Chris Rock Set to Make History With Netflix Live Special
Chris Rock is teaming up with Netflix to put on the first ever, live globally-broadcasted show.
The streaming service announced on Thursday, 10 November, that the 57-year-old iconic comedian would be the first artist to perform live for their special that will be aired live across the world early next year. More details are expected to emerge in the upcoming weeks.
Robbie Praw, Netflix’s Vice President of Stand-up and Comedy Formats, said: “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 honoured that Chris is carrying this torch.”
This won’t be Rock’s first rodeo with Netflix – “Chris Rock: Tamborine” hit the airwaves in February 2018.
This special will entrench the streaming platform as a leader in providing live comedy; their previous, huge special, “Netflix is a Joke: The Festival”, aired earlier this year and was a roaring success, featuring 330 jokesters doing their thing at 295 gigs across 35 venues in Los Angeles, California.
