Throughout 2015, Netflix has been dropping an array of great comedy content (“Master of None,” “With Bob & David,” etc) sure to please any humor palate, but it appears that the streaming service has saved the best for last. This December, Netflix will be dropping entire seasons of new comedy series, brand new stand-up specials and a holiday extravaganza that promises to entertain.
The weather outside may be frightful, but a night binge-watching comedy is simply delightful. Here’s a look at Netflix’s end of the year comedy offerings.
Real Rob – December 1
“Real Rob” finds Rob Schneider playing the role he was born to play – himself. The scripted sitcom, based on the comedian’s life and comedy, follows Schneider as he explores the ups and downs of celebrity and balances his home-life with his wife and daughter. Some of Schneider’s “Saturday Night Live” friends, including David Spade and Norm MacDonald, also make cameo appearances in the true-to-life show.
Brent Morin’s Stand-up Special – December 1
For the last couple of years, Brent Morin has been sharing his many talents with comedy fans via the hit NBC series “Undateable.” Dramatic acting, singing and improv are all in Morin’s comedy tool belt and on Dec. 1, Netflix will premiere his debut, hour-long stand-up special.
A Very Murray Christmas – December 4
Perhaps the most anticipated of Netflix’s comedy offerings is “A Very Murray Christmas.” Directed by Sofia Coppola and starring the incomparable Bill Murray, this holiday special is something that can bring the entire family together. George Clooney, Amy Poehler, Chris Rock and Miley Cyrus are just a few of the A-list celebrities slated to appear in this Netflix holiday variety show.
The Ridiculous 6 – December 11
In the past there was “The Magnificent Seven,” the future will bring us Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight,” and this December, Adam Sandler will debut “The Ridiculous 6” exclusively on Netflix. The film is the first of a four-movie deal that the streaming service made with Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions. Terry Crews, Steve Zahn, Whitney Cummings and Jon Lovitz co-star in this mock-Western.
Mike Epps: After Dark – December 18
For years, Mike Epps has generated laughs on the big screen in hilarious films like “Next Friday” and “The Hangover.” He is set to appear as comedy legend Richard Pryor in the upcoming Lee Daniels directed biopic, but before then, his brand new comedy special, “Mike Epps: After Dark,” will drop on Netflix on Dec. 18. If you can’t wait until mid-month for some Epps stand-up, check out his previous special, “Don’t Take It Personal,” also on Netflix.
F Is for Family – December 18
Last, but not least, Netflix will be dropping its first animated series for adults, Bill Burr’s “F Is for Family,” on Dec. 18. Burr will be voicing a 1970s father figure who says what he’s thinking and has little patience for nonsense. Laura Dern, Justin Long and Sam Rockwell round-out this talented voice-over cast.
