Netflix teams up with Chris Rock for first live event

Netflix is joining forces with Chris Rock to dip its toes in live programming next year.

While the details are still sketchy, the comedian is set to become the first person to perform a comedy special live on the streaming service early next year.

“Chris Rock is one of the most iconic and important comedic voices of our generation,” Robbie Praw, Netflix’s VP stand-up and comedy formats, said in a statement.

“We’re thrilled the entire world will be able to experience a live Chris Rock comedy event and be a part of Netflix history. This will be an unforgettable moment and we’re so honoured that Chris is carrying this torch.”
