Jamie Foxx, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Hart, and Martin Lawrence will headline Netflix’s first-ever comedy festival, called “Netflix may be a Joke Fest.”
The festival will run from April 27 to May 3, and shows will happen in several venues all across l. a… there’ll even be Q&A’s during the event, also as sketch comedy showcases and podcast recordings.

There will be quite 100 live comedy performances for the festival also, and they’ll be held in a minimum of 20 different venues across the town. Other comedians scheduled to require the stage during that week include Marlon Wayans, Wanda Sykes, Arsenio Hall, and Deon Cole.
“It’s our honor to rework L.A. for one week into the funniest place on earth,” said Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos during a handout. “This festival may be a unique celebration of the art of comedy, and therefore the role it plays in reflecting our lives and defining culture.”
“It’s an opportunity for comedy lovers to return together and see their favorite artists, also as discover new ones, and for us to be ready to share the electricity and excitement of the festival in l. a. with Netflix members around the world,” added Sarandos.
On the last night of the festival, people like Chappelle, Hart, Chris Rock, Whoopi Goldberg, and Jerry Seinfeld will honor the primary class of what’s being called The Hall, which may be a hall of fame for comedians. Richard Pryor is going to be one of the people inducted.
Tickets for the various shows are already available for purchase.
Plus, Foxx is going to be one among the celebs to kick things off, since he’ll be hosting two shows at the Hollywood Palladium on April 29. Lawrence will host another Palladium show the subsequent night.
