In case you didn’t know, Netflix has actually had stand-up specials on their platform for years. So, in further shining a light on comedians from around the world, they’re bringing them altogether under one banner. We’re glad this is happening as the last “global comedy event” was the wonderful Stand Up Planet hosted by Hasan Minhaj that unfortunately had one Bill Cosby as a major consultant and advisor on it.
There is no name for the series yet, but it will be coming out in 2019, presumably like all other Netflix stand-up series where everyone gets their own “episode”. We sincerely hope that they don’t pick a horribly generic name like The Standups or Comedy Lineup this time around.
