The Hollywood Reporter reports that Fortune Feimster has landed a comedy special chez Netflix. 

But that’s not all — the stand-up comedienne and actress is already in production on her first hourlong special in addition to co-starring in a feature film for the streaming giant. 

The comedy special titled Sweet & Salty is expected to debut on Netflix on January 21, 2020. According to the outlet, the special will see Feimster recall her childhood misadventures as a former Girl Scout, debutante, and (disqualified) swim meet champion; her family’s complicated relationship with Hooters; and how a movie helped her realize she was a lesbian.

“This special was a labor of love for me,” Feimster said in a statement. “It’s the first time I’ve done such a personal set like this where I take people on a journey from my childhood to present day and what it was like trying to figure out who I was along the way. I think there’s a lot of things in it people can relate to, but most importantly, I just hope it makes people laugh.”
