Netflix Comedians Check in with Neal Brennan

Plenty of industries are hurting because of the coronavirus pandemic, and that includes entertainment. But while movies and TV shows are starting to get back into production, live stand-up comedy shows are still mostly non-existent because gathering a bunch of people in a single room to open their mouths and guffaw incessantly isn’t the smartest movie when there’s a contagious virus kicking around. But Netflix recently put together a little video to hold us over with some of their biggest comedy stars.

Netflix asked comedian Neal Brennan to check in with some of his fellow comics like Adam Sandler, Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Tig Notaro, John Mulaney, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Tiffany Haddish, David Letterman, Wanda Sykes, Sarah Silverman, Steve Martin, and many more. Brennan wanted to provide some levity not just for the comedians stuck at home without an audience, but also for their fans who miss seeing the on stage, so he asks them all about their favorite jokes, comics, previous jobs, and more.
