Netflix’s library of stand-up specials has now surpassed over 300 titles and 2023 has over a dozen of new specials added thus far. Below is a full recap of all the new stand-up comedy specials Netflix has added throughout the year.

You may notice that Netflix has significantly slowed the release of stand-up specials in recent years, and that’s painfully clear in 2023. In the first six months of 2023, Netflix only released 16 new stand-up specials, whereas in the same timespan in 2022, there were 33 specials.

This is almost certainly a direct effect of reduced payments Netflix is forking out for specials as outlined by the WSJ in late 2022.
