After Aziz Ansari, Hasan Minhaj and Vir Das, stand-up comedian Aditi Mittal is set to do a special stand-up show, “Things They Wouldn’t Let Me Say,” for Netflix.
The show will debut on Netflix, July 18, to its over 100 million users across 190 countries globally.
“Having a platform like Netflix is a dream come true for anyone in entertainment and comedy today… The journey of this show has been absolutely exhilarating. I hope Netflix fans all over the world will enjoy the show as much as I have in making it,” Mittal said in a statement.
Mittal, one of the first women in India to do stand-up comedy, touches up issues like gender, sex and notions about beauty in her shows.
Her Netflix show is gender revolution rich with taboos of being a woman in India today.
Swati Shetty, director of content acquisition, Netflix said, “Aditi’s success reflects the growing pool of Indian stand-up comedy talent that is already gaining international recognition and we are proud to showcase Aditi’s bold wit and humor on the Netflix service.”
