Netflix is a Joke is a wrap! The streaming network’s first comedy festival brought loads of laughter to Los Angeles with “336 comedians, 295 shows and 35+ venues”– and with the state of the world, we needed it. The Dave Chappelle incident might have got most of the media attention, but there were other noteworthy moments. From Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias making history filming his special in front of the largest audience ever at Dodger Stadium, to Pete Davidson finally weaving Kanye into his stand-up, to John Mulaney talking about his intervention and rehab at both the Forum and the Hollywood Bowl, to Seth Rogen doing star-studded table reads, to intimate chats with Larry David and David Letterman, to a couple Chris Rock pop-ins, the big names came together for this very big, very funny event. A lot of Netflix is a Joke’s shows will be coming to Netflix in the form of televised specials soon, so stay tuned.
