Netflix is no stranger to streaming comedy specials. Seinfeld got his first show on the streaming platform last September and they released a couple more events starring Patton Oswalt and Dave Chappelle before the New Year. Well, Netflix isn’t done with comedians yet. Deadline reports that Netflix is set to debut a series of 15-minute stand-up specials starring new comedic talents this year.
So if comedy is your thing, particularly stand up comedy, you have a lot to look forward too on Netflix this year. Deadline says that the specials will tape in February at Atlanta’s Terminal West. Each comic will get 15 minutes to be their funny selves. The list of up-and-coming comedians includes Aisling Bea, Michelle Buteau, Tim Dillon, JR De Guzman, Sabrina Jalees, Janelle James, Sam Jay, Josh Johnson, Ian Karmel, Jak Knight, Matteo Lane, Max Silvestri, Taylor Tomlinson, Phil Wang, Emma Willmann and Kate Willett.
This should be interesting. These specials may well make big names out of some of these up and coming talents. It looks like 2018 will be the year of the funny man and woman on Netflix. A premiere date has not yet been set, but they will likely space them throughout the year.
