Netflix has confirmed the release dates for four new stand-up comedy specials, including ones from Hannibal Buress, Jimmy Carr, and Patton Oswalt Hannibal Buress, the comedian known best for his viral routine regarding the many rape allegations against Bill Cosby, will host his Comedy Camisado, which will be available starting Friday, February 5. Buress has found plenty of success over the past few years, including a sold-out national theater stand-up tour which he just completed, a TV series, and a successful run on.
Netflix’s Original content library has swelled in the last few years and that’s partly down to its platform of comedians with some iconic names presenting their sets to the global Netflix audience.
The first Netflix Original standup came in August 2012 and has been regularly added since then. Every month, Netflix seems to add between 2-6 stand-up shows which presents a lot of variety.
Their plan for 2017 is set to continue but we’ve got a few massive names who will be joining the lineup. Because we don’t know much about a lot of these shows, we can only really list the upcoming performers who have been confirmed for 2017 sets.
Here we go: • Jen Kirkman will bring her show ‘Just Keep Livin’?’ to Netflix on January 3rd, 2017. • Jim Gaffigan will be presenting his show Cinco on January 10th, 2017 on Netflix • Neal Brennan will bring his show 3 Mics to Netflix on January 17th. • Gad Elmaleh has announced he’ll release a Netflix Original show called Gad Gone Wild on January 24th. • Cristela Alonzo will bring her Lower Classy performance to Netflix on January 24th. • Vir Das is an Indian comic who will likely release his announced show in 2017 • Tracy Morgan confirmed on Howard Stern last summer (after recovering from his recent accident) that he was working with Netflix to bring a stand-up gig to Netflix in 2017.
• Chris Rock has he’s producing two shows, at least one of which is likely to arrive in 2017. • Dave Chappelle who’s basically disappeared since his HBO show has confirmed he’s working on three Netflix stand-up shows of which a few will likely premiere in 2017. Sadly, that’s all we have in terms of names so far for 2017. Netflix Original stand-ups tend to be less publicized and announcements usually arrive fair close to their release dates.

best dating comedy stand up on netflix uk 2017 - The 10 Best Stand
What’s more, some of these comedians have UK shows coming up that you can still get tickets for. Need a good laugh? Here’s our pick for the 10 best stand-up comedy specials on Netflix UK.
1. Dave Chappelle: The Age of Spin With four incredible Dave Chappelle comedy specials released within months of each other, it wasn’t easy to pick just one. But Chappelle’s first comeback special had to be the one to make the cut (and speaking of cut, don’t adjust your set - that is in fact what Dave Chappelle looks like now).
Once you get over the funnyman’s ripped new look, you’re in for a hilarious comedy rollercoaster ride. Love the show? Dave Chappelle and former ‘The Daily Show’ host Jon Stewart are performing in London and Dublin this October.
2. Chris Rock: Tamborine Chris Rock goes into some deeply personal issues from his life in this hilarious comedy special. The comic turned movie star speaks candidly about getting rejected by Rihanna, his infidelity and the need to punch his son in the face. WATCH: 3. Chris D’Elia: Man on Fire Chris D’Elia - the stand-up comedian who by his own admission looks like a “tired eagle” - is a tour de force in his latest Netflix special.
‘Man on Fire’ - a reference to the Denzel Washington film - sees D’Elia on top form, clearly enjoying himself as much as the audience Chris D’Elia is currently on tour in the US and Canada.
Get tickets if you’ll be over that way or fancy making the trip. 4. Hannah Gadsby: Nanette So this comedian came out of nowhere… Hannah Gadsby’s anti-comedy comedy special is both hysterical and poignant as the Aussie comic lampoons herself and questions the wider implications to the LGBT+ community of doing so.
5. Jerry Before Seinfeld Before he was spending his days in cars getting coffee with other comedians, Jerry Seinfeld was one of the most successful stand-ups of all time. In this special, the king of TV sitcoms takes us back to where it all began as his stand-up comedy performance is interspersed with clips of his old stomping grounds in Long Island, New York.
‘Jerry Before Seinfeld’ is a great watch for those fascinated by the inner workings of comedy. Planning a trip to Las Vegas this year? Make it extra special with tickets to see Jerry live. 6. Katherine Ryan: In Trouble You’ll probably recognise Katherine from TV comedy panel shows like ‘8 Out Of 10 Cats’, ‘Mock The Week’ and ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’.
The former Hooters waitress - who was fired from the US restaurant chain for writing “club sandwiches not seals” on a menu board - proves she’s found her true vocation (despite her jokes to the contrary). Katherine Ryan is performing at the Garrick Theatre in London in September and October.
Don't miss it! 7. Bill Burr: I’m Sorry You Feel That Way If you’re not familiar with Bill Burr, you might recognise him as the voice of eternally angry father-of-three Frank in Netflix animated comedy ‘F is for Family’. The Boston comic decided to give his fourth stand-up comedy special the black and white treatment for a more “grimy” look. No topic is off limits for the flame-haired funnyman as he jokes about religion, childhood and his relationship with his long-suffering wife.
Wiping away tears of laughter? Plan a trip to the US and catch Bill Burr at one of his tour dates. 8. Ricky Gervais: Humanity Before his TV and film work had the entertainment industry showering him with awards, Ricky Gervais had a pretty successful stand-up comedy career. In his first comedy special since 2010’s 'Science', the controversial comedian delves into God, Twitter fights and his own history of telling inflammatory jokes.
Not for the easily offended. Speaking of which... RELATED: 9. Anthony Jeselnik: Thoughts and Prayers Anthony Jeselnik’s brand of humour is also not for fans of political correctness.
But the ‘Comedy Central Roast’ star’s one-man show is a delight for those who like their jokes on the darker side. You were warned... Survived the comedy special without writing an angry tweet? Why not see if you make it though a live show? 10. Bo Burnham: Make Happy Bo Burnham started his career putting out silly songs on YouTube before blossoming into the best comedy-musician the US has to offer.
Enjoy the quirky youngster’s take on the problems with Pringle can dimensions and his hip-hop rendition of ‘I’m A Little Teapot’.
