Chris Rock Going Where No Comedian Has Been Before – Live on Netflix. The streaming giant said Thursday that The Rock will be the first artist to perform at the company’s first live, global streaming event. The comedy special is set to stream in early 2023, but few other details were revealed.
“Chris Rock is one of the most iconic and important comedic voices of our generation,” said Robbie Prow, Netflix The vice president of stand-up and comedy formats said in a statement.
“We are thrilled that the whole world will be able to experience a live Chris Rock comedy event and be a part of Netflix history. It will be an unforgettable moment and we are extremely honored that Chris is carrying this torch.”
This will be the first significant test of live streaming on Netflix, potentially opening the door for other programs to receive the live treatment. This will be The Rock’s second Netflix stand-up special. His debut, Chris Rock: Tambourine, debuted in February 2018.
