Netflix is bringing out the big guns for their 2022 Netflix is a Joke Comedy Festival. The streaming service will have 130 artists performing in over 25 of Los Angeles’ iconic venues as the festival returns to the stage.
The festival promises the insane amount of talent and shows, plus “fan activations and special events.” The list of artists includes several mega stars including some who are a hot topic right now (Dave Chappelle, Pete Davidson, John Mulaney, Seth Rogen), industry legends (David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Ray Romano, Tina Fey, Chris Rock, Amy Poehler), and crowd favorites (Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, Patton Oswalt, Hasan Minhaj, Kevin Hart, Margaret Cho, Mike Birbiglia, Kevin Smith, Bill Burr, Amy Schumer), plus many more.
The venues include Dodger Stadium, Hollywood Bowl, The Greek Theatre, The Forum, Crypto.com Arena (aka Staples Center), Hollywood Palladium, The Wiltern, YouTube Theater, The Laugh Factory, The Troubadour, The Improv and more.
Gabriel Iglesias will headline the Dodger Stadium show, making his the first comedian ever to headline at the ballpark. His performance – along with several others – will be filmed for an upcoming special.
Despite recent controversies, Netflix will have Dave Chappelle headline the Hollywood Bowl show, but it will not be recorded.
The final show of the event will be recorded for a special honoring the “greats of stand-up” including George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Joan Rivers, and Robin Williams.
