7 Netflix Comedy Specials That Help Relieve Your Re-Sit Study Stress

Need a little bit of laughter in your life? Feel like watching something easy and relaxing as you fight down the urge to cry from laughter? Well, thanks to Netflix, you can laugh to your heart's content in the comfort of your own home without anyone judging you because of that weird snort you do at the end of your laugh.

With so many to choose from, it's easy to get lost in all the Netflix comedy specials, not knowing which one to start or which comedian will tickle you the hardest, so here are a few stand-ups that we think are some of the best on the market right now (each photo takes you to their special, so you don't even need to look it up).


Dave Chappelle

Dave Chappelle is simply incredible. Having just released another Netflix special, he is on a roll. Starting his career many years ago, Chappelle left the limelight to get away from all the fame and focus on his family, but in the past couple of years he has slowly been rising back to prominence, showing that he still hasn't lost his touch.


Greg Davies: You Magnificent Beast

Once a teacher, Greg Davies is famous for his roles as the headmaster in Inbetweeners and the main character in Man Down (also a teacher). Now a comedian, this special focuses on him rambling away angrily about his love life, childhood, and the death of his mental yet hilarious father.


Bill Burr: Walk Your Way Out

Bill Burr has multiple specials on Netflix (with one coming out in September) and an animated show which he writes and stars in. This white, pasty, ginger is known for his controversial comments that sometimes anger the audience yet never falls flat on his face, mainly because he doesn't give a crap.


Chris D'Elia: Man On Fire

If this man is somehow related to Adrian Delia, he certainly doesn't show it. Funny, quick-witted, and secretly intelligent, Chris D'Elia is maybe not for everyone but he certainly puts on a show as he walks around on stage, jeans round his arse, making fun of the audience for anything and everything.


Aziz Ansari: Right Now

Writer and star of Master of None, Aziz Ansari has shown off his wit on numerous occasions, and it doesn't stop at his TV shows. His stand-up is funny and insightful as he talks about race, gender, politics, and Crazy, Rich, Asians; making his stand-up special a must watch.


Ricky Gervais: Humanity

Ricky Gervais is the poster boy for dry British humour. Over the course of his career, he has made a name for himself for being quick-witted, vulgar, and ready to take the piss out of anything, including the Bible. Humanity is no exception and is perfect for fans of the UK Office, Extras, and most other British comedies.


Louis C.K.: Hilarious

Louis C.K. might be one of the most controversial comedians from the modern-age of comedy. A year after his whole scandal went down, he has started to re-appear on stage performing his routine as if nothing ever happened. Whether you are for or against him as a person, he is still one of the funniest comedians to see in-action as he runs through his skewed and insane views on life.
