What are the best stand-up comedy specials on Netflix you can watch right now? Netflix has a huge and growing collection of comedy specials from comedians around the world. This includes some of the most popular names in the industry such as Trevor Noah, Kevin Hart, Vir Das, and Jerry Seinfeld, among others. The global streaming platform continues to work on its library, collaborating with popular comedians whose live performances around the world are filmed to air as Netflix specials.


As a fan of good stand-up comedy, I’ve put together a list of the best comedy specials you can watch on Netflix right now. The list includes popular industry names who have recently released specials on Netflix, including Indian comedian Vir Das and South African Trevor Noah, who rose to prominence as a longtime host of The Comedy Central’s Daily Show. Read on for our list of the best stand-up comedy specials on Netflix.

South African comedian Trevor Noah’s latest special covers a variety of topics, including learning to speak German to surprise his Swiss dad, ordering Indian food in Scotland and more. The comedian, who rose to fame as the soft-spoken, straight-talking host of The Daily Show from 2015-2022, returns to his roots with this comedy special filmed in Toronto, Canada, and also tackles his iconic brand of political satire and comedy.

Filmed live in New York, but with short clips captured from the audience during his live broadcast in his hometown of Mumbai, Vir Das talks in detail about his upbringing in India, his early work in films and controversies around his remarks when speaking abroad. The special is his fourth on Netflix, following a supporting role in The Bubble, where he plays a hotel manager hosting a film crew during the height of pandemic restrictions.

Among the hottest young and upcoming stand-up comedians right now, Taylor Tomlinson jokes about relationships and breakups, while putting a hilarious spin on otherwise serious mental health topics. She also often makes things a little awkward with her unique brand of edgy humor, but wraps it up with punchlines that keep the show gripping throughout. This is Tomlinson’s second special on Netflix, following Quarter Life Crisis in 2020.

After hosting a few impressive episodes of his political talk show Patriot Act which was canceled by Netflix in 2020, Indian-American comedian Minhaj returns to stand-up comedy with his latest special, The King’s Jester. The show makes frequent references to its controversial episodes of the Patriot Act and global royalty, also touching on concepts of free speech and raising a family within the context of its own experiences.

Perhaps among the most underrated comedians on Netflix right now, Sebastian Maniscalco’s unique body language, expressions, and physical movements make his jokes even funnier. The latest special talks about his Italian-American heritage, family life, and more, and it’s worth noting that Netflix recently added some of its older shows to the platform.
