Another Netflix Original is set to depart the service globally soon with the 2014 stand-up special from Chelsea Peretti set to depart the service globally in October 2021.
Chelsea Peretti: One of the Greats served as one of the earliest Netflix released stand-up specials releasing on Netflix globally on November 14th, 2014.
Now almost six years later, the stand-up special is currently scheduled to be removed from Netflix on October 31st, 2021.
Never watched the special before? Here’s what you can expect if you plan to watch before it departs.
“Chelsea Peretti brings her unusual take on the hour-long special exclusively to Netflix in “One of the Greats.” Filmed live at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, her unique writing, performance style and voice shine in this dark, silly, tightly-constructed show. Opening a new window into the Brooklyn 99 star’s wry comic mind, “One of the Greats” showcases Peretti’s diverse talents as an actor, standup, writer, and motorcycle enthusiast.”
The stand-up special was produced by New Wave Entertainment Television and was directed by Lance Bangs.
The Netflix trailer for the special is still available online as of the time of publishing and Netflix’s Netflix is a Joke brand that was posting clips from the special throughout 2020 on their YouTube channel.
If you’re wondering why a Netflix Original special is leaving Netflix, you’d be forgiven as it’s slightly confusing. The simple answer is that although the special is labeled as a Netflix Original, it was essentially licensed exclusively for a fixed period of time. As we’ve covered extensively, there have been dozens of Netflix Originals that have departed the service.
This isn’t the first Netflix Original stand-up to have been removed either. Nick Offerman: American Ham was one of the first specials to have been removed and last year saw the removal of both of the Russell Peters Netflix specials.
The good news is that Chelsea Peretti can be found in other Netflix shows. She lends her voice to the Big Mouth cast, featured in the Netflix stand-up special Seth Rogen’s Hilarity for Charity and even voiced in Netflix’s kids series, Harvey Street Kids.
