16. Seth Meyers: Lobby Baby

Release Year: 2019

Directed By: Neal Brennan

Starring: Seth Meyers

Release Date: Tuesday, Nov. 5

If you’re still doubled over in laughter from last month’s stand-up comedy specials from Nikki Glaser, Jenny Slate and Arsenio Hall, keep the laughter rolling with November’s can’t-miss specials from some of the leading comics in the game. Making his Netflix stand-up comedy special debut, Seth Meyers steps away from his Late Night with Seth Meyers desk to perform an unforgettable set in Seth Meyers: Lobby Baby. It’s less topical than his talk show but no less hilarious.

In Lobby Baby, Seth Meyers performs at the Pantages Theater in Minneapolis and tells the story of how last year, his wife gave birth to their second child in the lobby of their apartment building. Thus, the titular lobby baby. Elsewhere in the special, Meyers riffs on the struggles and comedies of family life, the ups and downs of fatherhood and the cautionary tale of why taking your significant other to Paris for their birthday might not be the best bet.

Apart from cameos here and there, producing and writing Documentary Now! and various hosting gigs for the Golden Globes and the Emmys, it’s been a while since Seth Meyers made us laugh beyond his monologues and interviews (sometimes featuring day drinking) with celebrities. The Saturday Night Live veteran is just one of many comedians Netflix has lured back to stand-up, and his debut comedy special for the streamer is absolutely one of the best new releases this month.
