The past few years have seen a rigorous expansion of comedy programming on streaming services of all shapes and sizes, but stand-up comedy is definitely getting its due after years of neglect. Hence why there are hundreds of titles in Netflix’s stand-up category (as of this writing). And while that seems like a lot, this total is constantly climbing with new licensing deals and private offerings being added on a regular basis. Even for budding comedy fans, there’s a lot of must-see specials to choose from.
