The past year has certainly given the comedy world a lot of new material, and thanks to our favorite streaming site, you can reap the benefits right from your own couch. Here are the best stand-up comedy specials that are currently running on Netflix...

Bill Burr: Live at Red Rocks

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 7.7

WATCH ON NETFLIX

In Bill Burr: Live at Red Rocks, Bill comes with a different persona – he aims to find a better self of himself. He goes through topics we wouldn’t quite expect from Bill – how his 4-year-old is the anchor behind his anger management, him finding common ground with lesbians and the like. But Bill still maintains the core element that made him a success – approaching topics most comedians wouldn’t want to be seen within 2 miles of.

Cristela Alonzo: Middle Classy

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 6.7

WATCH ON NETFLIX

No one is living the American Dream better than Cristela Alonzo. In her latest special Cristela Alonzo: Middle Classy, the comedian offers a show that is easy to watch, with comedy surrounding her new life when she suddenly got more money than she could dream of. But she also finds room to stick to her roots, and talk about the joys of growing up and the importance of family.

Joel Kim Booster: Psychosexual

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 5.6

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Joel Kim finds his big break with the Joel Kim Booster: Psychosexual special and the cherry on the top is that it is placed right during Pride Month. Electric and full of dynamic patterns, Joel connects easily with the audience, and his set is never boring or predictable. From being Asian to his preference for threesomes to his curiosity about human sexuality, he has us laughing in our seats throughout his time on the stage.

Snoop Dogg's F*cn Around Comedy Special

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 5.2

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Snoop Dogg comes on stage to prove that he can get a crowd going crazy with laughter in the Snoop Dogg’ F*cn Around Comedy Special, which is famously filled with special moments. Adding to these complimentary sets from other legendary Black comedians like Katt Williams and Mike Epps, you get a special that you’ll go back to again and again and again.

Amy Schumer Presents: Parental Advisory

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 3.0

WATCH ON NETFLIX

The latest of her releases, Amy Schumer Presents: Parental Advisory puts us in the room with Amy, a new mom and a happily remarried woman, and we soon come to understand why she is one of the funniest women dominating the stand-up comedy scene. Her jokes stay within the theme of the title, and the overall tone of the show is very relatable to new parents navigating this space. The success of this show, however, lies in the collaboration between the various artists she brings on stage, which include names like Ron Funchess, Jaye McBride, Christina P and Rachel Feinstein.

Norm Macdonald: Nothing Special

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 7.8

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Norm Macdonald was a huge loss to the standup comedy scene, and it may seem surprising to see his name come up again on our list. But Norm Macdonald: Nothing Special is a final episode left behind by the comedian, filmed in early 2020 right before he had a serious medical procedure. Delivered through a webcam, there is a certain introspective element to the entire recording that delivers the comedy in a more effective manner. When paired with the eulogy from six of his comedian friends, the show is a tear-jerker for all the good reasons. 

Katt Williams: World War III

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 4.5

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Katt Williams takes on a different kind of war in Katt Williams: World War III - this one is a war between the truth and lies. What’s new about this particular scene is how Williams takes a fresh look at American politics, the war, and the stigma around drug use and even at the time-tested argument of God vs science - thereby making this show one of its kind. By joking about Biden, fentanyl, and the Biblical Garden of Eden, you find a comedy that is easy to laugh at, without having to think too much. You should consider watching this special, especially with a glass of wine to sip away.

Christina P. - Mom Genes

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 5.8

WATCH ON NETFLIX

After the success of her first mom-themed special Mother Inferior, Christina P takes what works best with her audience, finds a whole standup set worth of jokes about her marriage with Tom Segura and what it’s like raising children with him and drops it on Mother’s Day titled Christina P.: Mom Genes. With her graphic metaphors and style of performing, there is much to enjoy in this special. There’s a charm to the act, which not everyone will enjoy, but everyone should definitely give it a try. If you ask us whether it is stream-worthy, we say yes.

Michela Giraud: The Truth, I Swear!

