Netflix, the world’s leading internet entertainment service, will bring together 47 comedians from 13 regions in an unprecedented stand-up comedy event series premiering in 2019.  Each comedian will perform a half-hour stand-up special, some of which will be recorded at the upcoming Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, with sets also being taped in Brazil, Mexico, India, Germany and The Netherlands.
