Netflix has become the ultimate platform to watch comedy specials.

“Few things are better than discovering a new comedian you love,” said Netflix’s Lisa Nishimura. “With this event, we’re creating a true comedy festival experience for our members where they can scour the globe from home to find some of the freshest voices in comedy.”


Some of the comedians that will be featured in this launch are Chris D’Elia, Neal Brennan and Nicole Byerfrom from the US, the UK’s Nish Kumar, Joel Dommett, Shirley Souagnon and Jason Brokerss from France, and Loyiso Madinga, Ivan Decker and Moayad Alnefaie from Africa, Canada and the Middle East, respectively, and loads more.
