Welcome to Comedy Now, a weekly column cataloging what comedy fans should know about what’s available in the streaming world. Whether it’s a brand new special, an old classic, or the oddball show that defies categorization, we’ll list as many as we can for your enjoyment right here. Who knows? We may even throw in a few non-streamable bits on occasion, like tour announcements from our favorite comics. You can check out last week’s column here.
Chris D’Elia: Man on Fire (Netflix)
NBC’s Undateable may be no more, but Justin Bieber’s favorite comedian Chris D’Elia hasn’t let such upsets sour his stand-up career. His followup to 2015’s Incorrigible, the new Netflix special Man on Fire, is now available to stream on the leading platform. Aside from doing comedy shows, the former Whitney co-star will also feature in The Female Brain, the directorial debut of that series’ creator and star Whitney Cummings. The new film, which Cummings co-wrote with D’Elia’s fellow Netflixer Neal Brennan, recently premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