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 5.5

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Michela Giraud: The Truth, I Swear! is precisely that – her unpacking her life experiences with success, fame, shortcoming, being labeled as “curvy” and a lot more. But the special takes a higher stage than that. Michela talks about her feud with Demi Lovato fans, her reasons why she thinks women are like a piece of cardboard and her upbringing in a middle-class Catholic family. She has this unique skill of moving to a different topic without completely letting go of the previous topic. And despite this being her first special, we wholeheartedly support Michela in her rise as an upcoming comedian.

Ronny Chieng: Speakeasy

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 6.4

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Ronny Chieng has made quite the name for himself as an actor on The Daily Show, which portrays an angry news host. His smooth and slick style of ranting about the pressing issues surrounding us translate effortlessly in Ronny Chieng: Speakeasy, which you should definitely stream over the weekend. Ronny also speaks about a variety of topics that aren’t typically covered by other standup comedians. This results in a style that doesn’t require a story with simple tricks but manages to keep the show upbeat throughout its duration. By using positive discrimination and his own worldview as an Asian, Ronny Chieng: Speakeasy is a light-hearted show, and we think there are more to come.

Jeff Foxworthy: The Good Old Days

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 6.1

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Jeff Foxworthy’s comeback to the standup comedy scene was much awaited, and Jeff Foxworthy: The Good Old Days sure lived up to the hype. Jeff, during this hour-long show, talks about the time before people had their personal cellphones with a billion different features, a time where aging and sec education were difficult topics to approach. His concerns are similar to anyone above the age of 40 – they would talk about similar topics as he does. There’s something to watch and enjoy for every generation in this special, and we recommend this show to your watch list for this weekend.

Taylor Tomlinson: Look at You

Release Date: 2022

IMDB: 7.3

WATCH ON NETFLIX

In an industry with few female entrants, Taylor Tomlinson shook the status quo with her first special Quarter-Life Crisis. In Taylor Tomlinson: Look At You, she scores her second home run talking about topics like mental health, grief and dating through experiences closely tied to her own personal life. Taylor Tomlinson has a style of self-deprecating humor that will leave you laughing non-stop, but you’ll be sure to remember how she turns such heavy topics into a light-hearted comedy. She is a brilliant comedian who is on the rise to superstardom, and there is no reason why this special shouldn’t be on your list of shows to watch.

Maria Bamford - Old Baby

Release Date: 2017

IMDB: 5.9

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Maria Bamford has a well-established position in the world of comedy, with her self-inspired comedy. In Maria Bamford – Old Baby, Maria blends in elements of annoyance, joy, and angst into a masterful piece of comedic genius. We’ve always found her sets to be daring in regard, to find a manic form of comedy that is an acquired taste. When the comedy genre is attempting to cater to a wider, inclusive audience, Maria Bamford takes the road less taken, and we think she kills every performance. Each time we think that Maria’s done her best, she comes back up again to prove us wrong.

Norm Macdonald - Hitler’s Dog, Gossip & Trickery

Release Date: July 29, 2020

IMDB: 7.3

WATCH ON NETFLIX

We might be making a controversial statement here, but if you don’t enjoy Norm Macdonald’s material, we think you’re not going to rank well on the smartness meter. In Norm Macdonald – Hitler’s Dog, Gossip and Trickery, he has us confused with his seemingly confusing self-interruptions and old-fashioned jokes, until you realize that the greatest trick the comedian ever pulled was convincing his audience that his entire set seemed unplanned. His style of observational comedy and tickle humor is an absolute gem, and the punchlines are meant to settle after the special ends. Macdonald hit the bull’s eye with this special, we can’t think of any other way to describe it.

Jim Gaffigan - Comedy Monster

Release Date: 2021

IMDB: 6.8

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Jim Gaffigan is a master at his art- his Grammy nominations are a testament to this fact. If you’re looking for a good time watching a comedy that is well written, you will enjoy Jim Gaffigan – Comedy Monster. His effortless style of making punchlines as he casually strolls across the stage lands on the audience, and his political views and comedic takes on it can push you away, so we suggest you watch this with an open mind. The comedy is filled with his reflections on his life, family, and love for food, which is strongly influenced by the pandemic.

