Executive produced by Judd Apatow and Pete Davidson, produced by RadicalMedia, and taped in August at Brooklyn Steel in New York City before a live, COVID-19 protocol-compliant audience, Ricky Velez’s first HBO comedy hour showcases his ability to relate through comedy as he delivers a hilarious set integral to his Queens, NY upbringing.
