Chris Rock is set to do a stand-up comedy special for Netflix, and he will become the first comedian to do a live-streaming event for the streamer. This is awesome!
Robbie Praw, Netflix’s vice president of stand-up and comedy formats said in a statement: “Chris Rock is one of the most iconic and important comedic voices of our generation. We’re thrilled the entire world will be able to experience a live Chris Rock comedy event and be a part of Netflix history. This will be an unforgettable moment and we’re so honored that Chris is carrying this torch.”
In total, including Netflix’s Tamborine, this will be Rock’s seventh stand-up special. He previously released five specials with HBO, including Bigger & Blacker and Bring the Pain. Rock is doing his Ego Death world tour right now.