Michelle Wolf - Joke Show

Release Date: 2019

IMDB: 7.2

WATCH ON NETFLIX

While Michelle Wolf has a unique interpretation of daily life, what strikes a chord with us is her ability to deliver a message even when she’s not behind a desk. Michelle Wolf – Joke Show finds punchlines in vulgarity through some brilliant repurposing, and she toes the line well to not lose the audience. This dangerous balancing, well-accentuated by her shrill voice pulls in the audience closer, and she’s very good at what she does. We think Michelle is just getting started, and we think you should definitely stream this special.

Rob Schneider: Asian Momma, Mexican Kids

Release Date: 2020

IMDB: 5.5

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Rob Schneider comes to Netflix with his first stand-up special, and it will not disappoint. Rob takes us through his life as a father, hilariously painting a picture of potty training and raising his children. His switches between the Asian and the Mexican accents are smooth, and the most memorable part of the show is a cute set with his daughter from his first wife. If you’re looking for a show that can have you laughing, but also leave you with a warm sense of family, watch Asian Momma, Mexican Kids.

Jim Jefferies: Intolerant

Release Date: 2020

IMDB: 7.2

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Jim Jefferies: Intolerant is yet another example of how taking comedy to the edge can really pay off. Jim Jefferies, in his usual style, blends in funny stories about his family, a dinner date where his lactose intolerance acts up, and jokes at his younger self. The show also puts forward some lessons to think about, for example, the story of his father's progressive awakening in his seventies (we won't spoil it, don't worry). All in all, a show that you definitely shouldn't miss!

Tom Segura: Ball Hog

Release Date: 2021

IMDB: 7.3

WATCH ON NETFLIX

A comedy that plays around on the edge of what’s safe to say and what’s not as developed in an interesting way over the last couple of years. Tom Segura’s Ball Hog is a prime example of nailing that sweet balance. The Ball Hog is a masterful play of dark jokes and imagery (not for children!). The hour-long special is filled with intertwined set-ups that will smack you out of nowhere. It is impossible not to laugh throughout the special. A line to look out for is “ride or die, bitch” So if you are looking for a show that can literally have you rolling on the floor, put the Ball Hog on.

Dave Chappelle: The Closer

Release Date: 2021

IMDB: 8.1

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Dave Chappelle occupies real estate in your mind. Considered the greatest stand-up comedian of our times, The Closer is the final (supposedly) of Chappelle’s series of standup specials with Netflix. Chappelle takes us through a hilarious journey to understand how the minorities argue against each other instead of wanting the best for everyone. While some of the topics he touches on are no laughing matter, Chappelle reminds us once again that we shouldn’t take at face value what the world impresses upon us.

Nate Bargatze: The Greatest Average American

Release Date: March 18, 2021

IMDB: 7.3

WATCH ON NETFLIX

That's right. He's back... again. And once you hear what he's got to say for himself? You'll be very happy he is. In The Greatest Average American, our favorite storyteller returns to the stand-up stage to talk "Zoom comedy shows, losing his phone, hotel breakfast fails, animal caddies, new math and much more," as Netflix promised. But the truth is that Nate Bargatze's 2nd stand-up special is so much more than that. From reflecting on this past year's Covid outbreak to the relatable family struggles it called for, the raw "pandemic special is just what the doctor ordered," as one Rotten Tomatoes critic put it.

Plastic Cup Boyz: Laughing My Mask Off!

Release Date: July 27, 2021

IMDB: 5.2

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Sound like a sign of the times? That's because it is. In Laughing My Mask Off! get ready to, well, laugh your mask off as our favorite comedy trio returns to the stage to recap the past year - every Zoom call, Covid scare, and toilet paper run-in between. And while, of course, the global pandemic is no laughing matter, the Plastic Cup Boyz have managed to turn their personal experiences into one unforgettable special. So what are you waiting for? Kick back on the couch with your loved ones as Kevin Hart's prodigies remind us exactly what he first saw in them. Just please, 6 feet apart.

James Acaster: Repertoire

Release Date: 2018

IMDB: 8.5

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Who knew comedy could look so... weird? In Repertoire, get ready for a fresh take on stand-up as this oddball comedian "covers the strange, mundane and everything in between," as Netflix perfectly put it. But don't let his bluntness scare you off. As a matter of fact, James Acaster's stand-up special is so good, the Netflix gods gave him 4 1-hour shows to get the job done. Safe to say, each segment - "Recognise," "Represent," "Reset," and "Recap" - has a little something for everyone. And even if you don't find yourself agreeing with his offbeat opinions? There's a pretty good chance you'll be too busy laughing to even notice...

