Chris Rock goes where no comedian has gone before: live on Netflix.
The streaming giant said Thursday that Rock will be the first artist to perform at the company’s first global live streaming event. The comedy special is scheduled to air in early 2023, but a few other details have been revealed.
“Chris Rock is one of the most iconic and important comedic voices of our generation,” Robbie Praw, Netflix’s vice president of stand-up and comedy formats, said in a statement.
“We are thrilled that the entire world can experience a Chris Rock stand-up comedy event and be a part of Netflix history. This will be an unforgettable moment and we are so honored to have Chris carry this torch.”
This will be the first significant test of live streaming on Netflix, which could open the door for other shows to get the live treatment.
It will be Rock’s second stand-up special on Netflix. The first, “Chris Rock: Tamborine,” debuted in February 2018.
