Mo Gilligan's 'Momentum' Special Will Hit Netflix September 30

August 28, 2019

Mo Gilligan has taken to Instagram to confirm the imminent arrival of his new stand-up comedy special, Momentum, making him the first black British comedian to get a special on the platform. The one-hour show will hit Netflix on September 30 and will be available in 140 countries worldwide.

It's been a whirlwind two years for the comedian that's seen him co-host two series of The Big Narstie Show alongside the titular grime MC. Then, earlier this year, Gilligan unveiled The Lateish Show With Mo Gilligan, the last episode of which will be broadcast this week on Channel 4.

In a post on Instagram, Gilligan said: "After selling 50,000 tickets on my debut tour, it was only right the world got to see it. I changed the name to Momentum as this was meant to be the name of my first one-man show but I could afford to take it to Edinburgh in 2017. Co-produced by my own production company Momo G Productions and Lucky 17."