Sam Jay: 3 In the Morning

Release Date: 2020

IMDB: 6.5

WATCH ON NETFLIX

When you're dealing with someone who once penned SNL, you know you're in for a good time. Safe to say, that's exactly what you can expect from Sam Jay's 3 In the Morning. "I didn't want to do one just to do one. I wanted to be ready to do it," the funny lady confessed of nailing her very own Netflix special.

Sure enough, Sam Jay was more than ready to take on that Netflix stage. From her brutally honest commentary to the meticulous planning it called for, 3 In the Morning brings a whole new meaning to late-night chats. So what are you waiting for? Pop on over to the link (above) and get ready for some light-hearted fun.

Mike Birbiglia: The New One

Release Date: 2019

IMDB: 7.7

WATCH ON NETFLIX

If you caught his 2017 special, Thank God For Jokes, you already know you're in for a treat here. But if by some chance you haven't? Allow us to help you out here: Mike Birbiglia's return to our Netflix screens takes storytime to the next level. And by storytime, we mean self-deprecating tales about his journey to parenthood, of course.

"I'm not exactly handing off A+ genes here," the comedian joked during his time on stage. But while his peculiar medical conditions might not sit well with his little ones, they certainly make for hilarious stories. And we've got a feeling you'll agree with us on that one. Check out The New One here and get ready to laugh (and cringe) like never before.

Neal Brennan: 3 Mics

Release Date: 2017

IMDB: 7.9

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Being all over the place is no laughing matter - but in Neal Brennan's case, it certainly is. The comedian's special, 3 Mics, watch him switch off between 3 different mics (hence the name), while he juggles 3 different comedic techniques: 'One-Liners,' 'Emotional Stuff,' and 'Stand-Up.' Safe to say, you're in for one whirlwind of a ride here. From good ol' fashioned one-liners to hilarious confessions, Brennan knows how to keep things interesting. Expect triple times the laughs and triple times the entertainment as the comedian proves he's got lots more tricks up his sleeves than co-penning Chappelle's Show.

Jerry Seinfeld: 23 Hours to Kill

Release Date: 2020

IMDB: 6.7

WATCH ON NETFLIX

If there's anyone who can make Poptarts and iPhones funny, it's this guy. Jerry Seinfeld's 23 Hours to Kill is exactly as outrageous as you'd expect it to be. But that's also why we can't get enough of it. From restaurant reviews to texting mishaps, nothing is off-limits when it comes to Seinfeld's latest special. But that's not the only reason you'll want to catch this one: as Roger Ebert perfectly put it, Jerry's latest time on our stage is as comforting as it is hilarious - "like catching up with an old friend, something all of us wish we could do in person in 2020 more than we can."

Hannah Gadsby: Nanette

Release Date: 2018

IMDB: 8.3

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Planned initially as Hannah Gadsby's final stand-up show, Nanette was a roaring success that propelled the hilarious Australian native into the spotlight. The comedy special is widely regarded as funny yet socially relevant. The comedian has received wide critical acclaim ever since debuting the comedy specials on Netflix, as her stand-up focused on many talked-about topics. From talking about queer issues to the comedian's non-binary conformation, raising LGBTQ+ and gender awareness were some of the main goals, but with a whole lot of humor of course. Still, the way she did it was very unexpected. Apparently, Nanette is best understood if you watch it without knowing too much, so we won't spoil it any further.

Rhys Nicholson: Live at the Athenaeum

Release Date: 2020

IMDB: 7.6

WATCH ON NETFLIX

You can bet that Rhys Nicholson is the perfect go-to for a giggle. And that's exactly what you'll get while watching Live at the Athenaeum. The stand-up show involved a lot of self-deprecating humor about the comedian, making it practically impossible not to laugh. Like saying that the only way he'll ever attend a house party is if someone there will be so "wrong" that they'll make him feel better about himself.

Rhys Nicholson managed to cover countless unrelated topics, from horse tranquilizers and angry letters from viewers to more serious subjects like his mental health and gender struggles. But don't fret; He did it in his signature style which made it, according to his fans, totally hilarious. But don't take our word for it, go see for yourselves.

