Today and tomorrow Netflix debuts two comedy specials – one from across the pond (Mo Gilligan: Momentum) and the other of domestic vintage (Nikki Glaser: Bangin’).
Available now, British comedian Mo Gilligan’s first stand-up special explores what it was like growing up in London. Mo reflects “on humble beginnings, family dynamics and the complex art of dancing in the club.”
