In 2017, he released four highly anticipated specials on Netflix: “The Art of Spin,” “Deep in the Heart of Texas,” “Equanimity,” and “The Bird Revelations.” All four specials were delivered on vinyl as double-feature albums and received Grammy Awards for "Best Comedy Album" in 2018 and 2019, also winning an Emmy Award for “Equanimity.”
