Chris Rock Stand-Up Comedy Special To Air On Netflix
Get ready to laugh out loud with Chris Rock this Valentine's Day with his first stand-up comedy special since 2008.
Chris Rock: Tambourine will air Feb. 14 on Netflix. Filmed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York City with direction by Bo Burnham, the comedy special is the first of a two-show deal Rock made with Netflix in 2016, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The three-time GRAMMY winner's last comedy special, Kill The Messenger, aired on HBO in 2008.
Rock embarked on his first-stand-up tour in nine years in 2017. His Total Blackout tour reached 26 North American cities, including Indianapolis, Atlanta, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Denver, New Orleans, Cincinnati, and Pittsburgh, among others.
The comedian's most recent GRAMMY win came for Best Comedy Album for Never Scared (2005).
"Chris Rock is a beloved actor and director, and his remarkable stand-up makes him comic royalty," said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos in a statement. "There is no one like him."
