More than 40 comedians from 13 markets will be featured in a stand-up comedy series on Netflix in 2019.
Each of the 47 comedians will perform a half-hour stand-up special, some of which will be recorded at the upcoming Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, with sets also being taped in Brazil, Mexico, India, Germany and the Netherlands. It will tape in seven languages. Comedians will hail from the U.S., U.K., France, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the Middle East, among other markets.
“Few things are better than discovering a new comedian you love,” said Lisa Nishimura, VP of original documentary and comedy at Netflix. “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.”
