For Grownups: Premiere Dates & Details for New Netflix Stand-Up Specials Revealed...

Written by

Netflix #StreamTeamThis afternoon, I sat-in on a discussion about the growing number of Stand-Up Specials that will be rolling out on Netflix in the coming year. Hannibal Buress, John Mulaney and Patton Oswalt threw down some thoughts on working with Netflix on their latest specials - Oswalt largely equating the readily-available library as being like "albums on a shelf" - You want to see it, and there it is. This Spring, four new titles will join that virtual shelf, with details and premiere dates for specials by Buress, Jimmy Carr, Theo Von and Oswalt ready to roll out. Check out a preview...

Hannibal Buress: Comedy Camisado - Friday, February 5, 2016

Coming in hot after a sold out national theater stand-up tour, his own TV series, and a successful run on Broad City, Hannibal Buress offers his personal brand of sharp observational comedy to a packed audience at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis. 

Theo Von: No Offense - Premieres Friday, February 26, 2016

Known for always saying the unexpected and telling it like it is, even at the expense of offending, Louisiana comedian Theo Von returns home to film his first stand-up comedy special for Netflix at the Civic Theater in New Orleans.

Jimmy Carr Funny Business - Premieres Friday, March 18, 2016

The first British comedian to make an original stand-up special for Netflix, Carr unleashes his distinctive comedy and wickedly funny one-liners to a sold out audience at the UK’s Hammersmith Apollo.

Patton Oswalt: Talking for Clapping - Premieres Friday, April 22, 2016

Patton Oswalt delivers a fresh hour (and more) of brand-new stand-up that covers everything from misery to defeat to hopelessness. It’s his most upbeat special to date. You will believe that a man is capable of: TALKING FOR CLAPPING.
