The Los Angeles run of “Netflix Is a Joke” is scheduled for May 2 through May 12, 2024. During the streamer’s first live special, the pre-show for “Chris Rock: Selective Outrage,” the second installment of the comedy festival was revealed.

The festival will once again bring together the biggest talents in comedy for a unique, 10-day event from May 2 through May 12, 2024, at dozens of locations throughout LA. The inaugural fest took place in April 2022, selling more than 260,000 tickets and thus making it the biggest comedy event in the U.S.

The 12-day festival boasted 295 shows and 336 comedians across more than 35 venues in LA, and tied for the longest run of shows at the Hollywood Bowl. Its return comes as the streamer continues to push into the live comedy space. Highlights of the programming also included “Stand Out: An LGBTQ Celebration” and conversation/performance with the “Cobra Kai” cast

Rock’s live comedy special was announced by Netflix back in November. Since then, the platform has set a pre-show featuring Ronny Chieng, Arsenio Hall, Leslie Jones, Deon Cole and others hosting “The Show Before the Show” beginning at 6:30 p.m. PT, which will stream live from The World Famous Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip.

Amy Schumer, Cedric the Entertainer, Ice-T, Jerry Seinfeld, Sir Paul McCartney, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes, and other performers will perform routines during that half-hour show.

Then, Rock will begin his show, where he reportedly opens up about the infamous Oscar slap, at 7 p.m. PT, followed by a post-show aptly titled “The Show After The Show,” with special guests like David Spade, Dana Carvey, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and JB Smoove.
