Netflix has announced Stand Out: The Documentary, which will explore the history of LGBTQ stand-up comedy. Written, directed and executively produced by Page Hurwitz, Stand Out: The Documentary will debut later this year and is set to accompany Netflix’s recent comedy special Stand Out: An LGBTQ+ Celebration.

The documentary combines original performances, interviews, archival footage and backstage footage to explore an array of themes such as comedy as activism, diversity in stand-up, new queer cultures and bringing mainstream in the alternative.

The film will aim to look at LGBTQ+ comedians with a closer lens, looking over their lives in and out of the spotlight. It will also focus on LGBTQ+ stand-up as one of the many spearheads for progress over the last five decades, leading to change all over the world.
