Netflix is home to some of the best and most-diverse stand-up specials – here we run the rule over some of these Netflix originals that really grabbed our attention.

All are available at netflix.com

 

Doug Benson – Doug Dynasty

The current king of stoner comedy and rising podcast star (also check out Getting Doug With High) showcases his laconic stand-up style.

Chelsea Handler : Uganda Be Kidding Me

The chat show firebrand proves she’s not just funny behind a desk or in front of a studio audience, but on a live stage as well.

Aziz Ansari: Buried Alive

Hugely likeable star simply oozes charisma in this special (not to mention everything else he touches).

Jim Jefferies : BARE

Easily offended? Run for your life. Well, watch something else. Jefferies is sensational at what he does, as he goes through – rather than close to – the bone.

Chelsea Peretti – One of the Greats

Peretti is a joy in the award-winning Brooklyn Nine Nine, and is just as entertaining as a stand-up (and check out her sweet motorbike skills).

Craig Ferguson – I’m Here to Help

People forget that Ferguson’s roots are in live comedy, long before the Scot became one of the kingpins of the US chat show scene.
