Chris Rock to make history with Netflix

On Saturday, Mar. 4, Chris Rock will make history as the first ever live global streaming event for Netflix. The comedian will perform "Chris Rock: Selective Outrage" at the Hippodrome Theatre in Baltimore, MD. The show will be accompanied by a pre-show hosted by Ronny Chieng, Arsenio Hall, Leslie Jones and Dean Cole, as well as a post-show hosted by David Spade and Dana Carvey, alongside Hall, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and JB Smoove. Rock's performance marks his sixth standup special and his second for Netflix after 2018's "Tamborine," directed by Bo Burnham.

The special will likely address Rock's being slapped at last year's Academy Awards, and will feature surprise guests, including Amy Schumer, Cedric the Entertainer, Ice-T, Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart, Matthew McConaughey, Sir Paul McCartney, Sarah Silverman and Wanda Sykes.

Netflix released a 30-second teaser for the highly anticipated standup set, in which Rock is alone in a dressing room, staring into a mirror, when a voice announces, “Chris, they’re ready for you.” The show streams live on Netflix Mar. 4, and you just need a Netflix account (or a password) to access it.
