The 10 Best Stand Up Comedy Specials Available in Netflix Now
Stand Up Shows on Netflix

Netflix has a wide selection of standup comedy. Here are the best Stand Up specials you need to watch on Netflix now.

There are dozens of Stand Up Comedy specials on Netflix. Stand Up programs are one of my most favorite things to watch winding down in the evening. Not all comedians are making me laugh. I have picked my top 10 Netflix comedy specials that I full heartedly recommend. Not everybody likes the same humor. 

My list features very different comedians. You will not like all of them and you might miss your favorite comedian in this list. I am sure though that there are several specials in the list that will have you laugh tears while watching.

Find below my picks for the Top 10 Stand Up specials on Netflix complete with trailer of each show. The ten listed programs are not ranked, they are equally great in their own way.

Jim Jefferies - FreeDumb

Australian comedian Jim Jefferies has his second Stand Up special on Netflix since July 1. It is one of the funniest Stand Up Specials on Netflix ever. He says c#nt a lot. He outraged the gun lobby with his previous program, making him more famous than ever.

John Mulaney - The Comeback Kid

This is classic, straight forward and clean comedy. John Mulaney is hilarious and witty. His program does not need offensive jokes to shine.

Anthony Jeselnik - Thoughts and Prayers

If you love offensive jokes, Anthony Jeslnik is giving them to you in the coolest way possible. 

Chelsea Handler - Uganda be Kidding Me

The comedian recalls her trip to Africa (She always wanted to know where rappers come from...) in the most raunchy and obscene way possible, making it one of the most hilarious comedy specials on Netflix.

Aziz Ansari - Live at Madison Square Garden

This is the venue - Madison Square Garden, and famous comedian Aziz Ansari brings the house down.

Iliza Shlesinger - Freezing Hot

Shlesinger is pure energy. She dives into things girl do like obsessive Pinterest pinning. 

Kevin Hart - Let me explain

Actor and comedian Kevin Hart needs no introduction. Chris Rock called him out at the Oscars, as they guy who has always work. "Let me explain" shows Kevin Hart perform at the Madison Square Garden. It is already a classic.

Demetri Martin - Live at the time

This comedian is killing it with one-liner jokes. It is zinger after the other. You don't have time to catch your breath. It is hilarious and different to the story tellers. "I have an L-shaped sofa - lower case." 

Bill Burr - I'm sorry you feel that way

Burr explains in his unfiltered comedy that too many childhood hugs may be the ultimate downfall of man and that 85% of you have to go solve the population problem. Bill Burr rips into religions without holding back as well as explaining how to survive the zombie apocalypse. Yes. "I'm sorry you feel that way" is a wild ride.

Jimmy Carr - Funny Business

Jimmy Carr delivers in his Netflix Stand-Up Funny Business his deadpan delivery and wickedly funny one-liners to a sold-out audience at the UK's Hammersmith Apollo.

Brent Morin - I'm Brent Morin

Morin is new, but he is hilarious. He has something to say about everything including how it is baffling that kids are sleeping with teachers these days. "We could have done that?"

You can find all Netflix Stand Up comedies on

Note that the Stand Up comedy selection varies for each region you access Netflix. US viewers have deeper selection on US comedians than for instance German users. Netflix is featuring local stand up comedians in addition to American acts.
