When it comes to Chris Rock comedy specials, it almost went without saying that HBO was the place that it would be.
That all changed today with Rock reportedly getting a $40 million deal for two comedy specials.
The times have indeed changed and Netflix not only is gaining in on HBO prestige with their increasing number of critically acclaimed and award winning series and specials, but it seems like they’ve got the money to keep this pace up.
This deal puts Rock on the Forbes list for top earning comedians for the next two years by the way.
Above all, we’re happy to hear that the latest stand-up from Chris Rock will be two new hours rather than just a host monologue or a couple of minutes as an awards show presenter.
