Netflix is ready to bring the laughter back with the return of its comedy festival “Netflix Is a Joke Fest.” Scheduled from May 2 to May 12, 2024, the festival boasts an impressive lineup of over 300 live events spread across 35 venues in Los Angeles. After its successful debut in 2022, the festival is set to be even more significant this year, showcasing the best in comedy.
Produced in collaboration with Live Nation, the festival will feature some of the biggest names in the industry. The Hollywood Bowl will host eight nights of comedy extravaganzas, including the likes of Kevin Hart, and Trevor Noah, among others. Notably, the Bowl will also host special events such as “Chris Rock’s Table Reads.”
Meanwhile, The Forum will be the venue for the much-anticipated “G.R.O.A.T. – The Greatest Roast of All Time,” centered around NFL legend Tom Brady and hosted by Jeff Ross. Other iconic locations like The Greek Theatre, The Palladium, The Wiltern, The Dolby, and The Orpheum Theatre will also house performances by celebrated comedians, including Mike Epps, Wanda Sykes, and many more.
The festival is not confined to these iconic venues alone. The extensive lineup spans across various theaters, including The Dolby, The Montalban, and many more. From Katt Williams’ “The Dark Matter Tour,” Chris Redd at the Bourbon Room, and Nicole Byer at Troubadour each show promises a unique and uproarious experience.
Tickets for “Netflix Is a Joke” go on sale starting at 10 a.m. PT on December 15, and the lineup is expected to grow even more with additional venues yet to be announced.
