In an official statement made on Thursday (Nov. 10), Netflix has announced that Chris Rock will make history as the first individual to do a special live on their streaming service. Said event is expected to take place early 2023. Robbie Praw, Netflix’s vice president of stand-up and comedy formats, spoke on what will become a historic achievement for the company:

Chris Rock is one of the most iconic and important comedic voices of our generation. We’re thrilled the entire world will be able to experience a live Chris Rock comedy event and be a part of Netflix history. This will be an unforgettable moment and we’re so honored that Chris is carrying this torch.”