Kevin Hart: Zero F**ks Given

Release Date: 2020

IMDB: 6.0

WATCH ON NETFLIX

The COVID-19 pandemic managed to take its toll on the best of us, even Kevin Hart. Well, at least that's how he described it in his Netflix Special, Zero F**ks Given. The stand-up show was also appropriately recorded in his own home, with the funnyman in his jammies. He went on to talk about family life, but it didn't stop there. 

Hart also opened up about how his "fall from fame" affected him and how he coped with it in his everyday life. The comedian then told many stories ranging from his short boxing career to eating pizza with Jerry Seinfeld. For anyone planning to watch this special, rest assured, Kevin Hart will never disappoint you.

Bo Burnham: Inside

Release Date: 2021

IMDB: 8.8

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Ready for a hilarious one-man show? Because that is quite literally what Inside has to offer. Burnham filmed his latest special while quarantining during the pandemic and did so without a crew or an audience. The whole thing was written, directed, filmed, and edited by the comedian. If you're not impressed yet, just watch the clip below because this is definitely one of the best comedy specials on Netflix.

That's right. Inside isn't just any special; it is a musical comedy. The talented icon wrote up some hilariously relatable songs that touch on everything about daily life during the pandemic, from FaceTiming with his mom to deteriorating mental health. This is one show you don't want to miss.

Bill Burr: Paper Tiger

Release Date: 2019

IMDB: 8.2

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Bill Burr may be a household name in the world of unfiltered comedy, and his 2019 Netflix special Paper Tiger highlighted it much more. The stand-up show, filmed in front of a packed house at the Royal Albert Hall in London, had some heavy satire, in the Bill Burr style we know and love.

The savage comedian made jokes that featured satire on anything from "Michelle Obama's book tour" to "male feminists." The funnyman also explained to the crowd why his personality might very well destroy his marriage, but we won't spoil it. For anyone wanting some good satirical fun, then Paper Tiger is a safe bet..

Tiffany Haddish: Black Mitzvah

Release Date: 2019

IMDB: 6.2

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Tiffany Haddish graced her first-ever Netflix special Black Mitzvah at the end of 2019 after a decade-long career in comedy. And boy did she make her audience laugh! The funny-gal has an Emmy nomination and Grammy for Best Comedy Album to prove it. The stand-up show stayed true to its name as it explored Haddish's newly discovered Jewish Heritage.

After finding out her dad is of Jewish ancestry, the comedian decided it was time to reclaim her roots and have a Bat Mitzvah. Hilariously having dubbed it as "Black Mitzvah," Haddish talked about finding herself, her relationship with fame, and how the comedy special was long overdue. Oh, and did we mention that she sang Hava Nagila in it too?

Taylor Tomlinson: Quarter-Life Crisis

Release Date: 2020

IMDB: 7.4

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Taylor Tomlinson finally gave her fans what they wanted after she debuted her talent on Netflix's The Comedy Lineup Part 1, a full-fledged comedy special. Meet Quarter-Life Crisis; Celebrating her 25th year on this planet, Taylor opened up about the problems that arose, having reached the first quarter of her life. And yes, she does it in her signature Tomlinson fashion.

Tomlinson's act centers around her 20s not being the "best years in life," and she might be onto something. Additionally, she dished out jokes about realistic relationship goals. She also joked about self-improvement and other millennial problems that likely made the act more relatable to younger generations. With that being said, this new face in comedy seems to be doing quite a lot at age 25.

Dave Chappelle: Sticks & Stones

Release Date: 2019

IMDB: 8.5

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Many Dave Chappelle fans can agree that he's had a long hiatus. That's probably why the comedian strutted on the stage looking like Tom Cruise in Top Gun, giving viewers an unforgettable experience. His Netflix comedy special Sticks & Stones reintroduced Chappelle's famous impressions of people and races, all while talking about politics (and much more).

2006 was the last time Chappelle formally showcased his comedic skills on his self-titled show. Thankfully, his Netflix special showed no signs of rust. The audience and critics alike seemed to have realized that as well, with quite a few people commenting on how Chapelle "did not change with the times." But you can be the judge of that.

Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King

Release Date: 2017

IMDB: 8.3

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Now, the world of stand-up comedy has never exactly been kind to the easily offended. But Hasan took inappropriate humor to a whole new level with his first stand-up comedy special, Homecoming King. Consider yourselves warned... if you prefer comedians with a filter, then we're afraid Minhaj might not be your guy. But if you can take a joke without writing an angry Twitter rant shortly after, then you've come to the right place.

The Netflix stand-up features Hasan using heartbreaking and hilarious anecdotes to tell his life story. Growing up as an Indian-American-Muslim, the comedian had to develop quite a sense of humor as a subject to bullying, racism, and of course, meeting the demanding expectations of his immigrant parents. With a whopping 8.3 rating on IMDb, you can set your expectations pretty high.

Aziz Ansari: Right Now

Release Date: 2019

IMDB: 7.5

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Right Now has gotta be one of Netflix's best stand-up comedy specials to date. With the hilarious Aziz Ansari sharing his two cents on everything including his relationship with granny and grandpa, to his opinion on the alleged sexual misconduct of R.Kelly and MJ (too soon?), you can bet that this comedy special will get a giggle out of you... or perhaps a lawsuit?

Filmed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Aziz and his brutal honesty filled the room with some real talk on the hypocrisy of modern culture. And although shots were fired, Ansari revealed that he ultimately hopes everybody, including himself, aspires to be a better person... As for the rest of us? Well according to Aziz, “We’re all sh*tty people.” Can we get an amen?

Richard Pryor: Live in Concert

Release Date: 1979

IMDB: 8.1

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Directed by Jeff Margolis, this hilarious stand-up special marked a moment to remember in comedy history. Richard Pryor: Live in Concert is still as good as it was back in the 70s, and even earned Pryor a 5th place nomination for the National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Actor. And we're not the only ones who think its good. Funny guy Eddie Murphy once called it "the single greatest stand-up performance ever captured on film." Intrigued? We bet.

Richard's classic covered every topic worth discussing, from race to the police, all the way to his favorite target: which just so happens to be himself. Dubbed as a classic, this special was also the very first full-length, feature movie consisting of only stand-up comedy. So what are you waiting for? Go back in time with Richard Pryor and enjoy the late legend's best work.

Tom Segura: Disgraceful

Release Date: 2018

IMDB: 7.6

WATCH ON NETFLIX

If the title of this hilarious comedy stand-up special didn't put it in a nutshell for you, then allow us to elaborate. Tom Segura: Disgraceful gives a voice to all the dirty thoughts that might be swimming in your head. But the ones you would never ever say out loud. Interested? Well, you should be. The 74-minute special received a 7.4 on IMDb, with some viewers claiming that this was some of Tom's best work.

With a blunt take on parenthood, parking lot power struggles, and even good ol' porn, Tom definitely gave his audience some food for thought. His "try it out on camera" style is evident throughout the entire special, so you can bet that the one-liners are stronger than they are dangerous. But don't take our word for it, we'll let you decide on this one.

Nate Bargatze: The Tennessee Kid

Release Date: 2019

IMDB: 7.6

WATCH ON NETFLIX

Storytime is never a bad idea. But when it comes to Nate Bargatze? Leave it to the legendary comedian to turn his childhood mishaps into a hilarious 1-hour special. In The Tennessee Kid, expect a tad of nostalgia and a whole lot of laughs as the famous funny guy talks "air travel, cheap weddings, college football, chocolate milk and the perils of ordering coffee," as Netflix teased. And once you're done hearing him out? "You'll probably want to go back and watch it all over again," as Decider perfectly put it. Happy streaming.

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney: Oh, Hello on Broadway

Release Date: 2017

IMDB: 7.7

WATCH ON NETFLIX

When John Mulaney said, "theater is the hot new thing," well, he wasn't wrong. In Oh, Hello on Broadway, the Hollywood funny guy and fellow comedian Nick Kroll star in a play within a play. But forget the ones you may have seen before - their quirky special - something they've dubbed "a memoir for the stage" - is like nothing we've ever seen. From their time playing senior citizens living in the Big Apple to the hilarious misadventures, it calls for, go and grab that hearing aid and tune in to this Netflix gem. PAGE BREAK
