"Chris Rock is one of the most iconic and important comedic voices of our generation," Robbie Praw, Netflix vice president of Stand-up and Comedy Formats, said in a statement. "We're thrilled the entire world will be able to experience a live Chris Rock comedy event and be a part of Netflix history. This will be an unforgettable moment, and we're so honored that Chris is carrying this torch."
Although not too much information has been revealed regarding the livestream event, it is known that Rock partnered with Netflix already for the comedy routine known as "Tamborine" in 2018. Rock also showed up at the "Netflix Is a Joke" comedy festival early on in 2022 alongside comedian Dave Chappelle.
The upcoming performance of Chris Rock on Netflix will mark his seventh stand-up comedy routine special. At the moment, Rock is touring with his "Ego Death" routine, with shows throughout California, Texas, and Washington.

It is still unknown as to how many viewers that Rock will attract exactly, but it is predicted that he will attract thousands or millions of viewers. Even if viewers are still discussing the "slap" incident with Smith, they are likely still going to be loyal and devoted fans on the streaming service, as Netflix attempts to better compete with other live streaming services.
