Comedian and podcaster Joe Rogan will host a new comedy special that will air live on Netflix later this summer.

“Burn the Boats” will be Rogan’s first stand up special in six years and his first live event with the streamer, which has made a major push into sports and other unscripted offerings in recent months.

The program will air Aug. 3 in primetime at 10 p.m. EST live at the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio.

Rogan is a controversial media figure who hosts a popular podcast through audio giant Spotify and has faced backlash and boycotts over his comments on a number of issues ranging from public health to presidential politics and culture.

Netflix has recently hosted a number of widely buzzed about live comedy specials including a roast of former NFL quarterback Tom Brady and stand up specials with comics like Katt Williams and John Mulaney earlier this year.
