Netflix Adds a Standup Special from Ray Romano
Ray Romano is the latest comedian to land a Netflix standup special. Deadline reports that the streaming network has ordered an hourlong special from Romano, who starred in Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon’s film The Big Sick last year. A release date has not yet been revealed, but surprisingly, it will make Romano’s first-ever standalone comedy special. Romano is just the latest of a long list of comedians with Netflix specials in the works including Ellen DeGeneres, Billy Eichner, and Steve Martin and Martin Short, not to mention weekly talk shows on the way from Daily Show alums Michelle Wolf and Hasan Minhaj.
