Netflix is getting ready to get the world laughing.

Today, the streaming service announced plans for a comedy festival featuring 130 comedians; Netflix is a Joke: The Festival will be heading to Los Angeles, California in 2022. The festival is already set to feature the biggest names in comedy - including, but not limited to Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes, and Kevin Hart, who is set to kick the festival off when he appears in Live in Front of a Studio Audience on December 7th

Dave Chappelle is also included in the festival's line-up, even in light of his recent controversial special The Closer. He will headline The Hollywood Bowl. Bill Burr and John Mulaney will also headline unmissable stand-up performances at The Forum.

The festivities will include comedic stylings other than stand-up as well: Iconic comedy duo Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will have a conversation at the YouTube Theater. (If you say you wouldn't pay to see that, you're lying.)

While the 2022 event was just announced today, it is already a highly anticipated event. Netflix is a Joke: The Festival was scheduled to take place last spring but, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, it had to be postponed. Robbie Praw, Netflix's director of comedy and stand-up formats, commented:

"It's absolutely thrilling for Netflix to be hosting a comedy festival of this magnitude in Los Angeles...We were so disappointed to postpone the event last spring, and our line-up of comedians can't wait to bring much needed laughs to audiences in LA and around the world on Netflix. Netflix Is A Joke Festival is going to give comedy fans the opportunity to see the greats and discover new faces in one of the greatest cities in the world."
