Netflix has announced a trio of stand-up comedy debuts for the coming weeks, as comics from around the world take to the streamer to share their sets.
Comedian Jo Koy will take Netflix to the Philippines in his new special, Jo Koy: In His Elements. Koy celebrates his heritage by telling jokes about life as a Filipino-American while highlighting the culture of Manila. Koy uses this opportunity to shine a light on other Filipino-American performers by welcoming to the stage famed breakdancer Ronnie, Grammy-winning producer !llmind, singer/songwriter Iñigo Pascual, and comedians Andrew Lopez, Joey Guila, and Andrew Orolfo.
Jo Koy: In His Elements premieres globally on Netflix on 12th June.
George Lopez will return to his stand-up roots with We’ll Do It For Half, his Netflix original comedy special debut. Lopez delivers an exploration of race, politics, and life lessons to be learned from the Latino community; especially the elders. Filmed at The Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, the one-hour special dissects cultural differences, emotional support animals, gender reveal parties, elevator etiquette and much more.
It premieres on Netflix on 30th June.
And completing the set is comedian Eric Andre, who presents his very first Netflix original stand-up special, Legalize Everything. Taking the stage in New Orleans, Andre breaks the boundaries of comedy as he critiques the war on drugs, the war on sex, and the war on fart jokes! You can stream that on 23rd June.
