For Netflix latest addition to their stand-up catalogue, Michael Che’s upcoming comedy special will be added. Earlier this June Netflix included several specials from The Shaq All-Star comedy franchise, and they look to continue in becoming a leading platform for stand-ups. In an interview with The Laugh Button, Michael shared that his first ever full-legnth special will be premiering on Netflix.
TLB:So your special, is it coming out through Comedy Central? Netflix?
MC: “It’s through Netflix.”
TLB: Yeah a lot of specials are going that route. Why not Comedy Central?
MC: They [Netflix] pay a lot, but doing a special isn’t really about trying to make money. Netflix just gives so much freedom to do whatever you want.
Netflix seems like an innovative route many comedians have been taking as of recently, the networks subscribers is currently close to 58 million worldwide.
