Chris Rock to become first comedian to perform live on Netflix

Chris Rock will become the first ever stand-up comedian to perform live on Netflix.

The streamer announced Thursday (10 November) that the famed comic and Oscars host would will the headliner of its first-ever live, global streaming event.

“Chris Rock is one of the most iconic and important comedic voices of our generation,” Robbie Praw, Netflix’s vice president of stand-up and comedy formats, said in a statement.

“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.”

The event is set to stream in early 2023, almost a year after Rock was infamously slapped by Will Smith at the 2022 Oscars ceremony.

Rock also denounced an apology video that Smith shared on social media. “F** your hostage video,” he told the crowd.

The live show will mark Rock’s second Netflix stand-up special after Chris Rock: Tamborine debuted in February 2018.
