My favourite comedy specials (so far)

I love stand-up comedy and have since I discovered it. Also, I love dark humour, and that is something that the Brits do so well. This post is just a list of my favourite comedy specials (so far)—all available on Netflix. These are just the ones I thought of from the top of my head.

British comedy

I love British comedy. It’s much more witty and darker than American comedy. I love that the Brits just don’t care.

If you are into dark comedy, you’ll love Daniel Sloss and Ricky Gervais.

Daniel Sloss’s special, ‘Jigsaw’ has caused a quarter million couples to break up, so if you’re on rocky ground with your partner, do not watch this with them.

Ricky Gervais is always funny.

If you are after something lighter, you’ll probably like Russell Howard, Michael McIntyre, and Jack Whitehall.

American comedians

One of my favourite comedians is Bill Burr. He’s a redhead (when he still had hair) and so angry. It’s hilarious.

Bill Burr, Tom Segura, and Bert Kreischer (aka The Machine) are all friends and have roughly the same kind of comedy. I love watching their comedy.

Here are a few others I also like are Dave Chappelle, John Mulaney, and Taylor Tomlinson.
