Default Best comedy specials on Netflix

Alright, there's so many of them and I don't wanna go through all of them, what are your favorites.

Mine are:
Sarah Silverman - A speck of dust (she's still got it).
John Mulaney - The comeback kid (not every joke lands but it's a pretty tight set).
Jim Gaffigan - Cinco (great impressions)
Ali Wong - Baby cobra (it's kind of easy laughs but it gets you there)
Amy Schumer - The leather special

Special mention to Aparna Nancherla in Ep. 6 of Season 2 of The Standups. That was a hilarious presentation she did at the end there. Also Iliza Shlesinger - Elder Millenial (she does fantastic impressions, even if her topics and insight are a little on the lame/predictable side).

Worst five:
Hasan Minhaj - Homecoming king (good jokes, worst delivery ever)
Chris Rock - Tamborine (boy, middle age is just not treating him well)
Maria Bamford - Old baby (she's weird, that's the schtick. I didn't get it)
Jerry Seinfeld - Jerry before Seinfeld (something like Rock, over the hill, dad jokes)
W. Kamau Bell - Private School Negro (just not funny).

Also, especially disappointed with Dave Chappelle, just ruined his reputation and comedy with all the trans hatin'. And he's such a funny man normally...what was the need...? :/

I was trying to take your selections seriously until you put Amy Schumer on your list. Perhaps the least funny comedian I've ever seen.

Some of my faves would be:

Jim Jefferies: I could care less what people think of it, his comedy is funny.
Steve Martin & Martin Short: The special they did was awesome. Both of them together doing **** all. it's great.
Neal Brennan: His 3 mic special is really funny. Funny dude too.

Right off the top of my head, those are the three I can think of right now.

Well the thing about comedy is that it depends on your preferences, like music. So to each their own as they say...

Yeah but if you like Amy Schumer then you're as objectively unfunny as you are objectively tasteless if you're a Nickelback fan.

Check this and ascend to the level of an actual human being.

Oh I think I saw a clip of his recently, with a cigarette and alcohol. He looks like he'll die of a heart attack very soon. I'll give it a try.

He's been about to die for years and is proud of it. I'm sure if he does his funeral will be televised with an open bar roast and it'll be the best two hours of the decade.

Doug's bit on drunk internet buying sprees is hitting way way way too far home considering I got a package today and I'm still waiting with baited breath for the next one in a few days and I'm pretty sure out of the last ten orders I might have been sober for two of them. **** the internet, **** debit cards, and **** the morning after. The worst part is that I just checked to make sure I only had the one order pending and I was legitimately surprised that it was only one. I could swear I had two.

Edit: Holy **** it is two. The other one is an omnibus for the Phoenix Saga from X-Men that I ordered from a comic book site. When the **** is that coming cause that was my most shameful drunk buy at $60 but it was so reduced that I had no choice but to pull the trigger and I felt awful directly after but there's no chance for a refund so... HELL THE **** YEAH YO, THAT COMIC IS AWESOME!!!

I like Chris Delia, he has a few specials on Netflix, I like his sense of humor and delivery, also Its funny when he goofs on himself for looking like Bob Saget.
