix’s latest and buzziest titles.
Earlier this year, Hughes was awarded the Royal Television Society Award for ‘Best Entertainment Performance’ for her impressive work on ITV2’s hip-hop comedy quiz show Don’t Hate The Playaz, and in 2009 she received the prestigious Funny Women Award at the London Comedy Store.
A talented actor, Hughes has appeared in the BBC/Amazon award-winning and critically acclaimed series Fleabag, as well as The Stand-Up Sketch Show on ITV2. London also created, wrote, and starred in her own YouTube comedy series, No Filter, which featured some of London’s brightest new talent. In addition, she has hosted Channel 5’s Extreme Hair Wars and appeared on BBC2’s satirical panel show Mock the Week. Her dating podcast London Actually is available now on Spotify.
