Over the past few years, Netflix has been putting a lot of money into stand-up specials from some big names in comedy: Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Amy Schumer (who—it was recently reported—rightfully asked for fair pay), Mike Birbiglia, Hasan Minhaj, and Jen Kirkman, among others. Their latest big release will be Marc Maron, who has a special coming to the streaming platform on September 5th; they've just released the above trailer.

The special is called Too Real, and features the comedian "unleash[ing] a storm of ideas on meditation, mortality, documentary films, and our weird modern world," while philosophizing on old age and cats. Sounds partially uplifting.

The set was filmed at the Pantages Theatre in Minneapolis earlier this year.
