Chris Rock will hit back the way he does best — on stage. The legendary comic is set to perform a live standup special on Netflix on March 4, where he’ll address Will Smith slapping him at the Oscars, according to Netflix.
“Netflix” and “Live” aren’t typically uttered in the same sentence. The March 4 show, the first-ever live stand-up special offered on Netflix, will be bookended by two other live comedy shows.
The festivities begin at 8:30 p.m. CT, where Ronny Chieng will host a pre-show from The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. The pre-show reportedly features messages from Arsenio Hall, Leslie Jones, Cedric the Entertainer, Ice-T, Paul McCartney and more.
Rock will then go live from Baltimore at 9 p.m., followed by another roundup of comedic commentary billed by Netflix as “The Show After the Show.” David Spade and Dana Carvey are set to emcee, with appearances from JB Smoove and basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
The special will remain on the platform after it airs for subscribers to watch at any time, but the pre-show and “The Show After the Show” will only be available live on March 4 — at least for now.
